If you've been wondering what's taking over the former Londrino site by London Bridge, then let us enlighten you. It's going to be the location for the first solo restaurant by ex-Fat Duck Head Chef Jonny Lake.
Last year, chef Jonny Lake, left the Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck group where he'd been for 13 years, becoming Head Chef of the Fat Duck in 2009 (one of the UK's very few 3 Michelin starred restaurants) and ending as Executive Head Chef of the group. So he's quite a big deal. He then announced he'd be teaming up with another Fat Duck Alumni, Master Sommelier Isa Bal who'd been at the Fat Duck for 12 years, eventually becoming Group Head Sommelier.
They don't have a name for the restaurant yet, but they're pretty happy with the space they've taken over. “We were looking for an open and contemporary space in a vibrant area," says Isa, "somewhere relaxed and fun where we can celebrate what is in the glass and on the plate."
They're expecting to open in Autumn 2019.
