Cult Italian restaurant chain with a focus on sustainability, Miscusi is set to launch in the UK on 23 November, in London's Covent Garden. The brand is 'rooted in respecting the planet through the power of food'.
On the menu, there will be classic fresh pasta dishes made with quality sustainable and seasonal ingredients, starter dishes, like bruschetta and burrata, and classic Italian desserts, along with a selection of Italian wines.
Diners will be able to choose from recommended combinations or create their own personalised main dishes, such as Carbo croccante - spaghetti carbonara with guanciale, Pecorino and chopped pistachios, Cacio e pepe with a prawn tartare, and Lentil Mezze maniche with diced tomatoes, basil and ricotta.
Situated in The Yards, Miscusi London is going to be only the second B Corp restaurant in the UK, which means it will meet 'the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance' .The restaurant will work towards being plastic-free and zero waste, and its delivery packages will be recyclable.
The brand was founded by Alberto Cartasegna in Milan, who started as a kitchen assistant in London at Belgravia’s Oliveto Pizzeria when he was 18. He is now a Forbes Under 30 entrepreneur with 12 restaurants in his portfolio.
Cartasegna told the Standard, 'London is known for being one of the best food cities in the world, so choosing the UK for our first launch outside of Italy was really a no-brainer.
'I am so pleased with the way we have grown in Italy over the past four years, and to now be coming to London is a huge step for us and the first place I thought of when deciding to take miscusi to an international location.'
