Square Meal Review of Bibo ?

Rustic Italian is the theme at Bibo – a new eatery devised by busy restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas (Sonny’s, Kitchen W8 etc) and Chris Beverley (one-time chef at Theo Randall at The InterContinental). The long, painted-brick dining room sets an unfussy tone with its bentwood chairs and plain wooden tables, allowing the food to steal the limelight. Our hearty, ham-based pasta and chickpea soup was comforting in the extreme, while slow-cooked, sage-flavoured pork belly was neatly offset by braised fennel and a sweet/sharp hit from datterini tomatoes. Fish dishes are equally self-assured – whole roast plaice with lentils, spinach, anchovy, capers and lemon needs a steady chef to get it right. There’s also plenty of attention to detail – from big napkins and carafes of free water to the well-researched, all-Italian wine list. In short, a celebration of generous, earthy goodness for Putney locals.

    The Cutlery Chronicles :: bibo, putney - review

    Upper Richmond Road is as uninspiring a high-street as most in London. But nestled in the bosom of a Nando’s, Pizza Express and Dominos that flank either side, Bibo and its interiors have a transportational quality that plucks you out of SW15 and plants you straight into a Soho dining-hotspot. It looks great - airy, high-ceilinged, white-washed exposed brick, dark wood, leather banquettes, a mezzanine at the rear, and an impressive bar upon entry. Once you’re in, you’ll be in no hurry to leave...
