A new modern Italian restaurant, Osteria 60, has just announced its debut at Baglioni Hotel London in Kensington.
Chef Ivan Simeoli, along with restaurant director Francesco Tatulli and entrepreneurs Kanav Puri and Suraj Mehra, opened the new 88-seat dining venue, which also includes a bar with space for up to 15 people. Osteria 60 was designed by the Arth Group in conjunction with Milanese interior design firm Rebosio + Spagnulo, who drew inspiration from the traditional Milanese trattorias of the 1950s. There is also a terrace offering views of Kensington Gardens that can accommodate up to 30 guests.
Ivan Simeoli was previously head chef alongside Oliver Peyton at both the Royal Academy of Arts and The Wallace Collection. He has also previously held the position of Ambassador Hotel in Bloomsbury.
At Osteria 60, Simeoli’s dishes will combine British seasonal ingredients with traditional Italian staples. Typical dishes will include Carpaccio of wild sea bass with sea urchins; Scialatielli pasta with salt cod and amatriciana sauce; Risotto with San Marzano tomatoes and smoked provolone; Lamb chop with Sicilian aubergine and caponata; and Tiramisù croccante. There will also be a separate bar menu, including Pizzette, Arancini, various bruschetta and other seasonal pasta dishes.
Osteria 60 is open daily, with a lunch menu available from noon-3 p.m., and dinner served from 6 p.m.- 10:30 p.m.. Additionally, a breakfast service is available from 7 – 10 a.m., afternoon tea from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. and a weekend Italian brunch from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Bar remains open throughout the day until 1 a.m., offering a lighter menu as well as both classic and modern cocktails.
