Restaurateur Roberto Costa, known for his much-loved restaurant group, Macellaio RC, will open Fish Game in London’s Canary Wharf on Monday 10 July.
True to its name, Fish Game will put ultra-seasonal, sustainable British ingredients centre stage with a pared-back seasonal changing menu of the UK’s best game and fish, meticulously sourced from the UK’s lands and surrounding waters and cooked simply over ash and the charcoal.
The newly unveiled menu will feature dishes such as; Rabbit croquettes with marjoram mayonnaise and lemon zest, Native Oysters, Crab and pork bao with curry sauce, Tigella bread with offal, rabbit, lemon and parsley gravy, Wild trout on toast with cucumber, smoky salad and fresh chilli, Mussels with venison nduja and Sea bream butterfly with datterino tomato, taggiasca olives and pine nuts.
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. Executive Head Chef, Matthew Colk (previously, the Roast and The Gun Pub) 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’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.
Samuele Lombardi, Fish Game’s head bartender will also be serving classic cocktails with a twist. As well as fronting an exciting collaboration with El Camion tequila, offering a selection of different tequilas and Mezcal.
Fish Game has been designed by Roberto and Franco Costa, who is the founder and owner of Costa Group, a successful European furniture leader famous worldwide. Distinctive elements will include a wood and 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, the restaurant 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. The restaurant 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.”
