Sparrow Italia

A modern coastal Italian dining concept, originally realised in Los Angeles, is opening a Mayfair outpost.

The restaurant (replacing the glitzy Onima) is set across three floors and houses a ground-level lounge and cocktail bar, a terrace dining room on the indoor / outdoor first floor, a dining room on the second floor, and a cigar lounge on the third floor. Expect the restaurant's Mediterranean aesthetic and design to feature plenty of neutral tones with accents of emerald and blue alongside natural materials.

Menu-wise think southern Italian coastal-inspired dishes - with an emphasis on sustainable and organic ingredients - as well as its innovative cocktails and well-edited selection of French and Italian wines. Highights on the menu include: Blue fin tartare, bone marrow agnolotti and whole grilled branzino and a truffle pizza.
