REVIEW: RIGO

What?

Having spent his childhood on the French boarder of Italy in Piedmont, surrounded by diverse flavours and a rich tapestry of native ingredients, Gonzalo was immersed in food from a young age. His Grandfather, who was a pastry chef, taught him the foundations of cooking and a respect for crafting food with love, passion and skill, an ethos which he built on when he embarked on his journey through Europe, Asia and South America. He worked under some of the most progressive chefs in the industry, including Alain Ducasse and Walter Eynard and led several high-profile restaurants. Gonzalo sees RIGO’ as the place where his past experiences and influences can come together.

Our thoughts?

What a lovely addition to the neighbourhood of the lovely Parsons Green.

Honestly could not fault this menu.

My favourite was the Wild Enoki which has a risotto texture but made of small mushrooms!
