Perilla team to open Mediterranean restaurant Morchella



This new restaurant will serve Mediterranean cuisine overlooking Exmouth Market.

Prepare to embark on yet another gastronomic journey! Located just off Exmouth Market in what used to be a bank, Morchella is set to redefine the London dining scene with its modern take on classical Mediterranean dishes, using only the finest quality produce.

Known for their success with Perilla in Newington Green, Ben Marks, Daniel Fletcher and Matthew Emmerson are coming together to launch Morchella. The restaurant — opening its doors to the public in February 2024 — promises a dining experience that goes beyond the ordinary. 

As you step through the curved wooden doors, lovingly restored to their original glory, you'll find a charming dining room. The open kitchen anchors the space, connecting chefs and diners and offering a glimpse into the artistry behind each dish. Morchella's cosy wine bar provides the perfect setting for a quick bite or an after-work drink. A staircase leads down to the basement, unveiling a private dining room featuring a bespoke oak wood table and the restaurant's wine cellar. For those who prefer dining under the sun, Morchella has you covered with its outdoor terrace. Overlooking the vibrant Exmouth Market, this space is set to become a hot spot in the summer months.

The menu at Morchella, crafted with highly seasonal produce from both Mediterranean artisans and independent British farmers, reflects a commitment to conscious cooking. Picture yourself indulging in dishes like octopus luciana, salt-baked poussin, and hake with sobrassada sauce.

So get ready to place Morchella on your reservation radar. With its exceptional food, fabulous grapes, and a vibe that screams vibrancy, it's bound to be an unforgettable dining experience.
