Soho has a long and rich history of Italian culture, and this family-run restaurant in the heart of Soho is a contemporary addition, having served Italian cuisine for nearly two decades.
Conveniently named after its street address, there’s no forgetting where 40 Dean Street is located sitting amongst a cute cluster of quaint restaurants. The restaurant boasts a mahogany bistro-style interior, with a small (dog-friendly) dining space exterior which gives a postcard image of Soho-life and the restaurant’s clientele – clearly a favourite with the media crowd, local residents and theatre goers. I’ll admit, in all my years living in the area, it wasn’t until fairly recently that I became intrigued by Forty, which perhaps comes down to its refurbishment a few years ago.
So for my date night, I took my cousin Freda for a treat and much needed catch up. Nothing quite says ‘girly catch up’ like a cocktail in hand and comforting seafood pasta dishes. For our mains, we got Chef Rodrigo Morais to recommend a few of his specials…
We also went for…
40 Dean Street is perfect for anyone looking for an authentic Italian experience – with the hospitality to match! Its set menu offers an affordable dining experience, and the à la carte menu includes a selection of classics which have been tried, tested and approved by its regulars… I’ll be back again soon for more of that black ink seafood linguini!
