The Institute of Light, Hackney’s newest collaborative space, launches in London Fields this June. Comprising an art-house repertory cinema; a vinyl record store; restaurant and bar; coffee shop and bookshop; The Institute of Art will be a one-stop cultural hub in this burgeoning quarter of East London, located in an enigmatic arch and opening out to an intimate courtyard. 

Perfectly poised to celebrate the event of summer - The Rio Olympics - The Institute of Light have partnered with renowned Brazilian event organisers MargoCamilo, to launch, ‘Rio Boteco’ – a contemporary Pop Up take on the Brazilian “corner shop pub”. 

Utilising “Boteco” as a vehicle to showcase both Brazilian culture and eclectic gastronomic heritage, Rio Boteco brings a comprehensively upscaled menu of traditional tapas and street food, complimented by a fusion of traditional Brazilian comfort dishes.

Signature dishes will include;

Vaca Malandra (slow cooked short ribs with cassava gratin)

Moqueca de peixe e camarão (fresh seafood stew with coconut and palm oil curry)

A rework of the traditional Pastel de Siri (a typical fast food dish consisting of a crab filled, thin crust, fried pie).

Rio Boteca had really nice food and service. The location was great and we found the whole place (cinema, bar tec.) really good. Great for a nice summer night out in London. Agnes visited The Institute of Light on 10 Aug 2016
