Berkeley Street’s newest resident showcased an impressive array of its menu offerings in a spectacular party on the Eve of its opening. The Ferragamos' latest venture made quite the impression on us – and on the guestlist dotted with royals, socialites, and indeed the infamous family itself.
It was a night of impeccable standards. From the mouth-watering menu to the free-flowing Perrier-Joüet and Tuscan wines direct from the vineyards of the Estate, no expense was spared in convincing the Mayfair crowds of its place on the social map. And the revellers were certainly dressed for the occasion.
Invited guests were greeted with platters of fresh oysters and octopus salads, along with starters of liver crostini and tomato bruschetta, parmesan arancini, bresaola sticks, and beef tartare. You could have considered us sold on the spot – the quality was outstanding. There was a constant flow of delicious wood-fired pizzas from their brand new oven, the truffle pizza truly outranking all other pizzas for us in the UK.
Mains included mezze maniche lobster, porcini mushroom risotto, and arrabbiata penne. Lamb chops and fiorentina steaks were served with a mustard sauce.
For any guests with enough room for dessert, there were lemon, fruit, and chocolate tarts, vanilla panacotta, cheesecake, and my personal favourite from the list, the tiramisu.
Special shout out to simply the most charismatically charming live band we’ve seen, who provided a fitting soundtracks to keep the party positively roaring until the early hours.
15 Berkeley Street’s former resident Nobu undoubtedly left enormous boots to fill – but if this launch taught us anything, is that it won’t take long for Il Borro’s even greater footprint to create the waves in the Mayfair crowds it deserves.
Certainly, we had a mighty splendid time.
Il Borro opens 12th November 2021. You can find menus and details to reserve your table in Tuscan paradise in London here.
