Situated in Bermondsey, Legare is a welcoming neighbourhood Italian restaurant started by the upbeat duo Jay Patel and head chef Matt Beardmore. The ideal spot for some summer’s day pasta on their private alley seating or a cosy night in their minimal decor indoor seating. There’s a strong focus on seasonal ingredients with hearty, unpretentious portion sizes. Menu highlights include orecchiette with braised rabbit & swiss chard, tagliolini with anchovy butter & pangrattato and ricotta & pistachio cannoli for dessert. All of this can be washed down with some of your low sulphite friends from Legare’s respectable organic natural wine list. The team was also awarded a well-deserved Bib Gourmand accolade from the Michelin Guide in January 2021, so you know you’re in safe hands.
