Loose Connections - Mike at Figo London
In celebration of our loose connections and the wonderful benefits they bring to our lives, we’re interviewing some of the very important people that you might meet if you work, live or visit Stratford.
Figo reflects both the tradition and the modern aroma of cucina italiana! (That’s Italian cuisine to you-and-me) Their menu spans specific regions over the country, where tastes have evolved over centuries of good eating. Mike and his team graciously fielded some of our questions.
