Polpo SmithfieldSince launching the original Polpo in Soho's Beak Street in October 2009, Russell Norman and business partner Richard Beatty have expanded the brand at breakneck speed. With Polpo Smithfield, their sixth London restaurant (and the first outside Soho) launched in 2012, they have created a mini chain under the Polpo name - including Polpo Covent Garden and Polpo Notting Hill. All four offer the same Venetian style menu as the Soho restaurant, with mini pizzas and meatballs some of the signature dishes. Additionally, all Polpo restaurants now serve brunch, offering diners an Italian twist on the growing London trend. Feast on wild garlic, mushrooms and ricotta on toasted sourdough; soft poached egg and scafata; smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; and ricotta doughnuts with cinnamon sugar. This Smithfield branch has 70 seats in the main dining area, seating for 20 outside, and a Negroni Bar in the basement.
