Rita's are on the up again. Bodega Rita's closed and then resurfaced in Clerkenwell and now, 10 years after their first pop-up, they're opening a restaurant in Soho.
They've been open as a terrace restaurant for a few weeks, but now they're ready to open the main event. The menu will be inspired by Gabriel Pryce and Missy Flynn travels across the Americas, including:
- Jalapeño popper gildas
- hot bean devilled eggs
- barbecued beef tartare with garlic
- salt cod taquitos
- a vegan ‘cacio e pepe’
- grilled sugar pit pork collar
- whole fish a la plancha
- steak dinner for two served with all the trimmings
That steak dinner, should be a particular highlight. Here's what Gabriel Pryce says: "I want to offer a full-on, all points covered classic steak dinner for two. Beautiful sirloins and rib eyes, with all the trimmings. Starters, sides and dessert all included and all done unlike anywhere else."
Wines will be a big deal, in a list that's been co-created with Missy’s brother Cameron Flynn, who's also their wine manager. The list will feature mainly old-world, low intervention wines made by producers who champion terroir and sustainable farming, while cocktails are inspired by Mexico and North America.
