Top notch traditional food is promised
Fiume - the Italian word for river - is about to open its doors on the bank of the River Thames in Battersea Power Station’s Circus West Village.
The new Italian restaurant comes from Chef Francesco Mazzei (Anda Marylebone, Hakkasan, Franco's Jermyn Street) and D&D London (Le Pont de la Tour, Bluebird, Coq d'Argent).
With stunning views of the Thames and a large Mediterranean piazza-style terrace to enjoy them from, the restaurant is promising to be the perfect setting for tucking into rustic southern Italian recipes and aperitivos. Inspired by the traditional food of Francesco Mazzei’s homeland, the Mezzorgiono, the restaurant will serve wholesome, hearty recipes made with fresh, vibrant ingredients from the Med.
Francesco (above right) will oversee Fiume as Chef Patron, while Head Chef Francesco Chiarelli (above left) will look after the day-to-day running. These two have more than a name in common— as well as previously working together at central London eateries Sartoria and L’Anima, they’re also from the same region of southern Italy.
All the way from southern Italy to southern London, they are aiming for their cooking to become the finest Italian food to feast on south of the river!
Fiume officially opens on Friday 17th November. You can book a table here.
