Tom and Rich (the owners) were on a road trip across America and they stopped to re-fuel in Portland, Oregon. On the recommendation of a close friend they visited “this amazing local pizza place”, Dove Vivi. It was there they discovered a food sent from the heavens. Cornmeal crust pizza.

On returning from the trip Tom and Rich decided that working in an office should be avoided. But that eating great pizza should be encouraged.

They found a café close to Notting Hill that needed a bit of a re-paint. They went for some training in Portland. And then they took a punt, got some builders in and opened up, offering cornmeal crust pizza for the first time in the UK.

What does it taste like?

They use a cornmeal and flour mix in our pizza crust to give it a distinctive flavour and texture. The cornmeal makes their crusts stronger and more robust than a normal pizza, which allows us to be more creative (and generous) with their toppings.

Is it filling?

The cornmeal they use means that their pizza crusts are higher in fibre than normal, which makes them more filling. They also put far more topping on their pizzas, as they believe this gives them a much better flavour.

Check out the restaurant or website for further info and current specials. On Sunday 19th June the specials were Brie & Grape and Sausage & Sweetcorn.

Opening hours:

Monday to Friday 5:30 – 11pm

Gate Theatre, Notting Hill

Image and info from gatetheatre.co.uk

The Gate Theatre has a distinguished reputation that far exceeds its size. It is London’s only producing theatre dedicated to international work.  From humble beginnings it has developed a significant renown throughout London, as well as nationally and internationally.

In 1979 the Gate was founded by Lou Stein, over the Prince Albert pub, in Notting Hill Gate. It set about a unique pursuit of the original, of plays and playwrights unknown on British stages, and of artists whose talent deserved to be discovered.

With an average seating capacity of 70, the Gate is small but ambitious. The space has challenged and inspired directors, designers, writers and performers for over 30 years, making it famous for being one of the most flexible and transformable spaces in London. The Gate is a springboard – our aim is to give emerging artists the opportunity to take risks, to excel and to make their mark. We have been home to a variety of both established and emerging artists including Lez Brotherston, Kathy Burke, Dominic Cooke, Wolfgang Goebbel, Sir Peter Hall, Ed Hogg, Richard Hudson, Paterson Joseph, Sarah Kane, Alex Kingston, Jude Law, Nancy Meckler, Katie Mitchell, Sophie Okonedo, Emma Rice, Ian Rickson and Rachel Weisz.

Pizza East come West, Portobello West London

Updated 5th March ’14

 

After years of feeding Shoreditch, Pizza East has opened in west London. Moving into what used to be the Fat Badger pub on the corner of Portobello and Golborne Road, Pizza East Portobello is a restaurant, takeaway and deli spread over two floors. The interior has been stripped back to reveal the building’s original features with vintage furniture, exposed brickwork and distressed paneling throughout.

The ground floor is an open kitchen and dining area with full-length windows opening out onto the street. Upstairs is a more relaxed sitting room with a leafy terrace seating up to 20 people.

Food

All our pizzas are a 10” base made from the exclusive House recipe, while our fresh tomato sauce is specially prepared by the kitchen. As well as Pizza East’s existing favourites, new toppings will include: Portobello mushroom, tomato shallot and egg; and courgette, tomato, tallegio and majoram. The menu also offers char-grilled monkfish and pancetta, lamb cutlets with endive and caprino fresco, rib-eye steak, garlic potatoes and a full range of desserts.

Breakfast

Breakfast is available every day from 8am – in the sitting room and at the deli counter for coffee and pastries, or in the restaurant for something more substantial. The fried egg, pancetta & avocado ciabatta and homemade porridge with banana caramel both update old early morning favourites, while our selection of juices are freshly squeezed that morning. The full a la carte menu is available in the restaurant from 10am.

To-Go

When you don’t have time to eat in, there is a full takeaway and deli counter service. The deli also offers a selection of the restaurant’s ingredients, accompaniments and accessories for purchase. Store cupboard items, including our sauces, oils and salad dressings, are available alongside kitchen basics such as napkins, jute bags and teapots.
