Cucina AsellinaBased on the popular Asellina restaurant attached to the Gansevoort Park Hotel in downtown New York, Cucina Asellina presents Italian home-cooked food in a contemporary setting. Along with STK it is one of two restaurants at the Norman Foster designed ME London Hotel. The design, also by Foster + Partners, is similar to its New York sister venue with terracotta walls, black metal lighting frames surrounding high-top tables and an earthy polished concrete floor. On the menu, created by Executive Chef Marco Porceddu, are antipasti plates, traditional pizzas and flatbreads from the wood-burning oven - the wild mushroom, fontina and spring onion pizza is a signature dish. Pasta is made on site daily - try the old fashioned square spaghetti with pomodoro, fresh basil and olive oil. Main courses include strozzapreti with prawns, and stuffed cerignola olives with roasted veal. Finish with a classic Italian dessert - tiramisu, affogato or gelato - or opt for passion fruit cheesecake with raspberry ice cream. Open from 10am until midnight for all day dining, this casual Italian is surprisingly affordable given the 5-star setting.
