Bernardi’s has opened on a corner site by the intersection of Seymour Place and Seymour Street where Maroush II once was. Set over two levels the venue serves up lunch, cicchetti, dinner and evening cocktails with a breakfast/brunch offering planned for weekends.
The chaps behind the restaurant are Gabriel and Marcello Bernardi. They originally hail from Melbourne but have been involved in the London restaurant scene for the past decade helping found the Cubitt House group (Grazing Goat, Pantechnicon Rooms et al). And they’ve put together an interesting team. Front of house will be Zoe Charlton-Brown who you may know from Cafe Murano in St James and in the kitchen they’ve got Head Chef Sabrina Gidda, a two-time Roux Scholarship finalist.
