Emilia's pasta restaurant to launch second site in Aldgate next month
27-year-old restaurateur Andrew Macleod, founder of craft pasta restaurant, Emilia’s, in St Katharine Docks, is opening a second location in Aldgate next month.
Following extensive visits to some of Italy’s most famed regions, Andrew spent 18 months learning from local Italian chefs with a passion for cooking recipes passed down through the generations.
Emilia’s Aldgate offers seven pasta dishes which Andrew has ‘fine-tuned’ to pay homage to the original dishes from various regions in Italy.
Emilia’s Aldgate will be able to extend its current offering since a bigger kitchen will allow for a revolving specials board showcasing new dishes with ‘signature’ ones, too.
Emilia’s Aldgate will offer 55 covers in a setting inspired by the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.
An open kitchen allows diners to watch chefs prepare food, whilst a manned pasta counter presents itself at the window of the restaurant giving 360 degree views of the pasta being made.
Guests will also be able to dine alfresco with 24 outdoor seats.
