Enjoy some of the best contemporary cooking in London at this cosy Upper Street spot run by former Polpo chef-director, Tom Oldroyd.
The daily-changing menu features seasonal ingredients used sympathetically in dishes ranging from small snacks to larger mains. Pop in at lunchtime for a set menu, or pick from the a la carte options come evenings and weekends. If you visit on a Monday, you’ll find a wholly meat-free menu, where inventive vegetarian dishes take centre stage.
Before your meal, enjoy one of the handful of cocktails on offer, or opt for a selection from the small but reasonably priced wine list.

The new restaurant from the former Polpo/Polpetto head honcho!!!
