With expectations firmly fixed high, the opening of Margot in Covent Garden by international restaurant professionals and former colleagues Paulo de Tarso and Nicolas Jaouën who worked together at Scotts, has not gone unnoticed. Cited as Covent Garden’s answer to a true Mayfair establishment, complete with doormen and seamless service, Italian-inspired Margot brings a sense of bygone Italian luxury to the capital.


Having worked for many years in the hospitality industry, de Tarso and Jaouën make service the key element of their guest’s restaurant experience ensuring that their staff are excellently trained with expert knowledge of the venue’s wine list, ingredients, suppliers and location. In their kitchen, classically taught Executive Chef Maurizio Morelli offers a menu which touches on classics and modern interpretations of traditional Italian dishes. The carefully curated selection of dishes span traditional cured meats, carpaccio and tartare dishes, salads, homemade pasta and a range of meat and fish main courses.

Created by Fabled Studio, the interiors of the 104 cover restaurant create an inviting, relaxed yet polished setting. Inspired by the architecture and design of famed Italians Giò Ponti and Carlo Mollino, Margot’s key features come in deep blues, pale marble and copper accents.
