Newly opened: VyTA

Covent Garden is especially festive this time of year with Christmas carols, lights and great food. A brand new design led Italian restaurant is coming to Covent Garden with an all day concept serving breakfast, brunch and dinner. VyTa (Vita meaning life in Italian) is swooping in from Italy to deliver the warmth of Italian hospitality with contemporary architecture and a passion for food with quality ingredients. The restaurant has velvet furnishings, large lamps with precious metals to showcase the Italian sixties. With three floors the restaurant has a 200 person capacity with a cozy lounge and a hidden gem in the basement for private dining. The restaurant also has a heated terrace in the heart of the Covent Garden piazza.

The menu features eclectic and creative dishes like Risotto Rosa (Red Beetroot, Gorgonzola Cream, Candid Lemon) Prawn Carpacci (Red Prawns with Marinated Vegetables, Burrata Cream and Pomegranate) and Autunno (Cream of Pumpkin, Figs, Toasted Hazelnuts and Crispy Pumpkin skin). They also have an impressive wine list, which includes some of the finest Italian wines.

Guests can also expect unique cocktails like Garden Of Eden (Gin, Grapefruit Sherbet, Raspberry, Egg White) and Artichoke (a sweet and smooth Italian mix of Dark Rum, Coffee Liqueur, Sweet Vermouth and Cynar). Ready to set the mark on the London dining and social scene VyTa is set to be the newest hot spot for Londoners. VyTa will also have you dancing in the evenings, from Thursday to Saturday with a house DJ from 7pm to 11pm.
