Eat like the Italians, with this Soho restaurant’s monthly-changing regional food box and allow yourself to be transported from Tuscany to Veneto.
Choose between ‘Campo’ (vegetarian), ‘Maccellaio’ (meat), and ‘Mare’ (sea) three-course menus. In February, boxes will be a hearty fare for one of the coldest months of the year. Expect baked scallops with parmesan, lemon, thyme and pumpkin ‘in saor’ to start, followed by warming mains of Maiale al latte – a signature northern Veneto dish where pork shoulder is cooked long and slow in milk and spices. For the veggies, there’s the restaurant favourite spinach and ricotta malfatti with brown butter and sage. To finish, a generous portion of Tiramisu, a household favourite and a dessert said to have originated in the Venetian city of Treviso.
For Valentine’s Day, their San Valentino feast has you starting in Venice with DIY white peach bellinis, before journeying south to Sardinia for nibbles of pane carasau and pecorino cream followed by a primo of spaghetti with bottarga. For mains, its back to the mainland for Florentine tagliata (aged sirloin on the bone) served with rocket, parmesan and balsamic and to finish, it’s a return to Veneto for a pick-me-up of tiramisu and Giandujotti from Guido Gobino.
