Meter Bar & Eatery: More Pizza for Shoreditch

One of the pies on offer
Pizza East has competition, or at least it will do as of March 21 when Meter Bar & Eatery opens in Shoreditch, showcasing pizza by the metre (so why they've gone all American on us and called it Meter is a bit of a conundrum).

Italian chef Valentino (clearly, like Madonna, he only needs one name) will be heading up the kitchen, and, as he was brought up in Naples and worked in the pizzeria next door to his home since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, he knows his onions (and his tomatoes and mozzarella too).

It's being kept simple with eight different types of pizza, a small antipasti selection and some signature Italian dolce including affogato and tiramisu. A full bar with everything from Bellinis to beers will be on offer in a classic Shoreditch-style space - think exposed brickwork and mismatched wooden furniture.
