In October 2016, Paulo de Tarso and Nicolas Jaouën opened the doors to Margot in Covent Garden. The restaurant is a true celebration of seamless service, refined interiors and the authentic food of Italy, all offered alongside an extensive international wine list.

As two seasoned industry professionals, for Paulo and Nicolas Margot is the coming together of years of experience working at several of London’s most well-regarded restaurants. With their signature service style the fundamental element of the restaurant’s concept, Margot makes guests feel relaxed and welcome, with a team trained to ensure each and every dining experience is exceptional.

With Executive Chef Alessio Piras at the helm in the kitchen, the food at Margot offers diners an authentic taste of Italy’s various gastronomic regions, with delicate, yet flavourful plates executed with a wonderfully light touch. From the menu, expertly selected cured meats and cheeses are followed by antipasti, carpaccio and tartare dishes, including options such as Roast pumpkin soup with burrata Pugliese, amaretti crumble and toasted pumpkin seeds and Sicilian prawn carpaccio, green bean salad and raspberry vinegar dressing. For primi, homemade pastas include the signature Pumpkin and ricotta ravioli with sage butter, toasted hazelnuts and Grana Padano, whilst for secondi guests can choose from dishes including Roast Cornish monkfish with pea puree, minted crushed potatoes and pancetta and Baked veal ossobuco, saffron risotto alla Milanese and veal jus.

Designed by Fabled Studio, the interiors of the 104-cover restaurant create an inviting, comfortable and refined environment. Inspired by the architecture and design of Italian greats Giò Ponti and Carlo Mollino, Margot features an elegant yet contemporary palette of deep blues, pale marble and copper accents throughout. Set across two floors, upstairs the dining space is flooded with natural light from the vast, original windows, whilst downstairs the Club Room offers guests a cosy escape from the bustle of Covent Garden’s Great Queen Street. The setting throughout provides a versatile backdrop and the perfect location for a relaxed lunch, atmospheric dinner, charcuterie and wine at the counter in the early evening, an aperitivo before a meal, or a late night digestivo. Furthermore, given the central Covent Garden location, Margot is also the perfect spot for pre and post-theatre dining.
