Russell Norman and Richard Beatty, who opened Polpo in Beak Street in October 2009, have announced the opening of their fourth restaurant, da Polpo, scheduled to open in June 2011. da Polpo follows the success of Polpetto, which opened in August 2010, and the recent addition, Spuntino, which opened in March 2011.
The menu will feature a meatball section and an expanded pizzetta offering as well as a selection of favourite dishes from Polpo and Polpetto. The wine list will be exclusively Italian and will feature the own-label Polpo house wines from Friuli and the Polpo House Prosecco.
da Polpo will have 70 covers over two levels, including two dining bars. On the lower ground there will be an Aperol Bar, serving the signature Venetian Spritz as well as the full da Polpo menu. In addition to the usual tables of two and four, the restaurant will be able to accommodate groups of six and will have a feature table for ten.
da Polpo will open on 2 June 2011.
