This Easter Sunday, transport your tastebuds to the heart of Italy for an Easter Brunch at The Franklin Restaurant by Alfredo Russo.
Nestled in Knightsbridge and offering a quintessentially Italian experience, guests can graze on a sophisticated sweet and savoury buffet, followed by a traditional Italian dish from the exclusive Easter à la carte menu (£45pp).
A sensational way to start, the Savoury Buffet will boast a range of tempting treats to tuck into including marinated smoked salmon; fois gras paté with sweet apple jam and pan brioche; sumptuous savoury cakes; fresh green and tomatoes salad; and a pinzimonio selection, all served alongside an assortment of Italian cheese, bread and charcuterie.
Perfect for satisfying even the sweetest of tooths, take a trip to the Sweet Buffet and feast on decadent pastries, pancakes and muffins. Be sure to also leave room for chocolate Easter eggs, tirimasù, chocolate salame, a slice of Sicilian Cassata sponge cake, and Easter Colomba, a dove-shaped cake symbolic of Easter in Italy.
Ensuring a fantastic finale, guests can enjoy a dish from the Easter Italian à la carte menu, including dishes such as baked eggs with truffle; warming Pasta e Fagioli; rice-based Timballo di Riso; sea bream with olive oil and herbs; and a traditional lamb shoulder with roasted potatoes Italian style.
Why not celebrate the bank holiday and accompany your brunch with a bottle of world-class wine or a glass of the finest fizz to toast the occasion.
