The pop-up London restaurant is open until 7 January 2024, and it takes its cues from Prada’s first boutique in Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Walls are washed in Prada’s signature pastel mint with a bold black and white checkerboard floor and gold lighting pendants suspended from the moulded ceilings.
The space also borrows a trick or two from Prada’s Milanese cafe, Bar Luce – famously designed by Moonrise Kingdom director Wes Anderson and said to be inspired by a 1950s soda shop. Tactile floral bas-reliefs, velvet sofas, and armchairs add a bygone feel to the restaurant.
Diners can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner, as well as small bites and aperitivo. And as you’d expect, the menu celebrates Italian cuisine: think fresh pasta, seafood, risottos, burrata and decadent Italian pastries.
