Francesco Mazzei to open restaurant at Battersea Power Station
Italian chef Francesco Mazzei is to open his third restaurant with D&D London, at Battersea Power Station.

Fiume, named after the Italian word for river, will serve modern Italian food for lunch and dinner when it launches at the £9bn riverside project this summer.

It will be Mazzei’s third restaurant collaboration with D&D in the last two years. The chef re-launched swish Sartoria on Savile Row in 2015​ and opened Radici in Islington​ just last month.

Mazzei will oversee Fiume as chef patron, but the kitchen will be run day-to-day by head chef Francesco Chiarelli.

The 120-cover site will feature an open kitchen with a wood-fired oven, bar counter dining for 15-covers and a 50-cover outdoor terrace in the development’s Circus West Village area.

“When I saw the plans for Circus West Village and Battersea Power Station as a whole, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be involved,” says Mazzei.

“It is a one-of-a-kind project that will attract people from all over the world and I cannot wait to feed them all!”

Fiume will launch as part of the first commercial phase of power station redevelopment.​ Also opening at the site are the Wright Brothers, Danish pizza group Mother, Australian-inspired Ben’s Canteen and Duckroad – a sister restaurant to Soho’s Ducksoup.

Battersea Power Station was built in the 1930’s but has stood empty since 1983. A consortium of Malaysian investors bought the site for £400m in 2012.
