Time Out Says
When a new chef takes over an award-winning restaurant, questions inevitably arise. Will they live up to their departing predecessor? Will we still love the food? Thankfully, under the leadership of executive chef Doxis Bekris, we’re pleased to say the answer to both is a resounding yes. Get to Solo early and it can feel a bit like you’re rattling around the huge space. And it can take time to attract staff’s attention (the focus seems to be on preparing for busier times ahead). But you’ll be pleased for the time alone with the diverse menu. Look to the vitello tonnato antipasti, slow-cooked veal with tuna sauce, or the rather decadent carpaccio di capesante, scallop carpaccio with ox bone marrow and caviar. The fresh, thin and crispy, stone-baked pizzas are a classic, hearty choice, too. The cheese-to-topping ratio is spot on and the thin base doesn’t buckle under the weight of it all. Step outside of your comfort zone and try some tasty home-style dishes prepared with finesse. Solo is a cool, contemporary spot for a classically Italian dinner. Live the dolce vita and try it now.
