  • Visitor Information

Augustus Harris opens late October 2013.

Keeping good company on Catherine Street, Augustus Harris is just down the road from Mishkins and Salt Yard Group's Opera Tavern. A tiny Italian restaurant with room for just 35 covers spread across two floors, Augustus Harris takes its inspiration from the bacari of Venice and takes its name from the manager of the Drury Lane Theatre from 1879 until 1896. During the day, they sell wine, olive oil and other Italian produce. By night, they serve cicheti, salumi, crostini, spritz and Italian wine. If Augustus Harris takes after its namesake - considered the father of modern Pantomine - there'll be much indulging in good food and drink. Augustus, whose bust can be seen on the corner of Catherine Street and Russell Street, was known as one of the great bons vivants of his time.
