Polpo to open in Bristol

Italian-influenced London restaurant group Polpo is to open a new site in Bristol this summer.

The restaurant will open in August 2016 on Bristol's Whiteladies Road. Following on from the traditions of its sister restaurants in London, Brighton and Leeds, it will be styled on a bacaro - a Venetian restaurant serving simple food and good, young northern Italian wines.

The restaurant will serve small plates including fried stuffed olives, arancini and chopped chicken liver crostini, as well as fritto misto, pizzetta bianca, spicy pork and fennel meatballs, and sliced flank steak. The dessert list features affogato al caffe, gelato cones, flourless chocolate and hazelnut cake and tiramisu pots.

It will open its doors earlier on weekends for brunch, offering poached eggs and scafata (a spring dish from Umbria); brunch pizzetta with Italian sausage, wild mushroom, Parmesan and a soft egg; and frittole - sweet ricotta doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar.

The site will feature Polpo's trademark deep red leather banquettes alongside old chemistry lab tables, bentwood chairs and antique maps of Venice.
