Harden’s today (26 January) unveils the first event in a new line-up of exclusive dinners for its 2018 Harden’s invites series. Throughout the year the restaurant guide and review site will present special culinary experiences at different, renowned UK dining destinations.
First up, join Harden’s co-founder Peter Harden and Giorgio Locatelli on 26 February at the chef’s Marylebone HQ Locanda Locatelli – one of London’s most “polished” Italian dining rooms (“at its best, nowhere else matches it”). This one-off event sees Giorgio step back into the kitchen with his former protégé Andy Needham to co-create a special four course menu. Andy worked alongside Giorgio from the early days of Olivo restaurant in Pimclo to the attainment of a Michelin Star at Zafferano, he is now the chef-patron of L’Amorosa in Ravenscourt Park which wins abundant praise from Harden’s reporters for its “high end Italian cuisine at local prices” and, although it’s a neighbourhood place, people travel from miles around to eat there.
The event starts at 7 pm with an Ombra di Pantera Prosecco and canapé reception, then guests will take their seats for a four course Italian menu (with two courses designed by Giorgio and two by Andy) with matching wines, followed by coffee and petit fours.
The Harden’s invites series kicked off last year with a sell-out evening at Le Gavroche in September hosted by Peter Harden and Michel, Emily and Giselle Roux, in celebration of the launch of their latest cook book New French Table. Followed by an evening at Jason Atherton’s flagship restaurant Pollen Street Social which saw Atherton cook alongside his head chefs from Social City and Social Eating House for the first time ever, then a special Great British Menu dinner at Birmingham’s Purnells – celebrating 10 years in business – and ending with a banqueting style sharing feast at Jun Tanaka’s The Ninth in Fitzrovia in November.
Tickets for Locanda Locatelli are £110 pp. To book your place please email Tracy Hall on email@example.com or call Harden’s on 020 7839 4763. Booking lines open Mon-Fri, 9.30 am-5.30 pm.
