Apero Opens in London

The Mediterranean restaurant opens in the historic Ampersand Hotel in South Kensington

Located in the original 19th-century vaults of The Ampersand Hotel, Apero, a modern Mediterranean restaurant inspired by the Italian tradition of the aperitivo, has opened in London.

Chef Chris Golding, formerly of Galoupet, has created a daily-changing menu of shared plates, including gnocchi with rainbow chard and smoked scamorza; cured mackerel, purple potatoes, fennel, pistachio and candied lemon; and green apple and castelfranco leaf.

Pastry Chef Ji Sun Shin, the former sous chef at Nobu, has created the dessert menu that includes set buttermilk with lavender and peach; olive oil, pistachio, and vanilla cake with vanilla ice cream; and lemon posset with churros.

The Ampersand Hotel first opened in 1888 and re-launched this year after a full renovation.
