TOZI Grand Café is a new Italian restaurant bringing the classic elegance of Europe’s Grand Cafes to the newly opened Battersea Power Station. This isn’t just any Italian restaurant. Expect a kaleidoscope of colour, art, stunning Italian cooking, Italian wines and the finest Italian hospitality.
Battersea Power Station
Battersea Power Station is one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new riverside neighbourhoods. The regeneration project is delivering a vibrant, mixed-use destination offering a community of homes, shops, restaurants, offices, culture and leisure venues, as well as 19 acres of public space, all serviced by an extension to the London Underground Northern Line.
TOZI Grand Café
TOZI restaurants specialise in cicchetti inspired by the Venetian casual dining tradition, alongside contemporary Italian drinks. TOZI Grand Café expands the cicchetti offering to an Italian all day dining concept.
Part of the new art’otel Battersea Power Station, and facing the iconic Grade II* Power Station, TOZI Grand Café is the third TOZI restaurant and second London restaurant from the TOZI team. The food offering will be led by Executive Head Chef, Lee Streeton (Rocco Forte Hotels, 45 Jermyn St, Daphne’s), a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and two-time Hotel Chef of the Year nominee in tandem with TOZI Victoria’s Head Chef Maurilio Molteni (Neal Street Restaurant, Prism, Soho House Group),whose cooking remains rooted in Northern Italian traditions, having overseen prestigious establishments in Milan, Bergamo and Lake Como.
Menus have drawn from Europe’s famous cafés for this new London all-day dining concept. Breakfast will feature Italian takes on brunch such as baked eggs, spianata piccante, puttanesca, potatoes, whilst for Afternoon Tea from 3pm, “Pasticceria Mignon” will be offered. TOZI favourites including veal Milanese and TOZI’s signature lobster linguine will delight for lunch and dinner.
Our favourite was the sharing cicchetti, such as beef carpaccio, fried sage and anchovies and baked scallop with nduja. The other showstoppers were the pastas. Generously portioned and an array of meat and vegetarian options including the creamiest buffalo ricotta ravioli with black truffle. These will be served all day alongside salads, main courses and antipasti. To drink, you can expect barrel-aged Negronis, Bellinis and seasonal spritzes, as well as an all-Italian wine list matched to the food offering. The Summer will bring an outdoor lunch concept where you will be able to eat in or take away.
What about the interiors?
TOZI Grand Café has been designed by award-winning Spanish artist and designer, Jaime Hayon, founder of Hayon Studio recognised as one of the most influential creators of the past decade. The double-height height restaurant is dotted with hanging sculptural light fittings and a number of Hayon’s striking tapestries throughout the space, as part of an exhibition of one-off pieces.
With floor-to-ceiling windows and a beautiful alfresco terrace, TOZI Grand Café will suit any occasion throughout the day or evening.
