They've been big in Shoreditch and now it looks like David Carter and Chris Leach's Manteca are opening a second restaurant in Shoreditch. According to a story by industry newsletter Propel, they're looking to take over an old Pizza Express site on Curtain Road (very close to Carter's Smokestak).
Manteca originally started life as a residency at 10 Heddon Street (where Fallow is now) before moving onto their own place in Soho. The food has been described as a nose-to-tail "Italian with a British accent". So it combines dishes like tonnarelli and brown crab cacio e pepe with rare breed pork chop Milanese, pickled fennel and lemon. Whether this will be the same at the new location, we'll have to see.
We'll have more information when they make an official announcement, which should be soon.
