We may be seeing a slowdown in restaurant openings in London at the moment, but there are also some classic restaurants that are still going very strong indeed. And one of them is Momo in Mayfair, which is celebrating its 23rd year serving up Moroccan cuisine with a huge makeover. They've had Mourad Mazouz in (sketch) to spruce the place up with a brand new interior (pictured above) as well as an extended terrace (with heaters when needed, of course).
In charge of the food is Executive Head Chef Hervé Deville - and here's what's on the menu at the moment:
- Octopus with salt-baked Beetroot and genevoise sauce
- Vegetable Tian with aubergine and basil, yellow and green courgettes, taggiasche olives & parmesan crumble
- Sea Bream with Artichokes Barigoule, spiced crab bourek with lettuce & mint
- Their traditional ‘Mechoui’ - an 18 hour cooked spiced lamb shoulder with vegetables, dry fruits & couscous
- Classic Momo Couscous, served with lamb cutlets, chicken & pistachio kofta & Merguez sausages.
And there's more to come. In April, they're launching a "19th Century style cocktail bar" called “Kwānt” by award-winning bartender Erik Lorincz. He led the American Bar at The Savoy to take prime position in the World’s 50 Best Bars Award. So you can expect very big things from that when it opens (we'll update with full details on that soon).
