Located in the former premises of Como Lario restaurant, LIV occupies one of Belgravia’s best loved addresses, just a short walk from Sloane Square.
Since it opened in September, LIV has created a true neighborhood hub for residents of Belgravia, Chelsea and over the bridge in Battersea, providing a relaxed environment and a refreshing antidote to the national franchises that dominate the area’s casual dining scene. Giving the area a much-needed boost of boutique, LIV is now offering an evening menu alongside its strong breakfast and lunch offering.
Launching on November 6th, the evening menu will consist of a generous style of cooking and making the most of the best local ingredients and inspired by a healthy bias. To add to this, from 6th – 13th November LIV are offering 50% off breakfast and Lunch bookings. Dinner bookings will receive a free bottle of wine.
On the plate, seasonally changing menus showcase much-loved classics alongside LIV twists, great British produce and ingredient combinations that harmonize global flavors, whether it’s a light breakfast or a more substantial lunch. The evening menu will follow the same simple rules providing high-quality dining at a fraction of the usual prices. The menu itself will consist of Strozzapretti with king prawns, calamari, olives, chilli tomato & parsley alongside steamed sea bass, ginger, shallot & soy, brown rice, Asian greens plus more. Sides will include Salt & Pepper Crisp Chicken with sweet soy mayo and hot sauce with veggie options including Red Lentil Fritters with pea hummus, herb yogurt, baby spinach, sprout & herb salad with more on the menu.
LIV Restaurant Belgravia (London)
Executive Chef, Damien Monley says: “The whole team at Liv is super excited about opening for nights. The site itself ( the old Como Lario) has a long history as a restaurant since 1968 and we can’t wait to bring it back to life in the evening. We have got to know a lot of local customers during the last few months and we have listened to what they would like to see on a menu and have incorporated this feedback. We have tested every new recipe and brought in some old school classics also and we can’t wait to get the doors open and re-establishing Liv as a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant that exceeds expectations with delicious comfort food, wonderful wines and warm friendly service.”
The interiors of LIV are fitted out in crisp white and neutrals, with plenty of fresh flowers, linen and wicker, and a contemporary art collection featuring artists such as Henry Moore and Alexander Calder.
LIV also welcomes a light breakfast of slow-cooked chai-spiced oats with amaranth, bananas, pecans, seeds, yogurt and palm sugar or a heartier king prawn omelette with basil, Asian slaw, sweet soy, ginger shallot and sriracha. Not forgetting Damien’s legendary ricotta hotcakes with cinnamon butter, berries, seeds and organic maple. Keeping things loose means that lunch could be a classic brunch-style rainbow bowl including avocado, edamame, beetroot, feta and sprouts, a crispy pork sandwich, a Thai coconut-poached chicken salad, or even a meltingly tender 17-hour Wagyu brisket. Kids can also graze off their own menu, with accessible options including a mini grass-fed cheeseburger and pasta Pomodoro.

Complementing the food is a global wine list hand-picked to bring out the flavors in every dish. Specialty coffees, meanwhile, will include a single-roast from a 100-year-old Neapolitan supplier, delivered weekly and overseen by LIV’s in-house Italian coffee expert, and regular guest roasts from artisan brands such as Alchemy and Origin – so locals have somewhere to stop in for a professionally pulled latte each day. For those with more time to relax, all-day cocktails might continue the Italian theme with a Negroni Sbagliato, Aperol Spritz, or a simple mimosa.
