Tutto, an ambitious new Italian restaurant from the team behind Brighton’s Salt Room, is to open this summer in a revamped 1930s bank on Marlborough Place – just a few minutes’ walk from the Brighton Pavilion.
The kitchen will run by Sardinian-born Mirella Pau, who is from a restaurant-owning family. Mentored in London by Angela Hartnett, she spent four years as head chef at Cafe Murano in Covent Garden, a post she has also held at Padella Shoreditch.
Launching in June, Tutto is the latest opening from Black Rock Restaurants Group, founded by Razak Helalat (pictured above with Mirella) 11 years ago. He has two Coal Shed grill restaurants, in Brighton and near Tower Bridge in London, The Salt Room seafood specialist, and last year opened Burnt Orange in Brighton’s Lanes, where the food is cooked over a wood fire.
Tutto, meaning ‘all’, will be open all day and evening, with the classic Italian attitude of “bring everyone, eat everything“. It is scheduled to launch in June with 80 covers inside and another 34 on an outdoor terrace.
