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.

"We used the TravelZoo offer of £40 for a set menu of 4 courses inc some drinks. The food was fresh and full of flavour, sticking to well known dishes (perhaps because of the set menu, although the same dishes were on the a la carte menu at much higher prices). The tiramisu was amazing. The service was delightful, although I did have to pour the mineral water... The ambience felt a little cramped with the perspex screens everywhere, but was otherwise elegant."
