Harden's says

Following the success of The Game Bird, The Stafford London and culinary director Ben Tish opened this independent restaurant, in a Fitzrovia townhouse, in late summer 2019. The cooking is "inspired by the food and culture of Sicily, with particular emphasis on the Moorish influences on the island’s cuisine"; a crudo (raw) bar also features.
