From antipasti to dessert Manicomio restaurants in the City and Chelsea offer a separate vegan menu alongside their mainstream menu which is a rare thing to find. This beautifully designed restaurant is inspired by the Italian cuisine and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their mainstream menu is also vegetarian friendly but the vegan addition makes it a good choice to bring a group of friends with different dietary choices together.
Both Manicomio locations offer al fresco dining in a clean and non-fussy way and seem to be a preferred destination for a quick business lunch. Pasta is the highlight of the menu and is available gluten-free. The kitchen’s attention to detail and care for various dietary choices really show in plates like beetroot gazpacho or wild mushroom linguini.
Manicomio is a bit on the pricey side for the food you get but perhaps it is worthy for this chic Italian experience.
If you are after a care-free lunch with clients and colleagues, this chic - but not over the top - Italian is a good option.
