SquareMeal Review of Osteria at the Barbican

The latest restaurant in the Barbican complex places prime Italian ingredients centre-stage – witness the table piled with charcuterie, olives and homemade bread. Osteria is a collaboration between Anthony Demetre (Arbutus, Wild Honey) and Searcys restaurant group. Its second-floor premises may resemble an airport lounge (faux leather chairs, geometric carpet), but the eye-catching menu makes amends. Patrick Leano (ex-Arbutus) produces a seasonal list where plump grilled octopus might be piqued by smoky peppers and earthy potatoes. Another starter, pearlescent sea bream carpaccio, needed more seasoning, but our meaty monkfish main course was much better, teamed with Tuscan beans, orange, and creamy puntarella dotted with salty anchovy. Slow-cooked beef with polenta melted with tenderness, and dessert of moist chocolate and pear tart was just so. Osteria’s allure is boosted by impressive cocktails, hearty Italian wines and helpful staff – it’s time to shunt that visit to The Barbican Centre to the top of your London list.
