Polpo, Italian for Octopus, is the second in Salty's Plat du Jour fresh prints. The image grew from a Venice sketchbook -  the abundance of casual delicious snacks couldn't be ignored. What is instantly apparent in Italy (and pretty much any other European countries) is what would be considered a fine dining dish or artisanal in Britain is readily available and affordable without pomp everywhere else! A long standing champion of good affordable food, Salty's puts the freshly fried polpo on a plain chopping board, casually framed by newspaper - almost fish and chippifying the dish. The glass of wine and the sea horizon puts us into holiday mode, it must be al fresco - but then the disposable fork brings us back down to cafe convenience. We long for this affordable, delicious, casual dining. Take us back to Italy!
