What: Giannino Dal 1899
In a nutshell: Longstanding Milan restaurant opens its first European outpost in London
Summing it all up: Will Giannino Dal 1899 be the restaurant to succeed at this spot in Mayfair? They're hoping that the long lineage of the Milanese original will entice Londoners to try it.
Well this one snuck in a little under the radar. Taking over a site on Blenheim Street that's seen off several Italian restaurants over the years - most recently Camillo Benso and Assunta Madre - is Milan's famous Giannino Dal 1899.
As the name suggests, the original restaurant is 120 years old, having opened in Milan in 1899. This new London spot will be their first outside Italy.
So what can we expect? Well, they say there's a mixture of Italian classics with international dishes. So while ossobuco will be on the menu, so will tonarello cacio pepe with sea urchin, cocoa bean and lime along with a dish created especially for Mayfair - asparagus risotto mantecato with almond butter
