Following last year’s successful Soho hit La Bodega Negra, Ricker Restaurants will launch Casa Negra in Shoreditch on 10 June 2013, adding to the group’s portfolio that also includes E&O, XO, Cicada and Eight Over Eight.
Casa Negra will offer a menu of Mexican style street food, including ceviches, coctèls, aguachiles and tostadas, along with a number of different tacos.
Casa Negra’s signature dish will be the Carnitas de lechon – a suckling pig ‘served at the table with fresh salsas and traditional garnishes’.
The head chef at Casa Negra will be Brad McDonald from New York, formerly of Brooklyn restaurants Gran Electrica and Governor.
Casa Negra’s dining room will seat 82, with space for 30+ at the bar, which will be open until 2am. There will also be a ‘Casa Playroom’ downstairs – full details to follow!
