Walking home on West Green Road last night I saw the shutters up on what was the stylish Italian restaurant, Buonissimo, that shut last year...
Getting closer I noticed a sign (picture attached) saying it's to reopen on the 1st October - the owners list themselves as Anima e Cuore...
Being nosey (and excited that there will be a cool restaurant at the end of my road again) I googled the names... apparently Anima e Cuore is a very successful Italian in Kentish Town with rave reviews...
Now it's not confirmed it's the same people but I reckon it's more than likely.
What with the Nile having a complete refurbishment and reopening as a Bulgarian restaurant at some point in September as well as the old faithful Autograf still pulling in the punters, all of a sudden the Turnpike Lane end of West Green Road is bursting into life.
I agree! It's great that people are moving in and opening new, good restaurants and cafes. I just meant that perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that a potential new arrival isn't what it could have been, because WGR isn't quite yet a destination for foodies.
We know what you meant, Charlotte, and you are quite right, we are just being overzealous and sensitive to any criticism.
Coz we love West Green!
Er, interesting to note that Mustapha refers to it as Camden. So it is appropriate to honour the maestro by reflecting his language.
I think they can get away with calling that end of Kentish Town Road Camden.
I'm still mourning the loss of Two Doors Down... some of the best coffee and food in the area.
A breathless build-up of passione and awesomeness, only to plunge anima e cuore into a carsmash and weeks of emotional lamentation in its wake.
Sounds like Lady Di on steroids alright. Buonissima!
truly devastated... I was already planning my birthday meal there...
"if you build it they will come"
