Burnt Orange founder’s new Brighton Italian restaurant opens

A NEW Italian restaurant created by a renowned restaurateur will open next month in a restored 1930s bank.

Tutto, which will open at Marlborough Place in Brighton, promises a traditional Italian dining experience and encourages friends and family to come together to drink and share food.

The restaurant is the latest creation from Brighton restaurateur Razak Helalat, who also founded The Coal Shed, The Salt Room and Burnt Orange.

Tutto will offer diners a range of small plates of different Italian dishes, called “cicchetti”

Dishes at the new restaurant include tomato, mozzarella and basil panzerotti, mangalitza pork sausage stew and Vin Santo tiramisu.

Tutto, the Italian word for all, opens in a 1930s Grade II listed former bank, with many of the original neo-Georgian features retained and restored to create an informal dining space full of personality.

Features salvaged from the bank are contrasted by more contemporary elements, including paintings by local artists, chandeliers, and marble tabletops.

The restaurant will also have a theater kitchen to create an inviting space, alongside a crescent-shaped bar with a 90-bottle wine list spanning Italy.
