Norma

Located in Charlotte Street in London’s Fitzrovia, Norma is a contemporary and vibrant restaurant, inspired by the food and culture of Sicily with particular emphasis on the Moorish influences of the island’s cuisine. Norma embodies the celebrated old-school Italian hospitality and charm, taking inspiration from the grand café culture found in Sicily. Set across three floors of a characterful townhouse on Charlotte street the first two floors are dedicated to the restaurant, while the top floor is dedicated to private dining events. Norma Restaurant is characterised by great flavours, variety and supreme quality! Here you can feel the real taste of Italian cuisine with a nuance of Moroccan cuisine that makes this place unique and special. We strongly recommend you bucatini with Cornish crab pepper butter and lemon, meat of lamb with beans, and home-made focaccia; everything is outstanding and breath-taking. Remember to not leave the table without eating their stunning tiramisù, a typical Italian dessert that makes your dinner 100% complete. For those of you looking for a truly memorable dining experience, why not choose one of their delicious Feasting Boxes, delivered to your door, or alternatively treat yourself or a loved one to a Norma Experience, to enjoy at a later date, with one of their gift vouchers. Price range from £60 to £85. Check them out their Profile on Foodetective and order your “dinner at home” ASAP!

MAZI

Mazi located in Hillgate Street, London is an authentic Mediterranean Greek restaurant. The vision is to show the rest of the world how innovative, tasty and refined Greek food can be. They derive inspiration from the traditional Greek table and reinterpret old-time classic recipes with a modern twist. MAZI, which means "together" in Greek, revives the sharing culinary tradition of Greece and is at the very core of Mazi’s concept. Mazi’s restaurant imports most of its ingredients from Greece and sources fresh produce from local independent suppliers. This perfectly reflects the relaxing atmosphere and perfume that you can sneeze when you enter the restaurant; it is a real journey from the UK to Greece. As a tradition, the menu is designed to be shared by the whole table. The menu is split into small jars, salads, hot sharing plates, their bigger signature dishes, and dessert, but whichever section you get involved in, you’ll find classic Greek food that deserves a bottle of white wine for the company. We suggest you classic light calamari with a strong hit of citrus mayo, the delicious Tzatziki with a pinch of garlic, and the exquisite slab of Greek yogurt with raspberry ice cream between almond tuile. Everything is authentic and made with much love and care to the ingredients. Mazi offers delivery (6.00pm – 9.00pm from Monday to Tuesday) and Take-away (from Monday to Sunday) services straight to your home address. Average price per person is £40
