The structure, throughout a number of small ranges attached by way of brief staircases, offers the gap a perfect, buzzy dynamic. The woodwork is painted in a lush darkish Studio Inexperienced (sure, Farrow & Ball), and the floor is black-and-white chequered tiles. All over the summer time, there’ll be a large outside terrace.
A tasting menu for £38
Despite the fact that issues get started mild and bubbling, they get steadily heavier. I went for the tasting menu, which is £38. The week earlier than, I’d long gone to the Lecture Room & Library at Comic strip for date night time, and 3 lessons was once £165, doubled by way of the wine. I didn’t begrudge paying a unmarried penny of that, as a result of I most effective pass as soon as each and every few years and Pierre Gagnaire is a culinary wizard, however I couldn’t know the way Celentano’s can pull this high quality of meals off for thus little.
I added beef fennel salami to my starters, and lasagne fritte. I all the time suppose the speculation of fried lasagne goes to be the entirety I love on this planet in a single chunk however am all the time upset. My file of sadness stays unbroken. There was once a seaweed cracker with pickled squash and pumpkin seeds, just like the poshest, maximum scrumptious crisp and dip ever. Then antipasti: I’m by no means considering the speculation of charred leeks, however lush, milky-sweet Stracciatella and a sprinkle of sourdough breadcrumbs made this probably the most highest dishes of the night time.
