Bocconcino, latest Russian-backed restaurant set to hit London’s most affluent environs, will open in Berkeley Square next month. Those who fancy a slice of authentic Italian pizza (via Moscow) can get 30% off food from 1 December until the end of January – quite an extensive soft launch period.
The 127-cover operation is restaurateur Mikhail Gokhner’s first international outpost, to add to the five he already has in Moscow. The site is split over two floors, with a ground floor restaurant and basement bar. Dishes include wood fired pizzas, linguine with cuttlefish and squid ink and calzone. The wine list will be exclusively Italian.
Bocconcino is the latest in a string of Russian-owned restaurants to open in W1, which include Novikov, Goodman, Rextail, Burger & Lobster and, most recently, Quattro Passi.
