Spaghetti House has introduced a new menu! It’ll be based on a new featured local produce each month to create three specials throughout that month.
So naturally, I was back at the original spaghetti House which started the entire chain in 1955 with other food writers to sample a menu based on May’s featured produce – the asparagus. June’s will be Norfolk strawberries. The new menu uses fresh, local produce, cooked the Italian way to maintains its freshness and flavour. This month’s specials are Norfolk asparagus with fried duck egg, rosemary, parsley and pancetta, Zuppa di Asparagi and Tagliatelle with fresh Norfolk asparagus and mascarpone, with a hint of anchovy, pangrattato and fresh basil.
The original restaurant on Goodge Street is a three storey delight of irresistible Italian cuisine. And with the kitchen being at the heart of the Spaghetti House, we were treated to a little cooking demo with the resident chef followed by a scrumptious meal served ‘family style’ as the Italians call it so we could all help ourselves and enjoy the meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
Although it was in the middle of the Tube strike, it was still a thoroughly enjoyable evening with Italian hospitality in full force. Delicious food, wine flowing freely and I also managed to pick up a delicious linguine and pesto recipe which I will share later. As always, a visit to Spaghetti House did not disappoint.
