A new Basque-influenced restaurant is set to open in Dalston this week, called Screwdriver, the restaurant will be ran by brothers Emmanuel and Alexis Ross.
The brothers have previously been behind projects such as Polpo, Five Points Brewing Company and The Ned. Inspired by “countless visits to Galicia and the Basque country” the menu will feature shellfish, fish and meat dishes cooked on a plancha grill, alongside a selection of cocktails.
The Ross brothers said: “Like the very best places, we want Screwdriver to be somewhere everyone feels welcome. Our calling card is service, we think we can be up there with the very best London has to offer, but in an informal, charming and totally unpretentious fashion.
“We’ve lived and worked in Hackney for a number of years and kept this street in particular under close observation, due to the uniqueness of its character. At the moment it’s got the perfect mix of established market traders and some more recent success stories, like Ridley Road Market Bar and The Three Compasses, both different, both brilliant and we want to join in.”
