G. is in town this week, so we’ve been going on a spree of restaurant and pub-going. He sought out this smart little spot on Bermondsey Street in SE1, south and east of the Thames river. Zucca features modern Italian cuisine in a somewhat trendy atmosphere. There weren’t many tables, which gave the room a cosy and comfortable feel, and the lighting was just right. The immaculate kitchen was open and faced the dining room, which I always love. G. went for simple but tasty cod, and I went for corda ragu — a spicy bolognese with perfectly al dente pasta.
Bermondsey is quite a trek from Fulham, so we probably won’t be back any time soon, although it is always fun to explore a new area of town.
