Simon Mullins and Ben Tish will open Venice-inspired restaurant Veneta in St James's Market, London, this month.
The 110-cover Veneta will be the fifth restaurant in the Salt Yard Group, with a menu designed to reflect the eclectic mix of cultures and cuisines in the city.
Chef-director Ben Tish and head chef Jamie Thickett have created a menu including dishes such as kid goat ragu with fresh pappardelle; charcoal-grilled monkfish with anchovy sauce and salsify; and chicken braised in almond milk with Medjool dates and saffron. There will also be a changing menu of pasta dishes and seasonal risotto.
Co-founder Simon Mullins has devised the wine list, which focuses on northern Italy, and Italian vermouths and bitters will also be on offer.
