REVIEW

There are few decisions to make at LuMi. No need to deliberate over tables – the glass walls and modernist box layout means every vantage eyes the marina. Your wine choice can be safely handed to somm Michela Boncagni (wife of chef Federico Zanellato). And when it comes to choosing between the dég with snacks or without, go the snacks. These bites are harbingers of the finesse to come, none more so than the tomato water with dehydrated strawberries. The cacio e pepe agnolotti – spelt-flour parcels bursting with liquefied pecorino Romano – sing with technique and tastiness, as does passionfruit panna cotta with black-olive crumb. Lime kosho brightens up wagyu roasted for 24 hours, kombu mayo ups the umami in a spot-prawn crudo, and sake sits alongside skin-contact wine. LuMi is not so much a rule-breaker as proof of how far our collective palates have come.
