Here’s a review of a delicious meal I had recently at new(ish)ly opened The Localist in Clerkenwell along with an offer for you to get 50% off your visit if you book through CityMunch.
The Localist’s focus is on seasonal, European dishes bolstered with inventive cocktails and food friendly wines served in a comfortable chic setting.
My midweek lunch was a treat far better than I’d expected it to be – not that I had particularly low expectations, I just didn’t anticipate being quite so impressed. A starter of perfectly crisp fritto misto with smoked paprika and aioli (£10) kicked things off on a tasty note. A main course orecchiette with broad beans, guanciale, rosemary and Parmesan (£9.50) turned out to be equally ideal.
A glass of Sangiovese (£6.50) did its part to enhance my meal without overshadowing the food. But what almost managed to outshine my savouries was dessert. A vegan mixed berry millefeuille with the pastry cream made from coconut milk (£7). Flipping gorgeous (and I’m not really all that big of a fan of berries for dessert or millefeuille – and I’m certainly not vegan)!
Dessert was followed by a properly pulled double espresso. Service was fast and accommodating. I loved the spacious dining room (lots of natural light during the day) and would have loved even more to linger there for the rest of my afternoon.
But enough about me and my meal! Here’s how you can have your own Localist experience at a generously discounted half off your food bill.
