Spanish Restaurant Group has announced that it will open a new Tapas Revolution restaurant in Brighton in June.
The restaurant will take over a former Bella Italia site next to Brighton Pavilion on North Street – with the venue serving traditional spanish tapas.
The 2884 sq ft 100-seater city centre venue will also feature a Spanish Terraza for up to 80 people. In addition, the menu creation will be led by executive and celebrity chef Omar Allibhoy Cuende, who will also develop a range of new vegan dishes for the site.
James Picton, MD for Spanish Restaurant Group, said: “Spanish cuisine remains under-represented on the UK high street, which always surprises us considering Spain is one of the leading countries in the world for both Michelin star, diverse and exciting regional gastronomy.
“Our mission is to give more people the opportunity to enjoy an authentic taste of Spain on their doorstep. Brighton has an amazing food scene and is a great fit for the laid back, ingredient-focused lifestyle which tapas embodies. We’re on the lookout for further openings in the coming months, with a number of locations currently in discussion.”
Tapas Revolution opened its first restaurant in Westfield in 2010 and now operates eight other sites across the UK which are a mix of dine-at bars and restaurants. Brighton will be the brand’s fourth full restaurant concept, and further expansion plans are in the pipeline.
