Omar Allibhoy to open Tapas Revolution in Newcastle

Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy is to open his sixth Tapas Revolution site next month, in Newcastle's Eldon Square.

The menu offers dishes cooked with Spanish artisan ingredients and the menu is split into fish, meat and vegetable sections. It includes classics such as tortilla; croquetas de jamon; calamares; chorizo cooked in Asturian cider; Txuleton de ternera (rib eye and sirloin steak from 10-year-old cows in the Basque region of Spain) and churros.

As part of a collaboration with the Cocktail Trading Co, the Newcastle site will offer a new cocktail menu of classics with a Spanish twist including blood orange and cherry royal (a blend of Larios gin, blood orange, aguardiente de cerezas, pimento dram shaken with lemon and topped with Cava) and the Espresso Blanco Martini (Veterano brandy shaken with espresso, milk, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua and Frangelico). Other drinks include Spanish craft beers and a variety of soft drinks and wine from small Spanish producers.

Allibhoy said: "There's a great restaurant and bar scene in Newcastle and I can't wait to get involved in the buzz happening here and bring a little Spanish twist to the city. Tapas Revolution in Eldon Square is my version of the lively and bustling tapas bars in Madrid, Barcelona and Seville. We can't wait to open our doors!"

Tapas Revolution launched in 2010 at Westfield Shopping Centre in White City. It now operates in London's Shoreditch, Kent, Sheffield and Birmingham.

It is set to open another new site in Bath in April this year, after it raised £2.5m in growth capital from Mobeus Equity Partners, having been advised by New World Corporate Finance.
