Stevie Parle announces Rotorino closure

Stevie Parle's southern Italian restaurant Rotorino is set to close, the chef has confirmed.

In a statement Parle said he was looking to "focus on my other projects". While he did not mention in his announcement when the site on Dalston's Kingsland Road, London, will formally close, the last date bookings are available is April 9.

After last year closing The Dock Kitchen in Ladbroke Grove - his first restaurant - Parle's portfolio now consists of Pastaio in Soho, Palatino near Old Street and Craft in Greenwich. He is also a partner at French restaurant Sardine in Islington.

Writing on the restaurant's website Stevie Parle said: "I've been running Rotorino now for 5 years and we've had a lot of fun, but it's time to call it a day so I can really focus on my other projects.

"I'm hugely grateful to the amazing team (who will all, I hope, continue to work for me) and to JD, Rick and Liam for helping to make it happen in the first place.

"A special thanks to our amazing guests who have made the last five years such a joy and I wish the new occupants every success with the site. We've got a late license for the last few weekends so we'll be open till the early hours.

"So come and have your final Sicilian 65 and plate of sausage pasta, hope to see you there this year, or in one of our other places next year."
