Elis by Rafael Cagali

Rafael Cagali is to open Elis, a ‘relaxed’ sister restaurant to his two-Michelin-starred restaurant Da Terra at the Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green.

Building on the success of his two-star restaurant Da Terra. Named as a tribute to his mother, whose first restaurant and jazz bar in São Paulo was named after Brazilian musician Elis Regina - and replaces the space where the Corner Room used to be, and will be an intimate restaurant seating 30.

Expect a ‘relaxed interpretation’ of Rafael’s blend of Brazilian and Italian-influenced cooking with rustic dishes such as crab tagliolini verde, baby monkfish tail with black tucupi glaze, and pork chops with black beans & chimichurri alongside a relatively short selection of wines curated by Noble Rot.  


Signature Dishes

Vitello tonnato, bolinho de bacalhau (cod fritters commonly found in Brazilian bars), and pastas such as crab tagliolini verde; larger sharing plates include baby monkfish tail glazed with black tucupi, the juice of manioc root from the Amazon.
