The multi-award winning San Carlo restaurant group is excited to announce the launch of a brand new restaurant, Fumo, in Covent Garden, London. Open at 37 St Martins Lane; it follows the successes of the Italian family owned San Carlo London restaurants Signor Sassi (Knightsbridge) and Cicchetti (Piccadilly and Covent Garden).
The new 130 cover restaurant, which will be open seven days a week, offers all day dining and has the same chic and sleek design as the other restaurants, with Fumo featuring a solid marble feature bar.
The culinary focus will be on small plates or cicchetti using the freshest seasonal ingredients – mostly sourced direct from produce markets in Milan. The cuisine represents local specialities from the varying Italian regions and includes dishes such as Tagliolini Lobster, Cod Vicentina - Venetian style cod, Homemade Gnocchi Truffle (crispy gnocchi with cheese fondue with truffle) and Guazzetto di Cozze e Vongole (mussels and clams with tomato sauce, chilli and white wine) and Tuna Tartare made at your table with the best Sicillian tuna. In the kitchen will be a brigade of 15 chefs from all over Italy, guided by San Carlo executive chefs Filippo Pagani and Franco Bellamusto, as well as Chef Consigliere Aldo Zilli.
