Meaning ‘to bind’ in Italian, the restaurant is located a short walk from London Bridge station and the capital’s iconic Tower Bridge. This first restaurant venture from Jay Patel and chef Matt Beardmore (previously at Trullo), and looking to bring the much-loved seasonal food and flavours found throughout Italy and the wider Med to London. The intimate interiors at Legare draw inspiration from the pastel washed walls commonly seen throughout Italy.
The broadly Italian menu featurs a short, changing menu of antipasti, fresh pasta (hand-made daily in-house) and a weekly specials board served alongside natural and low intervention wines from small producers - who follow ethical farming practices, with a focus on Italian production and some interesting bottles from neighbouring countries.
Antipasti options including fett’unta of goats curd & sobrasada and a daily crudo dictated by day-boat fishing and seasonal oysters; tajarin with ‘burro e salvia’ (butter & sage); orecchiette with fennel sausage & swiss chard ragu; and stracci with crab, chilli, garlic, saffron & pangrattato and a whole large Scottish lobster taglierini dish.
