Review on Polpo Chelsea
The Polpo concept by restaurateurs Russell Norman and Richard Beatty showcasing a humble Venetian restaurant serving simple food, have set up camp in the heart of Chelsea. Occupying a Georgian building on upmarket Duke of York Square, the restaurant is just a short stroll from Sloane Square Tube Station. Like its siblings the interior is rustic with exposed brick walls, old chemistry lab benches serving as tables and its trademark tin roof.
The menu features a series of small plates designed for sharing, with the kitchen employing high-quality ingredients for seasonal cuisine with a thumping Italian pulse. Menus are printed on plain brown paper divided into Cicheti, Meatballs, Meat & Fish, Pizzette, Vegetables and Salads and Desserts, with daily specials appearing the the blackboard.
A lively laid-back vibe there's a concise wine list of Italian wines together with a selection of cocktails. When the weather is warm guests can take advantage of their lovely terrace for al fresco drinking and dining.
