Cornwall-based restaurant, Rojano’s in the Square is to relaunch as Caffé Rojano in February after nine years of trading.
Owners Paul and Emma Ainswoth have confirmed the rebrand after they purchased the freehold of the site.
Caffè Rojano will reflect the “vibrant café culture” and Italian food scene that has inspired Paul and Emma on visits to New York. The new interiors, overseen by Emma, will feature 1920’s inspired art-deco designs.
The front of Caffè Rojano will showcase a counter displaying a pasta extruder that the chefs will use to create their signature dishes. Their homemade pasta also will also be available for guests to purchase, enabling them to take a slice of Caffè Rojano back to their own kitchens
Chef Director, Jack Clements, is working alongside the Ainsowrth’s in order to create a new all-day dining experience, mixing Mediterranean techniques with Cornwall’s “abundant” larder. The restaurant will be open every morning for breakfast and for Sunday brunch.
Breakfast will feature dishes including French toast, ‘Land and river’ which is toasted crumpets topped with a tartar butter, smoked salmon, lemon cream cheese, a poached egg and pangrattato.
American-diner style dishes like Buttermilk chicken waffles and Cornish gypsy eggs will also feature at the new site.
The lunch and dinner menus will feature a wide selection of sourdough pizzas and homemade pasta dishes and will include a selection of small plates.
Paul said: “After nine fantastic years of Rojano’s in the Square, Emma and I have decided to re-launch the restaurant as Caffe Rojano as well as buying the freehold. This has been a huge decision for us, but we’re confident that we can create a new family-dining experience here in Padstow. I’m incredibly excited to reveal the new interiors and menu inspired by the incredible Italian food scene in New York.”
Clements added: “We wanted to create a place where everyone could come together and enjoy a delicious meal at anytime of the day. We’ll still have a few Rojano’s in the Square signatures on the menu; however, the other dishes will be brand new. I’m extremely proud to be a part of this exciting new chapter and can’t wait to welcome our first guests on 10 February.”
