Cucina Asellina might be Italian but this new restaurant at the ME by Melia Hotel on the Strand comes to us via New York. The sister restaurant of Asellina in Manhattan is now open for breakfast, lunch, dinner or cocktails with last orders at 12:30 AM for theatre-goers. The food is said to be 'artisanal, affordable, Italian home cooking' with a focus on flatbreads. Signature dishes include a wild mushroom, fontina and spring onion pizza and old fashioned spaghetti with pomodoro, fresh basil and olive oil followed by tiramisu, affogato, gelato and other traditional desserts. Just like your mama used to make it.
