Gerry Avena, the chef and restaurateur who has operated the street food van Moretto’s Italian BBQ in Tenterden for over a year, has created a menu with a modern European bistro feel in mind. The breakfast and brunch menu will include a classic Moretto’s breakfast with locally sourced bacon, sausages and homemade beans on sourdough toast, and a brunch dish of poached egg, avocado and chorizo atop two crumpets, A full range of home-made cakes and pastries will be available throughout the day. The Daytime Menu will focus on Mediterranean salads and sandwiches, including the famous Moretto’s Meatballs on ciabatta, as served on Gerry’s street food van. Completing the Daytime Menu will be artisan pasta dishes using hand-made pastas from the Borough Market based La Tua Pasta.
Gerry Avena comments, “Tenterden is my hometown and has a high street I love. We’ve very much enjoyed hosting our street food van on Friday and Saturday evenings, and it’s a logical next step for us to open our eatery and coffee shop on Tenterden High Street. I’m looking forward to cooking once again, serving some of my favourite dishes in a welcoming environment. We’ve worked hard on the interiors as well as the menu, creating a design which is reminiscent of the eateries and bistros of the Mediterranean.”
