Rita"s began as a pop-up restaurant in East London from 2012-2013. Founded by a group of four friends, the menu is as varied as their personalities, showcasing what the group set out to present as simply 'the best bar food they could think of'. Signature dishes such as the famous buttermilk fried chicken roll became standout but the restaurant menu has now evolved from bar food, maintaing the ethos of simple, good quality well made dishes. Head Chef Gabriel Pryce, after a five year stint working in NYC brings his interests in both classic American fare and the food from more far flung reaches so readily available in such a city to the menu and style of food created at Rita's, Adapting these influences to working with fantastic suppliers and seasonal, English produce along with the skill and experience of newest addition to the Rita's family, Andrew Clarke, (previously of Salt Yard).
Rita’s has quickly become an East End stalwart on Hackney’s thriving Mare Street. The menu is small but perfectly formed, with firm favourite fried chicken served up in a portion for 2. But no typical diner this, there’s also sweet potato gnocchi with pecan gremolata to choose from or how about mackerel kushiyaki? Plates come quick and fast whilst you’re kept busy with people-watching; this place fills up quickly so you’ll never be short of fodder be it foodie or fashion. They do a small take out menu if you’re in the area, otherwise you’re a stone’s throw from Broadway Market for a midnight tipple if you’re in the mood.
