So, word is out. The name of Tooting’s new restaurant is TOTA, an anglo saxon word possibly meaning the people of Tooting. It is to be located at 102 Tooting High Street and should be open in a couple of months. Yay, Tooting is a changing.
Through the wonders of modern social networking I got chatting on Streetlife to Victoria, and later met up with both Victoria and Gary (the chef), the proprietors of TOTA, for a delicious slap up meal at their Tooting home. Wowee. Need I say more, the People of Tooting are in for a gastronomic treat.
Following this boozy meal Colporter was instructed to help these lovely people realise their wonderful vision for the exterior and interior of TOTA. We have been busy for a month or so now, doing site visits and choosing things for the interiors scheme and, of course, visiting lots of other eateries for research purposes only of course. The look and scheme is top secret for now but we will give you some snippets of info when the builders start! Keep an eye on the outside as that is soon to get a smart new paint job on the upper floors which will give some clues to the remainder of the scheme.

This is hugely exciting for us as we LOVE Tooting, we LOVE food, and we LOVE restaurant interiors.
