La Polpetteria Pop-Up
Locale's latest pop-up is all about meatballs, fritters, sliders, croquettes, arancini and gnocchi.
Fans of round foods, rejoice — they're on the menu at Locale in March. The Newstead eatery is dedicating the month to polpettes, aka Italian meatballs, but it's interpreting the term in a broad sense. So, you can expect them with spaghetti, naturally; however, you can also tuck into everything from fritters and sliders to gnocchi.
Salt cod croquettes and crumbed olives are also on the short-term La Polpetteria pop-up menu, plus lobster and pistachio arancini as well. And, to wash them all down with, the venue has put together a wine list that features drops from its own vineyard in Italy. Your tastebuds will think they've left the country for several reasons.
The La Polpetteria Pop-Up runs throughout the month, for dinner from 5–8.30pm between Monday–Thursday. To the surprise of no one in this time of reduced capacities, bookings are highly recommended.
