Fitzrovia sees opening of new restaurant inspired by history of Sicily

Norma has opened its doors in Fitzrovia today (September 11) under the leadership of culinary director Ben Tish.

The restaurant is said to be the first independent restaurant project from the team behind The Stafford London, and is inspired by the food and culture of Sicily.

Norma takes its inspiration from the café culture of Sicily - the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its ingredients and produce are heavily used by Ben, who is knowledgable of the flavours of the region.

Housed in a converted townhouse on Charlotte Street, Norma is split across three floors containing dining areas, a cocktail bar and a private dining room.

A crudo bar sits on the ground floor, offering seasonal raw seafood, while the main menu focuses on modern Sicilian-inspired dishes. Homemade food will be on offer, including private dining offers and sharing platters can be ordered at the restaurant, too.

Adding to Ben’s Sicilian-inspired menu, a drinks list includes wines and cocktails - supposedly named after battles and historic moments in Sicily’s early history.

Norma is now open, in Central London.
