London-based Spanish restaurant group Brindisa Tapas Kitchen is to launch its fourth outlet in the capital.
Set to open in mid-August, the new restaurant will be called Tramontana Brindisa and will be housed in the former site of vegan restaurant Saf in Shoreditch.
Celebrating the cuisine of the Spanish Mediterranean, the restaurant will serve a menu focused on fish, rice and pasta dishes as well as Mediterranean fruits and vegetables.
With a capacity for up to 100 diners, Tramontana Brindisa will also feature an 18-metre dining bar and outside courtyard.
Brindisa Tapas Kitchen co-owner Monika Linton commented: "We are thrilled to be opening in the vibrant neighbourhood of Shoreditch and Tramontana - the name of a wind that affects parts of this coastline - is an extremely exciting opportunity and will enable us to deepen the British experience of rice cooking from this part of the world."
Group general manager Victor Calvente added that wines would be as important as the food at the new restaurant. "The area is, of course, home to Cava and so we'll be able to have some fun with this and create an extensive Cava menu. We'll also create an interesting wine list which will showcase some local grape varietals such as the Monastrell and Moscatel and also feature some of the more unusual wines from Spain," he added.
Brindisa Tapas Kitchen operates two Tapas Brindisa sites at Borough Market and in Soho as well as Casa Brindisa in South Kensington. In addition, the group continues to run its Spanish food import and supply business.
