italian restaurant from salt room team to open in june

Restaurateur Razak Helalat – the man behind The Coal Shed, The Salt Room and new popular hangout Burnt Orange – is opening an Italian restaurant in Brighton this June.

Tutto (Italian for all) will be headed up by Sardinian-born chef Mirella Pau (formerly head chef at Covent Garden’s Cafe Murano and Shoreditch’s Padella, pictured below with Razak) under the wonderfully inclusive ethos of ‘bring everyone, eat everything’.

The informal, all-day restaurant takes its inspiration from traditional Italian dining culture and aims to bring together all of its basic elements, focusing on simple quality and the Italian experience of sharing delicious, seasonal food.

The new 80-cover addition to Razak’s tasty Black Rock Restaurants stable will be set in a beautifully restored 1930s former bank on Marlborough Place. They’re leaving many of the original features in place, so a characterful dining space is guaranteed.

An outdoor terrace will seat another 34 people – perfect for transporting yourself to sunnier Italian climes over an aperitivo or three. We can’t wait!
