London’s Italian restaurant, Macellaio RC in Union Street, has rebranded to Osteria del Macellaio – a restaurant serving wine and simple Italian food and a ‘whole cow’ experience

There is a new sustainable menu, using all parts of the cow cooked by the Executive Head Chef Lello Favuzzi.

The new concept celebrates the artisanal sustainability of Italian and British butchers, in a bid to fight wastage within the hospitality industry. Macellaio Union Street’s menu offers all the parts of the cow that are rarely used, with each cut of the animal cooked in a multitude of different ways featuring dishes with cuts that are not often seen on menus across the nation. 

The new menu is available at the Union Street restaurant only, a short walk from Borough Market, and features dishes of any three for just £29 per person. Owner and founder of the restaurant group, Roberto Costa, alongside the Executive Head Chef, Lello Favuzzi (previously Mortimer House) have created this new menu for a true Italian experience without compromises, offering diners a way of eating sustainable at a cost-effective price.  

Menu highlights include: Arancino Cacio and Pepe; Lard on Toast; Pane and Mortadella; Maccheroni alla Genovese; Lasagna al forno; Minestrone alla Genovese; Spezzatino with Potatoes; Angus Tonnato; Trippa accomodata and Chicken Liver Paté. Desserts to finish include the classic Tiramisu or Crème Caramel. 

Macellaio RC work with farmers who raise their cattle with love and passion in healthy environments and the new menu will showcase this. Sustainability and animal welfare are the highest of the teams’ priorities and this is shown throughout the new menu and in the suppliers Roberto has chosen.

One is the Lake District Farmers – a family run farm founded in 2009 by the late Ray Armstrong to facilitate a quality driven and sustainable supply chain for family run fell farms in The Lake District – known for supplying the highest quality meat across the country. 

Roberto Costa, founder of Macellaio RC says “I wanted to bring London a slice of my eating experiences from my home. Offering a sustainable way of eating with a variety of choice of high-quality meat without any compromise at the most competitive price, and that’s why I’m bringing in the Osteria del Macellaio menu for everyone to enjoy.”
