Angela Hartnett, London’s female chef du jour and former chief of The Connaught’s Michelin-starred restaurant, has taken the helm at Murano in Mayfair. The Gordon Ramsay-owned eatery, which opened Aug. 21, serves dishes including salad of scallops and roasted watermelon, langoustine and shrimp risotto and braised beef cheek agnolotti.
A three-course meal costs about 55 pounds, or $101, per person, excluding wine. Meanwhile, star-spangled French chef Helene Darroze stepped into Hartnett’s shoes at The Connaught in July, opening a namesake restaurant.
On the menu: Dover sole and Gillardeau oyster tartare with caviar d’Aquitaine jelly. Peppered with amuse-bouches, a three-course meal comes to about 75 pounds, or $138.
