MorMor kitchen residency announced

MorMor to start Kino kitchen residency from September.

Following their recent sold-out supper club event, Kino is delighted to reveal that the award-winning Levantine inspired MorMor will be taking up a kitchen residency at the new restaurant from 14 September until the new year.

MorMor will be the first of longer-term kitchen residencies and guest chefs to take over the impressive kitchen space at Opera North’s brand new city centre restaurant. Kino opened to the public earlier this month showcasing an informal charcuterie and cheese offering.

MorMor’s food offer is inspired by a love of the varied flavours and cultures found in the Levant – a crossroads of western Asia, the eastern Mediterranean and North-East Africa. Their unique contemporary dishes were teased at their supper club last weekend with dishes such as Soft Shell Crab, Chicken Shish Tawook with Grilled Lombardi and Grilled Aubergine with Date & Dukkah Crumb and Tahini Yoghurt.

Richard Mantle, General Director, Opera North comments:

“Following a hugely successful pop-up event, we are thrilled to welcome MorMor for the first kitchen residency at Kino from September, extending the restaurant’s dining offer with their vibrant and contemporary Levantine-inspired dishes.”

Hugo Monypenny, MorMor comments:

“The pop-up last month was incredible. After being in fields and working events, it was great to be back in a full sized kitchen once again, where the food can fully shine. We can’t wait to take over the kitchen again from 14 September. Thank you so much to the Kino team for putting so much trust in us. What can you expect? From the rack of lamb to whole mackerel with daily specials, we suggest you keep your eyes on social media for our menu.”
