A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors
Tom and Owen Morgan, owners of the Bar 44 group, have launched Asador 44 in Cardiff city centre. The tapas restaurant offers cuisine that combines Spanish and local Welsh produce and it specialises in asador-style cooking, where meat, fish and vegetables are cooked over charcoal and wood-fired barbecues.
The restaurant also has a ‘cheese cave', a walk-in wine room with a predominantly Spanish wine list and one Welsh sparkling wine, and dry-ageing meat cabinets.
Bar 44 has branches in Cardiff, Penarth and Cowbridge, serving modern Spanish food and drink, specialising in tapas and sherry.
