Moro and Morito chef proprietors, Sam & Sam Clark, opened their third restaurant, located at 195 Hackney Road, in 2016.
Morito Hackney Road draws influences from Southern Spain, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean including the island of Crete, where Head Chef Marianna Leivaditaki grew up and worked in her family’s fish restaurant. Samantha and Marianna have worked hard sourcing exceptional produce, some of which is not yet available in London.
Morito has a concise offering of wines from the Mediterranean - primarily mainland Spain and Portugal - with a couple of lesser known wines from the Canary Islands. There is a selection of sparkling, white, red, pink, and orange wines, with many available by the glass. For those looking to venture past these, there is also a list of Sherry and Vermouth.
The restaurant has been designed in collaboration with artist Dillwyn Smith and features a horseshoe shaped marble topped bar, polished concrete floor, bright shots of colour, an inviting open kitchen and large windows allowing for a light and airy space. Further contributions came from Hackney-based designer Sam Newton.
