This Spring restaurateur Roberto Costa, known for his much-loved restaurant group, Macellaio RC will open Fish Game in London’s Canary Wharf. True to its name, Fish Game will put ultra-seasonal, sustainable British ingredients centre stage with a pared back daily changing menu of the UK’s best game and fish, meticulously sourced from the UK’s lands and surrounding waters and cooked simply over fire and the charcoal.
Whilst Fish Game is something of a departure from all Italian Macellaio, Roberto Costa’s ethos when it comes to cooking, of balance, simplicity and authenticity will be core to Fish Game. A British larder will be handled with the characteristic respect, restraint, and skill of a masterful Italian chef: Executive Head Chef Lello Favuzzi (previously at Mortimer House and L’Anima) has worked closely alongside Roberto to bring Fish Game to Life.
Adding to the appeal of Fish Game will be a tequila bar, where Aperitivo will be served daily, bringing a touch of Roberto and Lello’s home, Italy to London. The wine list menu will include some of the finest wines worldwide, both old and new, with a large focus on small artisan producers.
Fish Game has been designed by Roberto and the successful Franco Costa, who is the founder and owner of Costa Group, a European furniture leader famous worldwide. Distinctive elements will be wood, charcoal grill, chandeliers, and octopus wood carvings, as well as a private room with a table for 12 people divided by a vintage cold storage door. With sustainability being a number one priority, it will be filled with vintage and reused furniture and the elements of earth, fire, water, and sky are to be distinctive throughout the design in a rustic, yet stylish way.
Roberto Costa, Owner, and Founder of Macellaio RC says;
“Fish and Game, represent the most important elements for us, sea, and sky, brought together by fire in our brand-new concept. It will have a romantic atmosphere, with a high focus on sustainability, where the choice of wild animals goes according to the season, and everything is sourced carefully in the UK. Quality has no boundaries, and as an Italian restaurateur who has always been working with Italian products since the beginning of my career, since I came to the UK, I fell in love with the land, and I want to bring to my guests table the best English products. Fish Game will be an English feast by an Italian waiter
