Small plates: Brixton Feb foodie news round-up

Tastes of Tuscany
Along with its landscapes, history and artistic legacy, Tuscany is celebrated for its regional cuisine and high-quality seasonal produce, particularly game. In April, Tuscany on a plate is arriving in Brixton via Maremma, with its focus on regional specialities, charcoal grilled meats, fresh pastas and gnocchi.

Pop goes the truffle
They do good pop up at The King & Co. This month and next, street food guerrillas Truffle invade the kitchen with, you guessed it, a truffle-infused menu of small plates, signature burgers, slow cooked meats and truffle mash (ups). Until 31 March.

Growing up
POP’s fave home to quirky Sicilian dining, Trattoria Franzina is departing its cosy sea container. Panic not, the team are setting up a bricks and mortar “proper restaurant” just round the corner. Bringing the classic traditions of family-run tavernas and regional Sicilian cuisine to Coldharbour Lane.

Blues brothers
Not just Americana dining and lots of Bourbon at Blues Kitchen Brixton. They have kicked off a midweek Brixton Blues Jam where anyone can join in. Channel your inner Robert Johnson and get a free drink, the rest of you £5 cocktails all the way.

Creative comfort
For Clapham’s vegan pop up Meet, the experiment is over – they’ve gone permanent. So unless you were just flirting in Veganuary, Dominic Taylor’s chirpy indulgent plant-based comfort menu, vegan revamp of “millenial favourites” and vegan cocktails are here to stay in Clapham North’s industrial arches.
