To celebrate this milestone, Theo has enhanced his menu of simple, rustic, Italian cuisine with new dishes to complement his much-loved signatures. The menu will be available from mid-February when the restaurant re-opens its doors following an interior refresh, which will include a ‘kitchen table’ experience and updated bar with new menu and extensive drinks selection.
Theo’s new dishes will celebrate the simple yet robust flavours of Italian cooking, with seasonality at its heart. There will be an emphasis on fish and shellfish plus a selection of rare breed cattle and poultry dishes on the menu. In addition, a daily changing à la carte lunch menu has been created to incorporate a greater choice of dishes, seasonality, and varying prices.
The revised bar menu has been designed to offer a selection of authentic and innovative Italian cocktails, while the wine list will feature natural wines from young artisan winemakers and an extensive selection of Italian wines by the glass. A menu of small dishes and antipasti will be available at the bar; created to make it a destination in its own right.
The restaurant interior will have a more contemporary feel, with a brighter, lighter colour scheme and the installation of a brand new Kitchen Table seating up to eight people. Here, guests can enjoy a tasting menu designed 24 hours beforehand, guaranteeing a truly seasonal and spontaneous dining experience. In addition to the popular existing private dining room, the interior update will also see the introduction of a second private room, connected via a sliding door.
The new room will seat up to 40 guests, with the opportunity for this to be increased to 60 when the sliding doors are opened, creating an open space for a sit down dinner or a drinks reception. The space will also host Theo’s regular masterclasses.
