Brilliant head chef Alessio Piras is set to weave his magic at the all new Saint Luke’s Table from 2nd April.
The culinary jewel in the crown of LIBRARY, the private members’ club and hotel just off Trafalgar Square, and accessed via a staircase illuminated by a stunning stained-glass panel featuring Saint Luke himself – fittingly the patron saint of artists, brewers, butchers and stained-glass makers – this intimate and imaginative dining room feels like a private home with its rustic furniture, well-stocked bookcases and quirky artwork adorning the walls.
Featuring modern and bold tastes of the UK and Italy that capture the flavours of the season, menus will continue to evolve but currently include roasted quail, salsify, quail’s egg & raspberries, seared scallops, n’duja crust, truffle, cauliflower purée and lamb rump, Jerusalem artichoke purée, pecorino twirl and crispy parsnips. The restaurant seats 40 and serves lunch and dinner.
And after dinner…
Aside from Saint Luke’s Table, LIBRARY has also just opened speakeasy Dear Alice.
Step through the wardrobe door and find yourself not in Narnia but in another magical space inspired instead by Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Here in this utterly nonsensical setting you will find a menu of delectable mini pizzetta and focaccine complemented by an equally irresistible collection of cocktails. From Bees’ Knees – Archive Gin, orange bitters, lemon juice, egg white, homemade honey, syrup & honey wafer through to Grasshopper – dark rum, crème de menthe, lemon bitters, chocolate bitters, double, cream & mint sprig.
Saint Luke’s Table and Dear Alice will be open from Tuesday to Saturday, 6pm until late. All non-members of the Library have to book in advance and there is a £30 cover charge per person for Dear Alice which includes two signature cocktails and nibbles.
