Polpetto, little sibling of the deliciously popular POLPO, will open on 23rd August 2010, located in Soho, above The French House on Dean Street. You can sample the food with 50% off your bill on Friday 20th & Sat 21st on their soft opening nights.

Described by co-owner Russell Norman as “a tiny jewel-box version of POLPO” Polpetto has just 28 seats and occupies a sympathetically redesigned dining room above one of Soho’s most iconic pubs. Salvaged 19th Century French light fittings and handmade zinc tables by Soho artisan metalworker Bela Pasztor will adorn the room along with mirrors crafted from reclaimed church windows.

Featuring a few POLPO favourites including cuttlefish in its ink, fritto misto and pizzetta bianca there will also be new dishes such as Venetian-style soft-shell crab in Parmesan batter and pigeon saltimbocca.  The wine list features northern Italian wines from small producers.

Russell Norman explains: “We were expecting to open Spuntino next month, also in Soho, but the project has been delayed.  The opportunity for Polpetto came along unexpectedly and we jumped at the chance to take on this legendary venue.  It sounds odd, but we are opening our third restaurant before our second.” Spuntino is scheduled for an October 2010 opening.

Upstairs at The French House
49 Dean Street
London W1D 5BG

Opening hours: Mon to Sat: 12pm to 3pm and 5.30pm to 11pm. Closed Sunday.
