Pop-up Restaurant at Frontline: 25th April now confirmed

Great news! Charlotte, Cesare, Rohan and I are going to be hosting our first pop-up restaurant at Frontline in Paddington on 25th April. 

The idea is to create a typical Potentino lunch and dinner even if we aren't sitting under the loggia looking up at Monte Amiata with Coco and Messy playing in the courtyard or sitting by the fire in the kitchen playing Scopa...

All our ingredients will come from Monte Amiata or from Frontline's Farm in Norfolk. Since we can't be sure what will look good in the market, we have put together a few sample menus to whet your appetite.

Lunch Sitting 1-12:00 for 12:30pm ONLY 8 PLACES LEFT £20 

Lunch Sitting 2- 2:30 for 3:00pm £20 NOW SOLD OUT
A plate of crostini with walnut pesto, tomato and mentuccia, garlic and olive oil 

Charlotte's famous spaghetti with bottarga, zucchini and flowers
Seggiano pecorino and chestnut honey
Fresh ricotta and chestnut puree

Dinner (one sitting, 7:30 for 8pm) £20 NOW SOLD OUT
Farinata di ceci
Fabbio's Italian pork sausages in wine and Fave e foglie (broad bean puree and bitter greens sauteed with garlic and chilli)
Seggiano pecorino and chestnut honey
Cesare's Tiramisu 

Coffee and water are included.

Wine can be purchased by the glass, bottle or case!

We will have some of the new season olive oil as well.

Charlotte has posted about our new and very exciting white wine- Lyncurio. This will be the very first opportunity to taste it.

Opening Hours
The bar will be open all day from 11:30am-10:30pm.

I hope that this will become a monthly event- but as this is a soft launch, we would like to get an idea of numbers so that we have one fewer thing to worry about. Please book by posting a comment below with your name and time you want to eat and number of people you will be.

Film Screening
Frontline will be holding a screening at 4pm of Live from Bethlehem. You are more than welcome to come for lunch and then stay on for the screening and come back for an early supper afterwards! If you would like to book a ticket to the screening please click here.

Getting There
The Frontline Club is in 13 Norfolk Place, Paddington, W2 1QJ.
The building is on the corner of Norfolk Place and St. Michael's Street. Norfolk Place runs between Sussex Gardens and Praed Street and is just opposite the entrance to St. Mary's Hospital.
Closest Tube Station: Paddington

The Potentino Pop-up will be in the Clubroom on the 1st floor.

sorry - hadn't seen that homa and david had already said they were coming. To avoid double counting, my 8 for dinner already includes H + D (as well as eleanor, anthony, me, arthur, lorenzo and minty). Also, just to let you know, eleanor isn't able to eat gluten - hope that doesn't create too many problems, xx
