Pizza lovers in Buckingham are soon to find a slice of heaven, following the reopening and rebranding of one of the town’s well-known restaurants.
Nelson Street Restaurant left their reputation for traditional dining in 2017, reopening on January 12 with a fresh look and menu which includes 22” pizzas, ‘superfood’ salads, craft beer and coffee.
Louis Myhill, chef and owner, joked: “The pizzas we’re doing are ‘New York’ style, which isn’t too common here in the UK. We sell pizza by the slice, and we’ve done a lot of research into getting it right, I think we’ve all put on a bit of weight.”
The result of that research is Louis’ - the latest offering from the restaurateurs behind Binn Smokehouse and Nelson Street.
Louis, alongside business partners Tom Humphries and Mike Norris, opened Nelson Street in 2012, and pivoted to a fine-dining menu last year.
Mike said: “I think we wanted to make it a much more casual place, something locals could use regularly. Nelson Street only the wealthy could afford open to everyone that people could use
“We’re hoping to have quite a casual vibe at lunchtimes, where people can grab a coffee and be in an out within 45 minutes, but in the evenings, there’s opportunity for more of a meal.”
Louis added: “There’s still a big emphasis on the quality of food - the dough is made in advance, we use San Marzano tomatoes, so it’s all good produce. Affordable, but we’re still providing the quality.”
Toom: “the ‘superfood’ bowls are just as important part of the change as the pizza. They’re not just salads, but include lots of super grains too. They’re big wholesome bowls, a lot of effort have gone into them.”
Fans of the restaurant’s previous incarnation have not been ignored, however, as the trio plan to hold a variety of ‘pop-up’ events, in which they’ll return to their classic style.
The team are also hiring and would encourage anyone to get in touch on 01280 815556 regardless of experience.
