Simon Prideaux, a former operations director of 333 Holdings, is to launch a new pizza restaurant in Fitzrovia later this year. Melito, located on Great Chapel Street, will open on 1 September offering a range of high-quality "Roman style" pizzas, pastas, salads and focaccia sandwiches, for eat-in or take-away. Prideaux previously ran his own restaurant, Tartine, and worked at establishments including Vingt-Quatre, the Admiral Codrington and more recently Devonshire Terrace. The menu at Melito will be overseen by food consultant James Kirby, while the restaurant will be managed by Alex Head. Interiors will be developed by DesignLSM.
