Negroni’s, a new Italian bar and restaurant from the team behind Lobos Tapas is now open on Frith Street in Soho. A welcome addition to the neighbourhood, with its reasonably priced pasta and pizza to die for, elevated Italian classics and a great selection of house negronis. Cheeky, dark and seductive, it offers an imperfect mix of yelling, loving, eating and drinking – pure Italiano!
Menu highlights from chef Filippo Ragone (O’Ver, Ostuni) include signature Gnocchi with blue cheese reduction, radicchio, guanciale, walnuts; Beef or Salmon Carpaccio; Tuna Meatballs and Crazy Frittatina. Negroni’s is open for dinner Monday to Saturday, lunch and dinner Sundays and takes reservations.
This Valentine’s Hawksmoor has two fantastic feast boxes for the perfect night in. Designed to impress with minimum hassle, time and potential for mistakes, choose from Chateaubriand or Centre-cut Rump Steaks for two. Aside from the ethically reared, grass fed beef, each box comes with Old Spot Belly Ribs to start, sides and, new to Hawksmoor, Chocolate Fondant with clotted cream to finish. The boxes are priced at £125 and £95 without drinks and £155 or £130 with drinks – Blood Orange Gimlet and Real Rioja Agrado with Chateaubriand or Champagne with Centre-cut Rump Steaks.
Centre-cut Rump is a new cut, “A true hidden gem, a barrel-shaped muscle that looks so much like the fillet it’s sometimes known as the rump-fillet. As lean as its more famous cousin, but with a deeper flavour and slightly firmer texture, carefully hand-butchered and dry-aged for 35 days” says Hawksmoor co-founder Huw Gott.
You can order Hawksmoor at Home Valentine’s Day meal kits for two alongside a variety of other steak or Sunday lunch boxes and drinks for delivery nationwide to mainland UK. Valentine’s Day boxes are available for deliveries from 10th to 12th and 17th to 19th February. Orders must be placed by Monday 9am for that week’s delivery.
Camino are delighted to announce that Bar El Rincón is now open at Camino Kings Cross, transforming Varnishers Yard into a veritable Spanish quarter.
With sustainably sourced wines on tap, in conjunction with Borough Wines, delicious tapas dishes by Executive Chef Nacho Del Campo and lots of cosy corners to relax in, it’s the place to be.
This spring, Varnishers Yard in Kings Cross will be transforming into quite the Spanish Quarter as Camino launches Bar El Rincón, a new wine and tapas bar next door to Bar Pepito and opposite Camino King’s Cross. Bar El Rincón, meaning ‘bar on the corner’, will open on 4th March as a one-year pop up.
Focusing on sustainability, Bar El Rincón will have a small but perfectly curated selection of drinks. Camino founder and oenophile Richard Bigg has worked with Borough Wines to select a white, red and rosé Spanish wine as well as a sparkling and a sangría, all available only on tap to dramatically reduce waste. Similarly, there will be a choice of two Estrella draught beers alongside a couple of cocktails.
New specials from Camino Executive Chef Nacho del Campo include a vegan superfood salad of Roasted patty pan pumpkin, mixed sprouts, kale and tabbouleh with pumpkin seeds and lemon zest. Camino classics including Arroz negro (black rice with cuttlefish, squid ink and aliolli) and Croquetas de jamón, Gambas Ajillo (prawns with garlic, chilli and white wine) will also be available.
Bar El Rincón will be an intimate, relaxed space with 35-covers including comfortable banquette seating, with exposed brickwork and earthy tones. During the warmer months, there will be additional seating in the courtyard.
