DSCN5923-1London has a great new pizza restaurant! Invited to the official opening last night of NY Fold in Charing Cross Road we met up with its creator and 6 times World Pizza Champion, Bruno Di Fabio.  “I’m bringing in a new style of pizza to London that is so successful in America” Bruno told us. “We’ve got three restaurants in San Francisco, others in LA, several in New York and  further ones around the USA. So what makes your pizzas different we asked: “We use simple ingredients. We use a secret pizza dough recipe from a two part fermentation process aged from a minimum of 48 hours. This makes an amazing crispy and airy like crust”. We use 60 day aged mozzarella and we’ve been getting incredible ingredients locally from Borough Market.”

DSCN5931-1We got to see the Juliet Pizza pictured above being made in the kitchen. Made with mozzarella, gorgonzola dolce, prosciutto crudo topped with balsamic glaze and fig jam a slice of this pizza is absolutely delicious! Pizzas come up 16 inch for £23 which is really enough to share and you can order pizzas here half and half. Alternatively, go the NY way and order by the slice and get to enjoy more flavours!

DSCN5932-1We tried a slice of The Fabio (£4.20) that had superb  spicy salami, green olives, mozzarella and lovely cherry tomatoes and also the Big Daddy a well composed pizza slice of fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic, white onion and lemon also at £4.20 that tasted lovely leaving us wanting more!

DSCN5928-1The décor is very casual, high stools at the front, tables towards the back. The informative menu has four starters, eleven pizzas, four pastas, four NY focaccia choices and four salads.  There’s a short wine menu. The house white was a reasonable chardonnay, and the house red very good value at £4.50 a glass. There’s a  good selection of draft beers and ales including Camden Hells, bottled beers, and cider as well as free soft drink refills! This is a great place and we look forward to returning to it again!
