Murano Restaurant Review

: Buying Murano off Gordon Ramsay has done nothing but good for the highly talented Angela Hartnett. The cooking is just as inventive as ever offering a succession of dishes that rely on quality ingredients and the skillful simplicity of the cooking to bring out the best. Try a summer tomato and roasted red pepper gazpacho, followed by monkfish meunière with razor clams, tomato and almond purée. And desserts? How about passion fruit tart in a masterly pine nut pastry with rice ice cream, or apricot soufflé with amaretto ice cream? Perhaps excellent cheeses from La Fromagerie shop? À la carte menus are accompanied by those little extra somethings from the kitchen: wafer-thin slices of ham and tiny scoops of sorbet. By contrast, the décor in the dining room is bland, though two glass chandeliers help add a bit of a wow factor. The wine list is overseen by a sommelier who is happy to recommend wines for every budget. It may seem an expensive three courses for £65, but this is London and the level of cooking and ingredients justifies the cost. But like many top London restaurants, the set lunch is a steal. 3-course lunch £20, à la carte 3 course menu £65, 4 courses £75.
