Hot new London restaurant openings: May

Morito Hackney 

Morito

Sam and Samantha Clark have opened a second site of their popular Moorish tapas venue Morito on Hackney Road. Samantha will be running the show at the all-day restaurant with Moro’s former head chef Marianna Love. Breakfasts include made-to-order Moroccan breads, while sharing plates take their inspiration from Morocco, Turkey and Crete.

Flying out of the open kitchen onto the marble-topped bar will be aubergine manti with yoghurt and pistachios; homemade halloumi with pickled za’atar; kid mechoui with goat’s curd, preserved lemon and harissa; and charcoal grilled fish with garlic, guindilla chillies and Sherry vinegar.
