One of the capital’s most revered Italian restaurants will celebrate 25 years in business in April. Enoteca Turi, a fixture in our London guide since 1995, has been serving up “first-class regional cooking” plus “a massive selection of carefully chosen Italian wines” for a quarter of a century.
Its Putney Bridge-side location, while a little off the beaten track, has never dissuaded our reporters from a pilgrimage to enjoy Giuseppe and Pamela Turi’s “very accomplished” and “welcoming” venue. To help celebrate their 25 year milestone, the duo have just appointed a new head chef, Michele Blasi (formerly of the celebrated Sadler’s in Milan).
All the ingredients from the new menu (launching in April), like: barba di frate, cime di rape, catalogna chicory, radicchio, borlotti beans, plum and cherry tomatoes and olive oil are all variously sourced from Umbria, Tuscany or Campania and the cured meats such as prosciutto toscano and capocollo, come from specialist artisan butchers in Italy.
