Las Iguanas, the South American-inspired restaurant brand owned by Casual Dining Group, will open a site in Bournemouth this month.
The company is opening the venue at the BH2 development in Exeter Crescent on Monday, 19 June. The restaurant, which will have 160 covers inside and another 20 outside, will have vibrant decor showcasing the tropical styles and sun-kissed colours of Rio de Janeiro as well as big bold graphics inspired by the colourful selection of street art in Buenos Aires.
The menu will include new additions such as Bolinhos de Caranguejo – crab, prawn and potato croquettes – as well as the Cuban sandwich consisting of roasted pork belly, pulled pork, Emmental cheese and ham with sweet mustard and green pickle.
New drinks include a Chilli Paloma infused with a plume of Ancho Reyes along with the lulo and agave cooler.
