The dramatic changes take inspiration from the late Antonio Carluccio’s first restaurant and deli, the acclaimed Neal Street in Covent Garden, and are inspired by his food heritage and today’s dining trends.
The restaurant feels modern and stylish, the new look features cosy corners, open spaces and vibrant colours. The insta-worthy foliage installation, eye-catching art and colourful ceramics are just the start of its fresh look.
For those lucky enough to get to the terrace on a summer’s day can enjoy this suntrap, made for people-watching. The bar is equally the perfect pitstop for an espresso or a
refreshing after-work negroni or cold beer.
Standout interiors deserve standout food that fits the vibe. From appetising antipasto to small plates every new dish is mindful of Antonio Carluccio’s motto of MOF MOF (minimum
of fuss, maximum of flavour).
Must-tries are the heritage dishes, taken from the original Neal Street restaurant – Prawns Marinara (with plum tomatoes in a white wine sauce, chilli and fennel); Pappardelle ai Funghi (mixed mushrooms in a white wine and porcini sauce), and Spaghetti Vongole (cuttlefish ink spaghetti white wine, chilli, garlic and parsley).
Other new dishes include Seafood Linguine with prawns, mussels and squid, topped with a whole langoustine and bottarga, whilst on-trend vegan options come in the form of a warm Kale and Almond salad (with spinach, broccoli, mushrooms and semi-dried tomato pesto), chargrilled Cauliflower Steak (with hazelnuts, semi-dried tomato pesto, chilli and cannellini bean purée) and Veganesca Spaghetti (olives, capers, tomato, chilli, raisins and garlic and herb breadcrumbs, hazelnuts, walnuts and pine nuts). The new menu caters to all palettes and dietary requirements.
Take time out for a leisurely brunch (with or without prosecco) with new dishes like Avocado Benedict, Courgette Fritters, fluffy Ricotta Pancakes, and a ‘full vegan’ with borlotti beans, smashed avocado, courgette, portobello mushrooms and tomatoes sitting alongside all the classic egg choices and healthy choices of granola, fruit, porridge, fresh juices and super smoothies.
Something that hasn’t changed is Carluccio’s range of beautifully packaged artisan products sourced from small, family producers all over Italy. From Calabrian sun-dried tomatoes to hand-filled Piedmonte peppers and the finest olive oils, there’s everything from Italian larder essentials to that perfect foodie gift.
What is new though is the cheese deli featuring a vast array of regional Italian varieties, including many rarely seen in the UK – creamy Piedmontese Carboncino, Sardinian Moliterno al Tartufo, with generous peels of black truffle and the Venetian Ubriaco. The more familiar Mozzarella di Bufala and Parmigiano still feature and can be enjoyed with an Italian wine match, including a great Lambrusco from the deli.
The day has arrived and we are beyond excited to share with you the re-opening of Richmond Carluccio’s. A brand new chapter in Carluccio’s history, this new and improved restaurant features a whole new look, but the same passion and love for food that @cookcarluccio gave Carluccio’s Cafe all twenty years ago. . #Carluccios #Opening #Richmond #visitrichmond #Italian #Restaurant #Launch
