Diners at Fiorita Deli and Restaurant will notice some changes at dinner time with the restaurant having rebranded its evening sitting to Little Kitchen this week.

The updated name is aimed at giving dinner at Fiorita a new identity and better represents what the restaurant is all about.

Blanche Group managing director Bart Parsons said the business had probably made a bit of a mistake using the word “deli” in the original name.

“People don’t identify that a deli can function in a non-traditional way,” he said.

“We also get a lot of reports that people can’t find it due to the difficulty in spelling Fiorita.

“Little Kitchen alleviates those two issues.”

Little Kitchen will be very different from Fiorita’s daytime trade and offer an intimate dining experience.

“Whilst during lunch and dinner you see a bustling and vibrant cafe, our dinner service is much more intimate and refined,” Mr Parsons said.

“Our staff are passionate about the food (chef) Nick (Woolard) prepares and spend the extra time discussing the meals, matching wines or latest craft beers which suit our customers’ desires.”

Little Kitchen will include a core menu but will also feature Mr Woolard’s creative flare in a changing specials menu, degustations and specialty wine nights.

“People can expect to see Karratha’s best little menu, simple food with flare, excellent and knowledgeable service, creative specials, events and super relaxed dining,” Mr Parsons said.
