Chucs, a world of finery and elegance, has opened its doors in Notting Hill.
With restaurants in some of the most dazzling locations in London, each branch has its own distinct personality. Over in Westbourne Grove, its décor harks back to sharp, manicured, 1950s glamour. The predominantly blue and white interior feels bright and polished and the countless mirrors and tiny table lamps might trick you into thinking you’re in a luxury carriage on the Orient Express.
In true Chucs style, their exquisite Italian dishes are always served with finesse. Start by warming up the stomach with some of their finest antipasti, like their tuna tartar or refreshing beetroot salad. To follow, only hand-made pasta will do; simply drizzled with truffle oil makes it a delectable mouthful. If you don’t fancy pasta or pizza, choose from classics like a tender sirloin steak or a delicate sea bass.
Of course, the wine list is akin to a religious text, so make sure to treat it with respect. Sourced from Italy and France, each one is carefully chosen to compliment the delicate flavours of each dish. Ranging from £36 to over £600 a bottle, quality is only a sip away.
