We are excited to announce that Polpo, the award-winning Venetian restaurant, opens the doors to their new Duke of York Square venue this Monday (18 May). Polpo describe themselves as a ‘bàcaro’ – a humble restaurant serving simple food and good, young local wines.
With the buzz on Duke of York Square reminiscent of the courtyard squares of Venice, Polpo will be right at home. This will be their fifth restaurant, after Beak Street (opened in September 2009), followed by Covent Garden, Smithfield and Notting Hill. Polpo has received the Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand for the last five consecutive years and was awarded 2 Rosettes in the AA Guide for Culinary Excellence 2013-2014.
This is what is people have said about it: “Polpo is the hottest table in town” – Marina O’Loughlin, METRO; “Brilliant” – Jay Rayner, The Observer; “This one’s a winner for sure” – David Sexton, Evening Standard; “It is inspiring when done this well’ – Rose Prince, Daily Telegraph; “One of the most exciting eateries to open in London” – Richard Vines, Bloomberg.
In line with government guidelines, our shops and restaurants remain open only for essential retail, virtual shopping appointments, takeaway food and click and collect services.
But our Christmas lights are sparkling, the Fine Food market will continue to take place on the running track each Saturday (with full safety measures in place) and many of our restaurants will deliver their delicious food to the comfort of your home.
