The latest addition to London’s dining scene comes in the form of Magenta, a modern Italian eatery, located within The Megaro Hotel opposite St Pancras Railway Station in King’s Cross.

Magenta’s vibrant menu cultivated by Michelin-starred Trinity alumni Manuele Bazzoni, offers a modern Italian menu with subtle British influences to highlight the best of the seasons.

The restaurant serves dishes including Dorset crab, crispy cannelloni and Amalfi lemon gel, alongside roasted seabass, potato crust, courgette flower and mussels, as well as fermented cauliflower, served with black garlic, girolles and cocoa butter. Wines, spirits, and cocktails will complement the food offering and celebrate the same regions.

Bazzoni, a former Sous Chef at Michelin-starred restaurant Trinity in South London has spent the last 10 years developing his skills at some of the top restaurants in the country, including Le Boudin Blanc in Mayfair.

The distinctive 66-cover restaurant boasts a cosmopolitan feel complete with a long theatrical bar taking centre stage. Upscale-casual interiors are by celebrated designer Henry Chebaaneand draw on a colour palette inspired by coal, concrete, and steel of the industrial revolution, accented by the magenta of its by-product.

Butterflies adorn the ceiling and on the ground, guests can dine at hand-built banquette tables with real vine leaves and red wine inside from Magenta’s Italian wine producers’ vineyard.
