After extensive renovations Spanish restaurant group, Brindisa Kitchens, has relaunched its Shoreditch restaurant, Tramontana, as Tapas Brindisa.
I dropped by the launch party last night. I was impressed with the new digs (loved the massive marble bar) and couldn’t get enough of the food on offer. The sliders with the morcilla mixed in with the mince were irresistibly delicious. The paella was maybe the best I’ve ever tried (for real).
For the launch, the dining area was cleared for standing room only. So, I couldn’t get a good sense of what the space will be like usually or how service will be. The place was lovely though; I’ll be keeping it in mind especially for coffee pit stops, and casual dining with drinks. Servers, bar staff and chefs were on the ball attending to guests with efficiency and personal attention as much as possible.
I’ve been a fan of Brindisa since soon after I first moved to London. I still get a foodie kick out of shopping at its Borough Market store. It’s great to see (and taste) how the group has managed to maintain a high level of quality and steady but measured growth.
