Polpo (Smithfield) 2-3 Cowcross Street, Smithfield, London
Russell Norman’s Bàcaro Empire Expands East
East Londoners rejoice! With two popular Polpo venues in the West End, Russell Norman has now opened a third, but this time next to Smithfield meat market. Speaking to him after the lunchtime rush on opening day he confirmed this wasn’t a co-incidence “we’d been looking for somewhere east of Soho”.
Polpo is a bàcaro, described as “humble restaurant serving simple food and good, young local wines”. . The pictures below focus on these awesome little plates. Great simple ‘food-done-well’
