Putney veteran restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas is coming back. her latest project will be at Gregg Wallace's Wallace & Co site on Upper Richmond Road in Putney will soon be reborn as an Italian restaurant, Bibo, to launch on 6 March.

The original plan was to open Bibo with Theo Randall at the Lower Richmond Rd site where she ran Cantinetta but in July 2013 we reported the joint venture had collapsed. The new site includes a new partnership as the kitchen will be led by Chris Beverley, who coincidentaly worked with Theo Randall at The Intercontinental and before that he was at Chez Bruce.

Hardens commented:
" Chris Beverley, Bibo’s chef, has some impressive names on his cv – Theo Randall at the Intercontinental and Chez Bruce – so it could well be one to watch. Look out for dishes such as: fritto misto of squid, prawns and zucchini; pappardelle with rabbit and prosecco ragù; cod, artichoke, potato and taggiasche olives and chocolate and almond cake with mascarpone cream."

At Bibo's 40 seater bar Bibo you will find a wide range of Italian aperitifs, cocktails and grappas and a selection of antipasti throughout the day.

Rebecca brought us The Phoenicx & Cantinetta in Putney plus Sonny's Kitchen in neighbouring Barnes, Kitchen W8 in Kensignton and in partnership with Sam Harrison at Harrison's & Sam's Brasserie.
