The House of Peroni, a pop up which graces our presence twice each year, is back on Brick Lane for one month only! I went along to the opening party to see what was on offer. Here’s the verdict.
We got a selection of Italian classics to nibble on, including what can only be described as the best meatballs I have ever had in my life. Ever. The food was flavoursome and not too heavy, with a boozy yet light dessert to end. Having had a taste of what’s on offer, I will definitely be making a booking for the private dining experience – if I can find any spaces. The five course experience has been created by Michelin-starred Sicilian chef Accursio Craparo and promises to be the highlight of the residency.
The House of Peroni residency runs from tonight (29th October) until 25th November. It’s open from Tuesday – Sunday each week and is in a great location in the centre of Brick Lane. Entry to the house is free of charge, while the private dining experience costs a reasonable £65 including 5 courses plus 2 drinks. In the main house, beer is £4 and cocktails are £6-8, much cheaper than most bars in London! With these prices, there’s no excuse not to head to the house even just for a quick drink to take in the surroundings and enjoy the experience of ‘Vita all’Interno’ (‘a life lived inside’, the name of this residency).
We were both extremely impressed with how the space has been transformed by the team behind this residency. Curated by Gingerline’s creative founder, Suz Mountfort, and immersive storytellers, Reuben Feels, The House of Peroni offers a unique and enchanting experience. I cannot recommend this enough – you’ve only got a month to enjoy it so don’t hesitate!
