// OPENING //
Stepping into Sucre, the new Latin American restaurant on Fantastic Marlborough Avenue in Soho, is infinitely uplifting. Opened by Chef Fernando Trocca (who introduced the unique in Buenos Aires in 2001), the new London outpost is found in the previous London College of Audio live performance corridor, a space of soaring ceilings, artfully light grandeur, industrial touches and substantial, glistening chandeliers designed from much more than a thousand lower-glass decanters. Miraculously, it is full and buzzing on an early Tuesday night, with joyful, smartly dressed people sipping the property sangria (delightful) and buying plates from a neat menu that throws old-environment flavours and modern finesse on to a significant Latin American open fire. The wooden-fired shrimp presents a heartening flavor of much more reliably temperate climes, and there are plenty of huge, meaty selections here. But the greens seriously glow, especially a delicately assembled mound of tender burnt aubergine topped with a zingy lemon and herb salad. The black fideuà (a variety of macaroni-like pasta) with squid and paprika is evidently the strike dish so significantly below, and its salty richness and Instagrammable aesthetic is complicated to resist. Downstairs, Trocca’s friend and lover Tato Giovannoni has opened Abajo, a moody, pretty cocktail bar primarily based all-around the colours and appears of 1980s underground Buenos Aires. A interesting and comforting Soho newcomer. Sucre
