Just saw that Franco Manca
are planning on opening a branch on Bermondsey Street
this year (see Tweet on Jan 1 here: https://twitter.com/FrancoMancaPizz
). Much as I think they're great (branch in Brixton market always worth a visit), I'm a bit worried they're going to eclipse dear old local Ticino that seems to be taking some time to get its cafe up and running. Does anyone know anything more about either of these? ie. when/where Franco Manca
may set up, and when Ticino intends to open its doors? I'm guessing Ticino Cafe has pizzas planned judging by pizza oven visible in back of premises. Surely there's not room for two pizzerias on one small street...
