This week sees pizza emporium PLY officially launch its brand new food and drink menu, including seasonally inspired small plates, new Neapolitan wood fired pizzas and deliciously inventive cocktails.
Emanating from the disco pizza oven will be some exciting new toppings to the authentic Neapolitan sourdough base. There’s the Rustica (£11), which is a white pizza topped with buffala mozzarella, prosciutto, rocket and sun dried tomato, as well as the Pear & Blue Cheese (£9.50) providing an explosion of flavour that binds fior di latte, gorgonzola, pear, maple walnuts with the additional option of crispy smoked pancetta (£11).
In addition, creative combo lovers will love the Chorizo & Squash (£11) topped with tomato, fior di latte, chorizo, roasted squash and smoked Scamorza cheese.
To add to this already comprehensive pizza selection, PLY is also introducing a number of small plates that will sit comfortably next any cocktail or craft beer from their carefully constructed drinks menu.
The new small plates include Charcuterie (£9) made up of Coppa ham, salami, smoked mutton, air-cured duck, pickles and bread and Beetroot Capaccio (£4), accompanied by goats’ cheese, maple and walnuts.
Also new is the, very fresh, Fennel & Orange Salad (£4.5) served with watercress, honey and thyme and the plate of succulent Lamb Chops (£7) marinated in anchovy, rosemary and garlic and also served with watercress
Mixing up the menu and adding to the increased variety are the comforting Asparagus (£9), a bianca with ricotta, parsley, garlic and lemon and the Aubergine & Sweet Red Pepper (£9) topped with tomato, fior di latte, aubergine, red pepper, black olive and basil pesto.
PLY is celebrating summer with some brand new arrivals to its cocktail menu. There’s a big long list of them that include First Day of Summer (£7) is a seasonal blend of gin, raspberry, basil and soda and the Vitamin Bee (£7) which is made up of gin, bergamot, honey and lemon.
The Blueberry Nectar (£7.5) is a rum, blueberry, coconut water and soda based beauty and the Strawberry Fennel Flip (£7) is full of flavour and made up of rum, strawberry, fennel and cream.
General Manager Rashid Khan said: “We wanted to make the menus even more interesting so we’ve kept the classics and added different styles of small plates, pizzas and some really nice, diverse options to the cocktail menu. We can’t wait to see how they go down”.
