Restaurant set to bring a taste of Mexico to suburbs
A MEXICAN and South American bar and restaurant group is to open its next venue in Sutton Coldfield.
Bodega will be housed in former bathroom and kitchen fittings store Ripples, in Birmingham Road.
When it opens in October, it will be the fifth Bodega since the brand launched in 2010 in Birmingham city centre.
Matt Scriven, owner of Bitters ‘n’ Twisted which operates the Bodega restaurants, said: “A great opportunity has arisen for us to expand our Birminghambased group into Sutton Coldfield.
“We’re very excited to see how popu- the lar our cuisine and cocktails are outside the city centre and how we might be able to tailor our offering going forward for a new group of fans.” Bodega has grown steadily since first launching and the group opened a second restaurant in 2014 in Worcester city centre followed by venues in Derby and Leicester. It specialises in food such as burritos, nachos, tacos and halloumi burgers alongside Mexican and South American cocktails. Bitters ‘n’ Twisted’s other venues include Marmalade at The Rep theatre, in Centenray Square, and The Rose Villa Tavern pub in the Jewellery Quarter.
