What they say:
Having worked under two-Michelin starred Michel Roux Jr., Monica Galetti now steps into the dark this March, opening her first solo restaurant in Fitzrovia, called Mere. Named after the French word for 'mother' and the Samoan word for Mary, her own mother's name, it seems traditional will be central to operations here. Galetti has said her food would always be seasonal and ingredient-led, with a number of classic dishes having her own personal tweaks added to them.
What we say:
Holding up to 70 diners at a time, Mere will certainly have its work cut out if it's to compete with the other fine-dining restaurant in Fitrovia. After all, this central location certainly isn't short of gourmet restaurants serving delicious, traditional dishes. However, lifting Mere head and shoulders above the rest is the experience of Monica Galetti. With 12 years of work for such an acclaimed chef under her belt, we're confident Mere will soon become one of Fitzrovia's culinary highlights.
