If you walked down Gartside Street in Spinningfields earlier this year, you might have seen a hoarding adorned with question marks. This enigmatic building is the soon-to-be opened Tattu, an Asian-style restaurant and bar. The menu, created by the executive chef Andrew Lassetter, will specialise in dim sum and small plates with the inevitable modern twist. Key staff (such as the dim sum chef) have been sourced from the Michelin-starred Hakkasan Group, the company behind some of London’s most popular Asian restaurants. On the drink side, the cocktail menu was designed by the team behind Elixir on Deansgate. £2.5 million has been invested in the building, much of this on the bespoke interior design. Split over two levels, the downstairs will be a 200-capacity bar, and the mezzanine will house the 130-cover restaurant. Tattu’s soft launch will be towards the end of this month, before the full opening in early May.
