Polpo Covent GardenFollowing the huge success of his original Polpo on Beak Street, restaurateur Russell Norman has set up a mini chain with a number of other Polpos popping up around town. Two years after the first Polpo brought a little piece of Venice to London in September 2009, Polpo Covent Garden opened on Maiden Lane. Originally Da Polpo, this second site is "small and cavernous with just a touch of speakeasy", says Tatler magazine. Situated next to the Vaudeville Theatre's stage door, "it's something of a luvvie favourite". With room for 70 diners, there's a meatball section on the menu which includes arancini, mini pizzas and fried fish accompanied by good, young local wines and Italian cocktails served in Duralex glasses. All the Polpo branches also started offering brunch in 2016, serving up a brunch pizzetta, poached eggs on scafata, and cinnamon and ricotta doughnuts alongside strong coffee, breakfast bellinis and bloody Marys. For more visit Polpo Smithfield, Polpo Notting Hill or Polpo Chelsea, which is the perfect option if you're looking for al fresco dining.
