"Farm-to-table", "Locally sourced fresh ingredients", "100% Homemade"... those were big, attractive slogans that many restaurants use to promote their food these days, but Linguini Fini is one of the few in town that truly practice what they are preaching day in, day out with much success commercially.
On the last day of the Easter long weekend, the restaurant invited our group in for a dinner tasting. Since last year the place has moved to a new venue in Soho after moving out of their original location on Queen's Road Central and this is the first time I had the opportunity to try out their full menu at this location, having been here mainly for drinks and snacks a couple of times before.
The settings of the restaurant resembled what they used to be, featuring industrial-chic decor and lighting, a long bar in the middle, and comfortable space apart between each table spreading across the dining area. The music is loud but not overbearingly so, adding to the lively, laid-back atmosphere.
