What: Camino Shoreditch
In a nutshell: The Spanaish tapas restaurant goes east.
Summing it all up: This will be the fourth restaurant and tapas bar from Camino. Expect all the favourite tapas to be on the menu here, along with some new additions. And a huge outdoor terrace too.
Spanish bar and restaurant Camino has been slowly expanding across London, starting at King's Cross and reaching out to Monument, Bankside and Blackfriars. Now they're heading further east with the fourth Camino opening in Shoreditch.
It's a big old place (designed by the people behind (Lyle’s, Gymkhana and Roka) with a Notrthern spain look. There will be room for 80 in the restaurant, 75 in the tapas bar and a further 40 on the outside terrace - which will be heated during cold spots, so you'll be able to stay out there all year long.
Food-wise, expect similar fare to the other caminos, but there will be new tapas on the list too - we'll have more details of that closer to the opening.
And it's a return home for the group too, who originally opened Cantaloupe in Shoreditch many years ago - well before Shoreditch was transformed into its current incarnation. As Camino's owner Richard big said "Shoreditch was a very different neighbourhood, completely unknown to the rest of London, and all my friends thought I was mad. But I had a good feeling in my bones about it and it turned out to be the right thing at the right time. The DNA sparked off then, lived on in all the bars we opened since and very much so now at each Camino."
