Rita’s started out in 2012 as a pop-up above a nightclub in Dalston, serving ‘modern American comfort food’ alongside simple, well made party drinks. After making a name for themselves, the Rita’s team graduated to a standalone space in Hackney which was open from 2013-2016, leading a wave of contemporary dining in the area whilst building a much loved neighbourhood restaurant.
Most recently, Rita’s have been involved in residencies and take-overs both in London and abroad, including a bar takeover at Freedmans in LA and a cooking stint at Restaurant C.A.M in Paris earlier this year.
Energised by their experiences, founders Missy Flynn and Gabriel Pryce have now found a new London home for Rita’s in the Redchurch Brewery in Bethnal Green, whose craft beers they will be serving on the terrace alongside their now signature pink frozen margarita, and a short natural wine list.
Their special menu for Frieze will showcase chef Gabriel Pryce’s unique take on food from across the America’s, with a nod to Mexico, where Missy and Gabriel have both travelled extensively. Diners on the terrace will be able to enjoy Wild Mushroom Quesadillas (gf, veg), Low and Slow Lamb, pickled chilli & anchovy slaw rolls and Beet and Green Goddess Salad (vegan, gf).
