Tuyo to open in Broadway Market with former Salt Yard chef

Tuyo, the latest addition to the family-owned Gallipoli restaurant group, is opening in London's Broadway Market with former Salt Yard senior sous chef Ricardo Pimentel at the helm.

Set to open on 17 July, the restaurant will serve a menu of Mediterranean and Levantine small plates with a Spanish twist. The group, founded by Enver and Erdal Ucar in 1996, includes La Farola and Gallipoli in Islington and El Ganso in Hackney.

Pimentel has created a selection of ‘pinchos', or small bites, to share such as harissa lamb rump served with pisto and black olive couscous, pistachio and harissa dressing; duck and figs on a bed of pearl barley, gremolata, pomegranate, carrot puree and smoked almond; and picos blue and date croquetas served alongside charcuterie and cheeses predominantly sourced from Spain and Italy.

Main dishes include chicken thigh with honey-poached apricots, sumac yogurt and pistachios; halloumi, roast beetroot, orange hazelnuts and eight-year-aged balsamic; dill and lime-cured salmon and beetroot with yogurt and berries; and burrata, black beans, confit mixed peppers and sourdough croutons.

To one side of the room, a blue bar will serve house cocktails designed to complement the flavours on the menu, including beso de lavanda (Hendrick's, lavender syrup, lime juice); saffron aphrodisiac (tequila, agave, coriander, lime juice, chilli peppers and saffron); Greek style (Hendrick's, lime, cucumber, black pepper); and chilli gunners (Havana Club 3yr, Passoa, raspberry liqueur, lime and homemade chilli syrup).

The restaurant itself sits along the canal and will have an open kitchen at the entrance, white walls, hanging baskets and wooden furniture.
