Named after the Roman goddess of fire, Caia is being launched by Rishabh Vir and Tim Lang and will have a ground floor restaurant and a basement bar and music venue.
The ground floor dining room will have spaced for 60 covers including a bar and open kitchen at which 10 diners can sit. To the rear will be a 12-cover wine room complete with a floor to ceiling wine display.
Caia will serve ‘wine-friendly’ small plate dishes cooked on a custom-made, open fire grill including charred meats and vegetables alongside a range of ferments, vinegars and preserves.
The wine list is being put together by wine expert Beth Brickenden and will include an extensive list of Old-World wines from producers old and new with a collection of aperitivo and digestivo cocktails also available.
The restaurant is due to open in March.
