Margot Covent Garden

I recently visited a new opening called Margot in Covent Garden and was excited to see what all of the hype was about. Although the name Margot is typically French, it is actually an Italian Restaurant. I had heard a lot about it and was excited to try it out. The location is half way between Holborn and Covent Garden, which is one of my favourite areas in London as I love boutique shops and small cafés. We ordered a selection of starters to share and some mains. I was excited to see Truffles appear on the menu, meaning that winter is really coming.

The charcuterie plate is a simple classic, beautifully presented at Margot.
Beef Tartare with Black Truffle and Scrambled Eggs is the perfect combination. I also love the presentation of this dish. The simple combination is very effective.
Cornish Crab Salad with avocado and olive dressing is an unusual combination however was a fresh mix of flavours and made a nice contrast to the rich meat dishes.
Vitello Tonnato or roast Veal served with tuna and mayonnaise sauce was accompanied with baby carrots and green bean salad. It was presented in the traditional way and was as authentic as I have tried in Italy, which is quite an accomplishment! 
Risotto with wild mushrooms was very creamy and rich. It was one of my favourite dishes due to the subtlety of the risotto accompanied by the strong and bold mushroom flavour. 
Rocket salad with tomatoes and balsamic vinegar is the perfect fresh side dish to accompany the main courses. 

All in all I would highly recommend Margot if you love authentic Italian food which is full of flavour. I loved the simplicity of the dishes and the way that they served everything in the traditional way instead of creating modern dishes out of the classics, which is very common in many Italian restaurants in London. 10/10!
