Polpo opening in Notting Hill

imgresGreat news for foodies is that mega-gold star reviewed Polpo is setting up in Notting Hill Gate at the old All Bar One site. Polpo is a bàcaro, a Venetian word which means a humble restaurant serving simple food and good, young local wines. The first Polpo was set up by ex-Caprice chief Russell Norman and chef Tom Oldroyd in 2009 in Beak Street, the Venetian menu and restrained price combo has been a hit. The opening date for our Notting Hill Polpo is set for the end of May, but right now the site is still full of dust and hard hats. The new head chef hasn’t been decided yet but the kitchen will be headed up by Polpo’s executive chef Oldroyd, who looks after Polpo as a group.  Polpo has received the Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand for the last three consecutive years and was awarded 2 Rosettes in the AA Guide for Culinary Excellence 2012-2013. Can’t wait. www.polpo
