Homeslice Pizza Gets a Permanent Address
February 12, 2013
From street food to street side, Homeslice Pizza has found its home in Seven Dials, Covent Garden. Kiwi chef Ry Jessup teams up with business partner Mark Wogan to launch Homeslice, a unique 50-seat restaurant in the historical Neals Yard, opening March 2013. Jessup views the partnership as the natural evolution of Homeslice. We are keeping it simple, he explains. Mark really understands what Homeslice is all about.
Most recently, Homeslice has been a pop-up at cutting edge food destination The Filling Station in Kings Cross. Between that venue and the street food trading, Homeslice achieved a loyal following. Chef Ry Jessup believes that his home cooked pizza is food for the people, and he is a chef with a mission use simple, quality ingredients, create contemporary flavour combinations, and make the best pizza possible. This mission has become his passion. Jessup has obsessively created his own recipes for the pizza dough and tomato sauce.
Each pizza is individually hand-rolled on a marble work surface and cooked in a bespoke wood fired oven in an open kitchen. Five selections will be offered daily with combinations such as artichoke and courgette with fresh lemon and parsley or bone marrow, fire roasted spring onion and watercress. The classic Margarita will be a constant on the menu. Customers will be able to view the days pizzas on Homeslices Twitter feed: @homesliceLDN.
Jessup is keeping it simple with the drinks; British beer and Prosecco on tap, double magnums of house wine with a measuring stick on the tables for customers to help themselves and only pay for what they drink, and of course the pizza thats it.
As food for the people, Homeslice will have a £4.00 ethos: a slice, a pint or a from the magnum glass of wine all priced at £4.00 each. Whole pizzas will be available for £20.00 (20 inches, six slices). Both slices and whole pizzas will be available to eat in or take away.
Homeslice will be open Monday to Saturday noon till 11pm, Sunday noon till 6pm.
