Macellaio RC, the italian experts of steak founded by Roberto Costa has revealed that they will be opening their fourth London Venue. The new Macellaio RC will be opening on Northcote Road in Clapham on the 21st of July. The restaurant chain that has been created by Roberto Costa is experiencing a great deal of success, with the launching of the fourth location as proof.
The new Northcote road site for the Macellaio RC will join the three other established London restaurants in South Kensington, Exmouth Market and Union street. However the new site will be working to set itself apart from its sister restaurants, with a heavy focus on italian wines. The selection of wines that will be on offer at the Northcote Road Macellaio RC have been selected especially by Roberto Costa. The bespoke wine list for the chain has been in development by Roberto since the first restaurant opened in London in 2012. The wine list is almost entirely filled with Italian Wine makers from across the country. The wine list now has more than a hundred different labels, all chosen for their character and in order to celebrate the winemaking industry in Italy.
The Clapham location that is opening on the 21st of July will have a similar format to the other locations by merging together a restaurant and butchers in a way that is unique to Macellaio RC. The butcher will offer the well known Fassona beef that has been butchered and dry aged on the site for customers. The menu for the restaurant will celebrate this beautiful meat with simply cooked dishes, The Fassano beef has been dry aged over 5-7 weeks in order to go tender in the restaurant’s ventilation cellars. This type of beef has come from the Piedmont area of Italy and is significantly low in fat and cholesterol because of the hypertrophic muscle growth in the cows.
