It was off to Pizza Express in Greek Street last night, having been invited to their launch event for the new menu.
Red carpet was rolled out for the event and tables moved out of the way, so I can’t judge what the venue is normally like. But it certainly seemed long and thin when crammed with people trying to get a taste of the new menu as waiters buzzed back and forth holding plates high in the air as if they were operating a pizza air lift to get slices to the far corners of the room.
Verdict on the new menu from Francesco Mazzei?
Yummy (Mia Sofia):
Extremely hot (Calbrese):
The two new starters – Insalata Semplice and Tricolore – were both also very tasty and the evening was rounded off (if we pass quickly over the incident involving a certain other Pizza Express fan) with a nicely done gift bag.
Also met the pair behind the Rambling Restaurant at the event. Lovely idea and really nice and knowledgeable people. Well worth a look.
That’s five down, 123 to go.
