Chef Nico Simeone said:
"Our teams have trawled through Roman recipe books to find a way to recreate dishes for the modern foodie. Let's not forget that the Romans were resourceful and inventive with their produce, with many of their dishes revealing the origins of Italian cuisine. Ancient Roman cuisine featured a diverse array of unusual dishes, strange food items, and unconventional cooking experiments, and we hope that our interpretation will allow our guests to enjoy the flavours and tastes of ancient Roman cuisine today".
