Au Nouveau Nez
Time Out says
A great value Italian joint with a wine shop attached.
What should I order? Gnudi with buffalo ricotta, orange flower water and sundried tomatoes.
Headed up by a Tuscan chef and a Neopolitan sommelier, Au Nouveau Nez took root in a former wine cellar and has now extended into a perfect little restaurant, decorated with apple green walls and mismatched furniture. The menu features two starters, two mains, two desserts – and that’s it. The yellow plaice with grilled endive and preserved lemon (€14) is divine, but it should come as no surprise – chef Alessandra Olivi only works with super high-quality ingredients from small producers. His gnudi (gnocchi-like dumplings stuffed with buffalo ricotta) were orange-scented with an umami hit from the sundried tomatoes and parmesan (€9). The €8 mixed platter was great value for money and included Basilicata chorizo with fennel seeds. Serious bang for your buck.
