Squaremeal Review of Polpetto ?

Chef Florence Knight was the breakout star of Russell Norman’s Polpo group, but she has now moved on from Polpetto to make way for a new head chef. Knight was at the helm as Polpetto relocated from a room above the French House pub to this standalone premises, and introduced a short menu which included the likes of cavolo nero and croutons, or scallops with cauliflower purée and lardo. Quirkier ideas included pickled parsley root and wet polenta but now, the menu is returning to its roots with Venetian-influenced small plates – the Polpo trademark. Anchovy and chickpea crostinis sit alongside spicy meatball pizzettas, rabbit pappardelle and zucchini fries on the menu, while the narrow, gently lit dining room is full of charm.

    Musings from the girl next shore :: The Girl Next Shore: Polpetto (Berwick St): where simple does stunning

    With a lot of new concept restaurants opening (and closing) every ten minutes it's important to note that Russell Norman's Polpo bacaros have been established players in the London dining scene. The case of Polpetto (formerly of Dean Street) re-opening in a much larger space (Berwick St) and having punters still queue for fare should be a testament to that.

    So what's the formula?...
