Run by founders wife and husband team Genevieve and Tim, Pasero started off as a series of supper clubs serving seasonal menus, influenced by the cuisines of France, Spain, Greece and Italy.
The owners now hope to open an ‘evolution’ of their supper clubs serving European flavours with a focus on ‘colourful vegetarian and vegan dishes, alongside select high-welfare meat and fish’ and are seeking to raise £30,000 via the Crowdfunder platform to put towards their own savings.
Pasero will also operate as a bottle shop with additional items for takeaway.
"I’ve lived in Tottenham for seven years with my husband Tim and our two daughters. We moved here without really knowing the area very well, but from the off we knew it was home. The sense of community here is fantastic, and it has a wonderful independent spirit,” says Genevieve.
"In 2019, Tim was sick of hearing me go on about how much I wished I could open a restaurant, and it gave me the courage to book my first supper club event and Pasero was born. Two years on and the supper club has gone from strength to strength; we've served over 500 guests across the 17 events we've run, and we've loved every minute."
The all-day neighbourhood restaurant will serve breakfast and lunch during the day before switching to an intimate bar and restaurant in the evenings.
The pair hope to open Pasero in spring next year with the money raised from the crowdfund being used to help them secure premises, establish the team, buy stock and pay the rent while the build is being carried out.
