La Tasca, which last night won the award for Best Restaurant Menu (21+ sites) at Restaurant’s Development Chef Awards, has launched a new menu and dropped some price points “in line with guest feedback”.

Chief executive Simon Wilkinson said the group had specific feedback on its Cocido section, “so we have premiumised the portions by increasing the meat quantity, simultaneously lowering the price point by £1”.

“We have also added lower priced dishes such as Habanas con chorizo y champinones. Guest feedback is at the heart of our business and with La Tasca not having a fat corporate structure we can react to feedback and make changes very quickly, in this instance within less than four weeks.”

He described trade as “very buoyant”, with its refurbishments “showing good returns across the UK”.

“We are doing up to two sites per week and are on track for a May finish. We are especially pleased with the guest reaction to our secret Jamon & Wine Bodegas Bar in James Street, which is aligned with finessing our brand to be local.”
