Five Restaurants to Try This Weekend
When a wood-fired Neapolitan pizza started being served in an arts space off Broad Lane on an industrial estate reminiscent of the early days of the Williamsburg scene in Brooklyn, NYC, there was a sense that Tottenham was changing for the better. It even has a speakeasy-esque entrance, with access gained by pressing the buzzer of a heavy metal door (after dodging the bins lined up close-by) and heading up the stairs.
A custom-made Neapolitan pizza oven dominates the room, with co-owners Kate Allison and pizzaiolo Fabrizio Interdonato (previous gigs at Princi and L’Antica Pizzeria in Hampstead) running the show — the pizzas being slung out are excellent, whether it’s the margherita D.O.P. for the purists; yellow tomato and ‘nduja; or sausage and burrata with ricotta and black olives. —Zeren Wilson
