Que Pasa East London? La Bodega Negra’s younger sibling opens in Shoreditch this month! We can’t wait to check out downstairs, simply known as Casa Playroom…Phone lines are open now for reservations and Casa Negra will open its shutters on June 10th, offering 50% off all food ordered any time between 12 and 5pm for its first week of service.
Taking inspiration from its humble beginnings, Casa Negra will serve a refined selection of sharable dishes – delicate Mexican seafood, known as mariscos (ceviches, coctèls, aguachiles and tostadas) through to a delicious mixture of tacos including the classic lengua (ox tongue), birria con consommé (chocolate and ancho chile rubbed lamb shoulder) and cochinita pibil (orange and annatto flower marinated pork shoulder steamed in banana leaf).
Alongside authentic Mexican plates, Casa’s cantina has created a new signature dish that is set to have friends fighting over the last mouthful – carnitas de lechon. This hands on, sucking pig dish, served to the table, will offer up cuts from all parts of the pig and be accompanied by fresh salsas and traditional garnishes.
Casa Negra has brought over acclaimed chef Brad McDonald from New York, formerly of renowned Brooklyn restaurants Gran Electrica and Governor to head up the kitchen.The drinks menu is also new and will offer the timeless margarita made with Casa’s own house-made orange liqueur, sweetened with organic agave nectar alongside some incredible tequila and mescal creations.
Casa Negra’s open dining room will seat 82, with space for 30+ people to take a cocktail or two at the bar, serving through till 2am.
