In late 2008 Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo opened their first – and now award-winning – independent restaurant venture, Bocca di Lupo, on Archer Street, Soho. Gelupo, a traditional gelateria and delicatessen, followed in June 2010 directly across the street.
Jacob’s enthusiasm for and knowledge of Italian cooking and culture stems from extended periods of time travelling around Italy and researching its regions and cuisine. He has written two cookbooks: The Geometry of Pasta (published by Boxtree, May 2010) and BOCCA (published by Bloomsbury, June 2011).
Victor oversees all operations at both restaurants.
Vico is their latest exciting venture.
