In Italian, it translates to 'Snack'
A Soho Hidden Gem
Polpo's sister restaurant
Tucked away behind an unassuming entrance in the middle of Soho.
The inspiration was to bring a bar that served small-plates and strong cocktails in an Italian-American style from New York, back across the Atlantic.
You can’t make reservations and they don’t have a phone, is a testament to how popular it is as it gets very busy and we would be wise to get down there early to make sure you get in.
The website only mentions that the bar has, “27 stools and a popcorn machine”, what more do you need?
Our Top Picks
A Few Favourites
Another of our top tips would be to give the bar staff the chance to make you a cocktail, which is either concocted in front of you, through meticulous trial and error or based upon your favourite flavours.
- Any of the sliders, in particular, the beef and bone marrow or fried shrimp po’ boy
- Lobster mac n cheese
- Eggplant chips with fennel yoghurt
- Stuffed Olives
- Homemade chips with chicken salt, which is a game changer!
