It has been announced that Damian Monley’s latest restaurant will celebrate its opening next month by offering earlybirds the chance to dine for half price when it soft launches from the 2nd to the 9th September.
The new restaurant based in Belgravia is chef Damien Monley’s first foray into the British market, after his success with several high-profile food and drink business in Australia, including the influential all-day Flat White Cafe in Sydney’s upmarket Woollahra.
LIV Restaurant will offer a new approach to all-day dining, initially offering breakfast, brunch and lunch menus alongside artisanal coffee and fresh, cold-pressed juices. A dinner menu will be added later this year.
The interiors of the restaurant are fitted out in crisp white and neutrals, with plenty of fresh flowers, linen and wicker, and a contemporary art collection featuring artists such as Henry Moore and Alexander Calder.
Meanwhile, the menu will feature a light breakfast of slow-cooked chai-spiced oats with amaranth, bananas, pecans, seeds, yoghurt and palm sugar or a heartier king prawn omelette with basil, Asian slaw, sweet soy, ginger shallot and sriracha. Meanwhile, the lunch menu includes a classic brunch-style rainbow bowl including avocado, edamame, beetroot, feta and sprouts, a crispy pork sandwich, a Thai coconut-poached chicken salad, or even a meltingly tender 17-hour Wagyu brisket. There is also a menu suitable for children which includes a mini grass-fed cheeseburger and pasta pomodoro.
Elsewhere, you can select from a global wine list, speciality coffees or for those with more time to relax , all-day cocktails might continue the Italian theme with a negroni sbagliato, Aperol Spritz, or a simple mimosa.
Talking about the news, Executive Chef, Damien Monley says: “The whole team at LIV are super excited about the upcoming opening. Our aim is to create a really special neighbourhood restaurant that showcases amazing produce, delivered with warm, friendly service in a beautiful and comforting setting. Having the opportunity to showcase my version of casual dining to the London market is truly inspiring and I’m absolutely pumped.”
