London restaurant duo Conor Sheehan and chef Jackson Berg will launch a new moveable restaurant in Margate next month called Xiringuito (pronounced chi-rin-gito).
The restaurant's structure, designed by architect Asif Khan, will incorporate scaffolding poles to allow for it to be easily constructed and dismantled from site to site.
The inside space comprises an open kitchen and dining bar along with table seating, and artwork (below) commissioned by illustrator John Booth.
The restaurant's name is taken from the Catalan for the provisional, seasonal bars that open up on beaches during the summer months, and it will include British dishes with an international twist.
Xiringuito will reflect Sheehan and Berg's experience at restaurants including Jamie Oliver's Fifteen and St John Bread & Wine, as well as their recent stint working together as general manager and head chef at east London restaurant Bistrotheque.
Berg's food will make use of local and foraged produce, and dishes will also make use of more unusual meat cuts.
At lunch the food offering will be more casual and will include Berg's take on the British seaside classic fish and chips. At weekday lunch there will also be a daily three-course set menu.
The evening à la carte will offer a wider choice with a changing selection of smaller and larger plates.
Margate will be the first location for the restaurant and it will occupy the space next to Dreamland amusement park from 1 June.
