Florence Knight is Back

You know my last name is Costanza. That's Italian, so you and I are like country men Pisano's
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Calzone”)

Probably one of the most anticipated openings or in this case re-opening was Polpetto. Yes Russell Norman and Richard Beatty little sister of Polpo. So finally I had the chance to give them a visit. Bigger than the original place, with 60 seats, eating bar, open kitchen, chef‘s table, and a menu under the control of chef Florence Knight.

The bar
We got a good selection from their menu, including and amazing Burrata with the agretti and chilli. Then we got scallops perfectly cooked in a cauliflower puree and with lardo to give some saltiness to the dish, really lovely. Then a beef shin ragu pasta that was impeccable, this was the highlight of the day, rustic, home made style, the perfect comfort food, beef tender, flavour spot on, and pasta al dente. Finally we got some chicken oysters, nicely done, good balance and crispiness in the dish.

The food was flawless, nice flavours and unpretentious. Definitely coming back!
