Joya, a popular Italian restaurant on Newmarket Row in Bath, has reopened as Joya Italian Steakhouse, offering diners an extended menu that now includes the option to cook your own 28-day matured steaks on hot volcanic stone. (The kitchen will still oblige too, though, if you prefer).
Taking a cue from sister restaurant Herd (see that fetching logo adorning the back of every Crumbs magazine), the menu at Joya now sports an extended grill selection with a range of steaks (has to be the 10oz ribeye for us) as well as flavoured salts, infused butters and homemade sauces for you to accessorise your protein.
Carb fans need not despair, the restaurant will still be serving up classic pasta dishes, with executive chef Paola even adding a family-recipe meatball dish for all your white shirt jeopardy needs.
The once Italian-only wine list has opened its borders too, now including an ‘international classics’ range with French Picpoul, Australian Sauvignon Blanc and Spanish Rioja as well as a new Italian dessert wine.
Along with the menu, the restaurant’s interior has had an update too, now a welcoming space with open fires and monochrome Italian prints. Bellissimo!
