What: Mamarosa Shoreditch
In a nutshell: Barcelona beach restaurant comes to Shoreditch
Summing it all up: The Barcelona beach restaurant Mamarosa migrates to the new Shoreditch Village space. Expect a mix of Mediterranean and Italian cuisine (but no beach views).
From beach to city...
The original Mamarosa restaurant in Barcelona is best known for its pretty stunning beach-side location. And is apparently a bit of a celeb hang-out spot.
Now a spin-off is coming to London, which we don't think will have quite the same views. It's instead going to be part of a new development, Shoreditch Village (next to Boxpark and expect some more new restaurants to be announced there too).
It's all going to be next to the CitizenM boutique hotel in Shoreditch and the two-storey location promises to be pretty huge too. As for the food, we're promised Italian and Mediterranean fusion and some of the planned dishes are "tuna tartar with avocado cream and passion fruit", "milanesa of chicken with arugula" as well as black Angus loin, pizzas and more.
We'll have more closer to the opening date.
