Manicomio turn 20! We caught up with the founder on her Chelsea favourites and inspiration
We’re still clinging onto summer and are thrilled that the sun is back. Here are the best al fresco spots to make the most of your King’s Road Privilege Card to enjoy whilst it lasts.
Enjoy bright and colourful Lebanese dishes overlooking the buzzy Duke of York Square piazza at Comptoir Libanais. King’s Road Privilege Card holders will receive a complimentary Baklawa and fresh rose mint tea with any main course – the large salads have summer splashed all over them and are perfectly accompanied by one of their refreshingly cool homemade lemonades. We love the Roomana flavour, a blend of pomegranate and orange blossom.

Pack up a picnic and spread out on the Green opposite the Saatchi Gallery. Grab the goods from Partridges and when Privilege Card members spend £50 or more, they can enjoy an extra 10% off. So yes, definitely pop that bottle of Rose in the basket!

Inspired by the traditional bacaris of Venice, Aperitivo Hour at POLPO is the place for an afternoon tipple when you need to escape the heat. Members can enjoy two Spritz – choosing from Aperol or Campari – and a board of Cicheti, Venetian snacks, to share for just £20. Sat underneath the big brollies, a calm corner amidst the hustle and bustle of the Square, al fresco at POLPO is the place to be whilst summer is still here.

If the sun is still shining throughout the week, head to The Black Penny for 15% off food and drink from Monday to Thursdays. An all day Brunch menu means French Toast for lunch is a thing, whilst their All Day Buns are known to sell-out for their popularity, the Crispy Duck Bun being the best of a brilliant bunch.

With outdoor tables and chairs sweeping the exterior of the restaurant, and walls that have the ability to sink into the ground (bringing the outside in, the interiors trend we all work hard to achieve), Vardo has a heatwave covered. Choose from a small plates or main dishes inspired by flavours from across the globe, and enjoy a tipple in the heart of the action. Whilst only available from Monday to Friday, King’s Road Privilege Card members receive 10% off food and drink which makes the end of summer that bit sweeter.
