Maremma

BEST NEW BISTRO

Maremma

SHORTLISTED BY BISTRONAUT #6

WHO
The three musketeers: Dickie Bielenberg, a restaurateur with a pronounced love for Maremma (a region in Tuscany), executive chef Alice Staple and head chef Dominique Goltinger.

FOOD
One large spiralled polpo tentacle plated over an aromatic fava bean mousse – £1.50
Handmade tortellini filled with ricotta and basil served with olive oil and lemon zest – £2.50
Squid ink risotto, for the love of al dente – £7
Hearty tagliatelle with dried fish roe shavings called bottarga. A rare find outside of Italy – £6
Warm hazelnut and chocolate tart with a scoop of mascarpone (definitely meant to be shared) – £7

DRINKS
A small but interesting wine list focused around Tuscany and Maremma. Time to try something new. Ask for recommendations!
Peach fizz, but you can rest assured it’s in a different league from the mushy Bellini puree you might be expecting – £8.25

Phylika Poggio Rosso, 2018 – £6 by the glass

La Fralluca Bauci, 2016, which is surprisingly tasty for a Viognier – £6.50 by the glass

DECOR
Furniture that’s reminiscent of a mid-century aesthetic, and partially exposed concrete walls with washed blobs of colour. Everything is nicely put together and well taken care of. We overheard that plants in terracotta pots are in the works.

NOISE
Vivid sounds of life in Brixton as people mingle, dine, meet, greet, laugh and leave, only to come back later.

SEATING
Upstairs or downstairs, both inside.

VIBE
Lots of coming and going, total relaxation for those who have reserved.

SERVICE
Kind and curious, overjoyed to give recommendations.

WOULD RECOMMEND
To lost culinary souls who have been trying to find that one good Italian spot amongst London’s many new mediocre pasta-focused restaurants.
