The founders of GODO, Amin and Simone, were inspired to start up their company when they realised how much of a hassle it was to find premium but affordable food in the City. Dreary meals and tasteless ‘health’ food began to wear them down, so they decided to set up a premium food delivery service – inspired by their hometown, Milan. Cooked by a Michelin-star chef, delivered by an elegant Italian on a Vespa, and in custom-made glassware, GODO have turned the humble takeaway into an artform. To mark their launch, they’ve turned our space on Piccadilly into an elegant showroom for their products. If you’re passionate about Italian food and beautiful goods then pop by to get your fill.
When: From December until early 2016
Where: 90 Piccadilly
