A new neighbourhood Italian-inspired restaurant, Sorella (meaning sister), from the group behind The Dairy and Counter Culture, has opened today in London's Clapham.
The team - Robin and Sarah Gill, Daniel Joines, Dean Parker - offer a menu that takes a traditional format; cicchetti, antipasti, primi, secondi and dolci but is also hugely influenced by the produce arriving in from their farm.
Starters include Crab linguine, fennel & chilli and Tagliatelle with pork & nduja ragù, followed by main plates of Roasted pollock, roe & chard, and Yorkshire venison & charred onions, as well as a range of antipasti options, like Goats curd, kale & tomato pizzetta.
Robin Gill's years spent working on the Amalfi coast, learning about a seasonal approach, has shaped the family of restaurants and therefore, at Sorella, the team has honed in on all that they love about the Italian attitude to cooking and eating.
Head chef and co-owner, Dean Parker's produce-led obsession, along with his time spent in Italy's kitchens, place him firmly at the helm.
For beverages, there is a selection of coctails like Quince Bellini - Quince purée & prosecco, and Manhattan to Clapham - Bourbon, vermouth, Maraschino & bitters.
