Walking into Polpetto, Russell Norman’s latest Soho eaterie, it’s hard to imagine that just a few months ago the space was a soulless concrete box. Today, with its genteel net curtains, duck egg blue distressed plaster walls and scuffed wooden floors, it looks and feels like an authentic Venetian bàcaro.
