Murano is in Mayfair and it wasn't hard to find. With advance reservations made before we left for London and a map in arm, it was easy. We walked through the alleys of Shepherd Market which by the way is a lovely pedestrian-only area with boutiques, restaurants, and pubs, and then landed ourselves on Queen Street where the restaurant is located. Murano's elegant decor and ambience was well suited with its fine dining cuisine. Service was professional throughout and the noise level of the restaurant was low. The lunch crowd was a mixed of people in working professional attire who were probably there for a business lunch and there were also people like us who dined with our significant others.
We ordered a glass of wine to go with our 3-course prix-fixe. To start every table was given a platter of cured meats and a basket of assorted bread and crackers. The thinly sliced meats were a perfect way to start lunch.
