Popolo Not to be confused with the similarly named Polpo, which seem to be popping up all over the place, Popolo in Shoreditch is an independent from Jon Lawson, former chef at Theo Randall, and Munur Shah. Despite jumping on the exposed brickwork and industrial decor bandwagon, the food sets this restaurant apart. Offering 'a taste of Italy and beyond', the menu also takes influences from Spain, Mexico and the Middle East and consists of tapas style sharing plates such as pappardelle hare ragu ; risotto marinara with tiger prawns, clams and mussels; ravioli with sheep ricotta and sage butter; and chicken liver bruschetta . With Popolo meaning 'people' in Italian, it's the perfect spot to stop by and enjoy some sharing plates, which are perfectly timed and reasonably priced, with friends.
