The move of street food vendors to more permanent locations (see MEATliquor and Pitt Cue Co) continues with news that Homeslice Pizza is setting up shop in Covent Garden. Their chef Ry Jessup has teamed up with business partner Mark Wogan (son of Terry) to open a 50-seat restaurant in Neal's Yard. “We are keeping it simple,” says Ry. “Mark really understands what Homeslice is all about.”
Most recently spotted down at The Filling Station in King's Cross, the new Homeslice will make things very simple indeed - with pretty much everything priced at £4 from a slice of pizza to a pint to a glass of wine. A whole pizza costs £20 for 20 inches and there'll also be Prosecco on tap as well as double magnums of house wine with a measuring stick on the tables for customers to help themselves and only pay for what they drink.
Every day Homeslice will have five selections on offer - with Margherita being the only constant. Others might include artichoke and courgette with fresh lemon and parsley or bone marrow, fire roasted spring onion and watercress - check their Twitter feed @homesliceLDN for the day's pizzas. Pizzas can also be ordered for takeaway by the slice or whole.
Homeslice will be open from April 8 at Neal's Yard - Monday to Saturday noon till 11pm, Sunday noon till 6pm.
