What’s great about Saint Luke’s Table in Covent Garden is that it’s the kind of restaurant you will never know about unless, of course, you know.
Tucked away in the basement of The Library members club on St. Martin’s Lane in the heart of Covent Garden, Saint Lukes dazzles with a level of fine dining that could hold its own anywhere.
You do not need to be a member of the Libary Club to eat at Saint Lukes Table. Just ring up and reserve. But let’s qualify “fine dining.” The room itself is simple and relatively informal, however it’s the food that sings.
Head Chef Alessio Piras is 100% on top of his game. This is a man who knows exactly what he’s doing.
Prior to Saint Lukes, Chef Piras worked as a chef at Shoreditch house and Cecconis and his culinary philosophy is that cuisine shoule be “…an adventure in innovation and tradition.”
The idea behind Saint Lukes Table, say Piras, is that he looks for “..unique ingredients to use in traditional recipes to bring out authentic flavours. Each food recipe is carefully curated and paired with a wine to match.”
Piras says Saint Lukes only uses the best of locally sourced season’s produce and it’s obvious this is true.
“All our menus use the best of the season’s produce and is locally sourced. We aim for it to be a combination of refined cooking and delicious flavours but also importantly for it to be healthy and balanced,” said Piras.
OK, let’s cut to the chase. The menu is curated and straightforward. These are all the entrees. We had the Monkfish, Risotto and Linguine artichoke pasta. All three were superb.
Thank you chef Piras.
