Fratelli's - Italian restaurant Maida Vale
London NW6 5RP
Probably some of the biggest news on the London restaurant scene in recent years has been the upsurge of fabulousness in hotel dining rooms. More and more often the very most exciting new eateries have found their homes in the capital's hotels.
Now Fratelli joins the ranks of greatness with its plush Maida Vale location at the Marriott Hotel. The modern clean decor and open, live-theatre kitchen give the restaurant a certain up-to-the-minute vibe. The authentic, equally up-to-date Italian menu is just right for how we like to dine now.
But first, begin your evening in style with a drink in Café Maurice, featuring terrific cocktails and an array of wines and champagnes by the glass.
Follow on into the restaurant and choose from Chef Mark McGlinchey's menu, certainly not your typical Italian. The ingredients have impeccable sourcing and the wine list includes small family vineyards you may have sampled on holiday.
Try tiger prawns pan fried with garlic, tomato and basil to start, then main of pan-fried medallions of beef on dolcellatte mash with baby spinach and Chianti sauce, and finish with an amazing cappuccino flavoured with Tia Maria or a glass of iced lemonchello.
Fratelli an Italian word meaning brothers is an apt name for this restaurant that has coupled modern Italian styles of cooking with a superb service. Good food with brilliant service makes this brotherhood clear.
