Bright

So long Ellory, welcome to Bright! In this light-drenched modern ground floor next to Netil House, the explosive P.Franco team has rustled up one of the most exciting spots. Under the graphic posters of past residences, sit down in the celadon, cork and blond wood decor to savour the very “now” cuisine of William Gleave and Giuseppe Belvedere.

Mop it all until the last drop: crazy good chicken, crab and egg broth, Roman-style; linguine with cuttlefish ragu –Mamma mia!-; crunchy asparagus jazzed up with anchovies and nuts; a plump turbot with a vibrant salmoriglio sauce… Make them sing along the extensive 100% terroir wine list, for a drink or for the night, and end up with this crazy citrus, jasmine and olive oil palate-awakener.
