REVIEW: The Wedge Issue, Farringdon
Mellow Monday nights are made for artisanal pizza and craft beer. These age-old favourites have been revamped time and again throughout London’s foodie renaissance – better ingredients, fancier service and nicer venues take classic combos and make them uber cool.
We rocked up a little late (the address, 91-95 Clerkenwell Road, didn’t show up on our Google Maps, so be sure to look up where you’re going beforehand), tired and hungry after a trialling first day of the week. Low lighting, softly-spoken people on neighbouring chairs and low-key service gave us the virtual hug we so needed (helped by a large glass of house rosé).
You can build your own pizza from scratch, or choose from the menu offering a selection of pizzas and pastas. Toppings include everything from the spiciest Diabola sauce in the UK to Parmesan shavings, anchovies, soft egg and Ricotta. We started with a gluten-free base from the Little Venice Bakery (so moreish), plus caramelised onion, roasted garlic, egg, capers and mozzarella.
In less than fifteen minutes we had perfect pizzas fresh from the oven, the crispy base so tasty we’re considering going back for another. Beer ranges from crafts to caps to cans, about 20 options ready to remedy your woes. After a heavy weekend, the high quality simplicity of this place was like therapy – we’d go back in a heartbeat.
