What they say:
The Salt Yard group opens yet another Central London restaurant, bringing the opulent glamour and engulfing charm of Venice to St James's Market. With a menu curated by Head Chef James Thickett - formerly of Opera Tavern - guests can expect to dine on traditional British and Venetian seafood dishes, whilst indulging in some of the finest wines produced by Northern Italy's endless vineyards. Crucially, the delicately balanced array of flavour combinations are wonderfully complemented by the venue's sleek aura.
What we say:
The Salt Yard group certainly know what it takes to storm up London's culinary ladder, having already opened Dehesa and Ember Yard in Soho. The food on offer will undoubtedly be stunning, and if the team can maintain their commitment to freshness, the dishes they produce will put a smile of the faces of all who indulge. But of greater significance is the restaurant's location; truthfully they couldn't have chosen a more ideal setting. Steeped in history, wonderfully immersive and with a weightless romanticism about it, St James's Market perfectly complements the sleek vibes the restaurant hopes to create.
