Stevie Parle’s Rotorino to close

Rotorino, chef Stevie Parle’s Italian restaurant in London’s trendy Dalston district, is to close its doors after five years in business.

Stevie Parle’s Italian restaurant Rotorino in Dalston is to close on 22 December

As reported by Eater London, the final service at Parle’s Kingsland Road restaurant will take place on Saturday 22 December.

“I’ve been running Rotorino now for five years and we’ve had a lot of fun, but it’s time to call it a day so I can really focus on my other projects,” Parle said in a statement.

“I’m hugely grateful to the amazing team, who will all, I hope, continue to work for me, and to JD, Rick and Liam for helping to make it happen in the first place.

“A special thanks to our amazing guests who have made the last five years such a joy and I wish the new occupants every success with the site.

“We’ve got a late license for the last few weekends and we’ll be open till the early hours. So come and have your final Sicilian 65 and plate of sausage pasta, hope to see you there this year, or in one of our other places next year,” he added.

Less than a year ago Parle announced the closure of his Ladbroke Grove restaurant The Dock Kitchen.

Following Rotorino’s closure, Parle will continue to run pasta palace Pastaio in Soho, Italian restaurant Palatino in Old Street and Craft in Greenwich. He is also a partner in the French restaurant Sardine in Shoreditch.
