In the site that was most recently home to Rumours, Mano Mayfair will offer a Brazilian-Japanese menu overseen by MasterChef: The Professionals semi-finalist Luciana Berry.
Designed for sharing, the launch menu includes carne seca bun (dried beef in a Brazilian bun); smoked picanha with yakiniku sauce; moqueca (Brazilian seafood stew with coconut milk and grilled sea bass); and Pudim (Brazilian crème caramel made with tapioca, salted miso caramel and brazil nuts).
The food menu will complemented by a cocktail list that’s focused on sake, cachaça and fresh tropical fruits.
Fargette, who has been involved with a number of restaurants, beach clubs and nightclubs on the French Riviera, and Colletta, an entrepreneur, have partnered with Bruce Isaacs (Ed’s Easy Diner) and Domenico Meliti to deliver the project, with more ventures planned.
The venue looks set to have a clubby look and vibe, with a design that references beach clubs and a line-up of top DJs.
Described as decadent and sensual, Mano Mayfair will have a golden ceiling, mirrored walls, hand-crafted furniture and a feature back-lit bar.
