What they say:
Calling itself London's premier pizza joint, Brooklyn Bite aims to bring a slice of NYC to London in the form of a speakeasy style cocktail lounge/ pizzeria, nestled in the heart of Chelsea. With authentic New York pizzas on offer (thin based, 18" and large portioned) as well as other treats like club sandwiches and calzones, this all day dining concept has opened at the end of March 2012 and offers take away as well as delivery. With a NYC style pizza joint on the ground floor and a speakeasy bar in the basement, London's gap for a bona fide New York Pizzeria is finally being filled by some of the biggest names in the nightclub and restaurant industry. Co-founder of the exclusive VIP clubs Chinawhite and Aura, Angad Paul, is backing Brooklyn Bites, along with entrepreneur Aditya Khanna, founder of Michelin-starred Tamarind. Heading up the speakeasy Pizzeria is American restaurateur, Ilias Nathanail, for whom this is his first UK venture.
What we say:
It does sounds strange, a Pizzeria on the prestigious King's Road, however this joint isn't any old Pizzeria... Serving up libations and dough-based feasts fit for a king, Brooklyn Bite is set to be as up-market as a speakeasy pizzeria can get. With its backing from top nightclub owners and entrepreneurs, as well as a top American restaurateur, the Chelsea bar Brooklyn Bite definitely has the recipe for success and pizzas to fill the bellys of the young Chelsea crowd and beyond, washed down with some delicious cocktails in the Brooklyn Bite bar.
