Homeslice Pizza lands in Covent Garden
News has just landed that the original creator of the awesome Homeslice Pizza business (see my page on the street food stalls here) has, like others before him including Lucky Chip and Pitt Cue Co, decided to venture into bricks and mortar.
Chef Ry Jessup and his business partner Mark Wogan have teamed up to launch a 50-seat restaurant, Homeslice, opening in Covent Garden in March 2013.
Ry’s pizzas – which are excellent in my experience – will be cooked in a bespoke wood fired oven in an open kitchen, priced at £4/slice, £20/20-inchers. Five selections will be offered daily with combinations including artichoke and courgette with fresh lemon and parsley or bone marrow, fire roasted spring onion and watercress.
There will also be British beer (£4/pint) and Prosecco on tap plus house wines with measuring sticks on the tables for customers to help themselves and only pay for what they drink (£4 per glass).
Homeslice will be open Monday to Saturday noon till 11pm, Sunday noon till 6pm. Follow the Twitter feed @homesliceLDN for daily news and menu options. I don’t know yet whether this means the end of the market stalls, but I shall keep you posted…
