Polpetto   11 Berwick, Soho, London

The Venetian style bacaro relocated from Dean Street to larger premises in Soho overseen by Russell Norman.

The decor is minimalistic, part rustic and industrial. Finding that chicken wired glass didn't seem to be available in this country we experimented with laminating chicken wire in a horizontal arrangement as an interlayer between two clear sheets of glass. It worked. Chef Florence Knight is framed in action as around a kitchen stage.
