Newest arrival to Bermondsey Street, Flour & Grape, is a pared back, casual, full-of-energy Italian restaurant.  All of which may sound like a familiar concept to South Londoners; Padella, Franco Manca and Mercato are all within a square mile of each other, and they’re are all dishing up fine Italian food at smug prices. But, the menu here is quite outstanding – guaranteed to leave you battling with your gluttonous twin-self. It’s seriously hard to restrain from ordering the entire small plates selection – with dishes like the Salumi with prosciutto crudo, truffle mortadella, salami, and the Endive with pear, gorgonzola and pine nuts – and prices that start at £2 and end at £7. Expect to battle your pesky twin some more when it comes to the fresh pasta dishes, of which there are eight to try, and that again never wonder beyond the £10 mark. The Mafaldine; tiger prawn, prawn bisque and basil, was particularly stand-out, but we’ll be back soon to make our way through the rest of the menu.
