Longstanding Covent Garden restaurant to reopen this summer

Opera Tavern, one of the forerunners in London’s ‘small plate’ dining scene, will relaunch this summer after Salt Yard Group sold the restaurant to Urban Pubs and Bars last year. The menu will retain the Iberico pork burger that earned so many plaudits, but is otherwise being revamped by Lukasz Kiełbasiński, a former senior sous chef at Salt Yard. Salt Yard Group, which retains its name, also sold that restaurant, Soho’s Ember Yard, and Dehesa to Urban Pubs and Bars. Expect more Iberico pork, with a piquillo pepper puree; bavette steak with bone marrow; and lemon sole with basil puree and brown shrimp sauce.
