Raviolo. GONE.

A sad day for Balham. Raviolo has closed down. This is to add to the dramatic closure recently of Tabaq.

We'd been to Raviolo once and aimed to return. But looking back at it we weren't blown away by it and the concept was perhaps too niche for Balham.

Whilst Tabaq and Raviolo have closed, Gazette, a Cuban place, Clover Brown and the Fat Delicatessen have opened. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away as someone once may or may not have once said.

Balham is in an exciting state of flux. Ever since Waitrose opened it's been excitement ever since.

(Trying again. Commented in the wrong place.)

The site of Raviolo is jinxed. £ places have come, failed, and gone in the last handful of years. What did it for me was the menu - just so very uninspired. That, plus it was always full of kids...

It really wasn't that great unfortunately. But it's a tricky spot to get right. Such a busy road. Probably better suited to a nice kebab or curry house that actually stays open beyond 11pm!
