Rib of beef with Wild Mushrooms - Cafe Murano - November 2013 - JOHN CAREY
Cafe Murano will launch a new ‘Pranzo della Domenica’ Sunday lunch menu at both the St James’s and Covent Garden restaurants, starting from Mother’s Day, Sunday 6th March.

Angela has created the menu with executive head chef Sam Williams, as a nod to the traditional family Sunday meals of her childhood. With her signature style of simple, seasonal Italian cooking, the Sunday dishes are designed to bring together families and friends over shared roast cuts of meat, plates of cichetti and antipasti or bowls of fresh, silky pasta, made daily by the chefs.Cafe Murano BarIndulge in some Arancini with mozzarella and basil (£4) or Sweet and Sour sardines (£6.50) before enjoying antipasti such as Salt cod with wet polenta and Planeta olive oil (£8) or Cauliflower, golden raisins and smoked ricotta (£8).
