This just opened 3 days ago on old Hotel Elrphant site on Newington Causeway
Came down today and it is amazing!. Great canteen with fresh cooked pizzas cheeses hams ice creams and a bar. Great italian food can eat outside or in. Really lovely
The Deli shop is stacked to the rafters with foods and drinks. What a great new venue for the area!
Seems to be a soft launch in that their website, Facebook and Instagram have not yet been updated with information about the new London market, only the established one on Turin. Their Twitter feed does now quote an English website with some information:
Popped down this evening.
Good luck to them, if they get the trade it'll be a good thing.
Nice glass of wine and some cheesey-meaty snacks.
Bakery, fresh pasta, bar, supermarket, deli, ice cream, smiley staff...
We went yesterday and loved it. Apparently there's a grand opening event on 15th September, by which time another part of it will be open with more prepared food including an American barbecue. They're also opening a cinema and gym on the site. Really hope it works, it's a fantastic addition to the area...an area which is apparently now known as SoBo, as in South of Borough, according to the marketing literature!
Oh god i love it. Lovely vibe, sat outside eating really good pasta in sage and butter with a very decent pint. The deli is a treat. Laid back, happy, yummy. *goes online to buy a bigger pair of jeans*
Also went last night, surprised that quite a few people seem to know this place already.
There was a queue for the pasta and the lady taking orders was more interested in chatting that taking orders so we gave it a pass. Tried the yummy ice cream instead, 2 lovely chaps making us try every flavour on offer. Also bought some Italian sheep cheese which was much cheaper than at Borough market.
Early days, they still need to have more stands installed but I can easily see it be very busy at weekends and sunny evenings. Where they got it right is to provide lots of seating which is sorely missing at Borough market. Just hope neighbours won't complain about the noise once it proves super popular.
