As if Dalston couldn’t get any cooler and along comes Stevie Parle with his new Italian restaurant and wine bar Rotorino.

rotorinoDalston is the place to be right now for incredible food and a chilled out vibe, something Stevie Parle, the mastermind chef behind Dock Kitchen, knew very well when he opened up his new food enterprise Rotorino. This awesome new restaurant and wine bar is set to be dishing out Italian food the way it’s meant to be, the good stuff served up without the buttons and bows.

With dinner available throughout the week, and some seriously tempting brunches and lunches at the weekend, Rotorino is all about fuss-free food with traditional cooking methods and authentic ingredients at the heart of it.

The menu is categorised by the way each dish is prepared, such as ‘cured’, ‘wood grill’ and ‘stove’, with each classic dish having a modern touch to bring them to life in modern East London. Stevie has gone for the approach of casual dining with none of the cheffy touches necessary, with the policy in this kitchen being Italian food done as the Italians would do it.

Diners can expect dishes like a simple grilled Turbot smothered in pungent rosemary and vinegar oil, chicken with ricotta served whole for a hungry party to share, and of course delicious antipasti and fresh pastas being cranked out like they would be in any Napoli kitchen.

As if the food hasn’t already got Dalston-ites pulling on their converse, the wine bar is set to be one of the best to get authentic Italian wines and bottles from around the world all within an arm’s reach of a sumptuous pea gnudi and sea bream carpaccio.
