Perched at the corner of Brewer and Great Pulteney Streets, Mele e Pere (Italian for ‘Apples and Pears’) with its Murano-glass adorned windows, might be mistaken for a gallery or maybe the office of a sleek Soho agency. However, walk through those doors and you are in a buzzy ground floor aperitivo bar with an alluring Italian trattoria housed a floor below. Family-run with a menu packed with robust, yet inventive dishes, Mele e Pere offers up a fine feed. The new bar not only serves prosecco on tap – but also the ultimate pre-dinner tipple: spritz – mixed with homemade vermouth. Yes! Book yourself in for date night or take the visiting parents here for an impressive dinner in town. You will not be disappointed. / Chloe McCloskey
