Italian restaurant, Mercante, has launched a monthly Supper Club featuring a ‘no menu’ concept.
Put together to showcase the best of fresh Italian cuisine, the menu will offer a live cooked four-course dinner with wine pairings that will vary according to the season. The menu will be revealed to guests on arrival.
The new ‘no menu’ concept will present food inspired by the bustling markets of great Italian cities and will include high-quality produce influenced by regional specialties and traditional homespun recipes.
Created by Head Chef Davide D’Ignazio who has worked in Michelin-starred kitchens throughout Europe, including Chef de Cuisine for Antonello Colonna at his 1-Michelin starred restaurant in Labico, Italy.
As part of the Supper Club experience, diners will see Davide cook live in front of them as he prepares and creates each of the dishes. Every course will be served with a perfectly paired wine to enhance and complement the flavours on each plate.
For example, a flavoursome Risotto osso bucco, a classic Italian winter warmer, is accompanied by a glass of rich and velvety Passori rosso, from Veneto. Or perhaps an authentic Italian stew Rabbit Cacciatora paired with the fruity, crisp Terre bianche torbato di Alghero, made from the Torbato grape in the Sella & Mosca estate in Sardinia. Dessert lovers can try sweet but tangy pomegranate panna cotta with a glass of Vino santo Della Valdichiana, .
The ‘no menu’ Mercante Supper Club experience will be priced at £55 per person for four courses and wine pairings with advance booking required. It will run on every third Thursday of the month, starting from 16th November from 7pm.
