Casa Cruz opens on Clarendon Road

Great news that restaurant Casa Cruz has finally opened at the corner of Clarendon Road where Notting Grill used to be. We are only allowed to show you the shiny copper door, but enter and you will find an even shinier modern brass and glass-filled interior. It is the brainchild of Juan Santa Cruz, a South American investment banker turned restauranteur who already has three Buenos Aires eateries. The idea is that you order a selection of dishes and then share them with whoever you are with. Plates of Charred beetroots with horseradish (£9.50) and raw wild bass with cucumber, lime and rapeseed oil (£12.50) are on offer for starters and then you move on to mouthwatering plates of roasted cod (£20) or blackened chicken (£24). There is a large selection of vegetables too, like spiced corn and basil (£8) and quinoa, grilled vegetables and seed (£7). It all seems fairly low-carb but don’t worry, there are puddings too. Perfect local hideaway for a delicious evening and there’s a roof terrace too. At the moment Casa Cruz is only open in the evenings Tuesday – Saturday, 7pm-12.30pm (last kitchen orders taken at 11.30pm). Closed Sunday and Monday.
