Someone said to me that I was the best PR for Bristol because it always looks so cool. I think that just means that I am always posting about food that I enjoy eating. Not a bad thing, really. Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of L’Osteria’s first UK branch, located in Quakers Friars. I took Sarah with me, and we headed down the red carpet to the most fun opening party ever! When the restaurant has its own song, you know it’s going to be a crazy good party.
There were lots of trays of canapes being handed out – these were delicious and enormous! There were also lots of trays of cocktails and prosecco going around – I had a few Aperol Spritz’s which always remind me of my final year of uni. Later on in the evening, we were offered pizza, pasta and little puddings which were all excellent. I would never normally order pasta at a restaurant, but the different bowls of pasta going around the room were so good!
The kitchen is open plan to the restaurant so we were able to watch the kitchen staff making the delicious huge pizzas from scratch (and see them dancing about to the band that were playing all night!). There’s a private dining room upstairs as well, which could be really good for a #blogclub dinner perhaps. I’m looking forward to going back soon for a good catch up with my favourite ladies!
(Oh, and this? This is just a giant cheese wheel that they were serving pieces of next to a prosciutto slicer. Cheese and meat…such an excellent combination!)
