What they say:
Specialising in snappy seafood fare, Rex & Mariano is the new Soho venture with Chelsea Fishmonger Rex Goldsmith behind the menu. Dedicated to an ethos for serving reasonably priced fish in a cool, open atmosphere Rex & Mariano welcomes the new species of unpretentious Pescatarian plates. With a focus on food, the restaurant will host a humble 8 wine offerings from California, France and Italy with a sweet little list of 6 cocktails to match.
What we say:
Taking understated dining to fishy depths, Rex & Mariano has a seemingly uncomplicated approach of sourcing British & Sicilian fish to prevent wallet weeping prices typical of seafood specialists. Fusing Mediterranean tapas bars with American Oyster shacks, this Soho eatery is a space of Oyster, Ceviche and Salad bars all rolled into one. Championing a toned down dining style, their fish should be swimming off the shelves come opening.
