Harden's says

Former Fat Duck duo - head chef Jonny Lake and sommelier Isa Bal, who worked together for 12 years - opened this restaurant and wine bar in Bermondsey, in the new Snowfields Yard development in November 2019. Bal said of the opening, "The design and experience of the restaurant will also be inspired from our travels, juxtaposing Nordic functionality with the warmth of the Mediterranean and a dose of fun."

The Bermondsey location is “not the easiest to get to”, but many reporters make the effort for this “very accomplished” four-year-old. Chef Jonny Lake provides “absolutely first-rate cooking” with “refined and exciting flavours” and sommelier Isa Bal curates a “fantastic and eclectic” wine list. But even numerous fans feel a tad daunted by the pricing – “I thought it well worth the trip and deserving of its reputation, but the bill here makes it a treat rather than just a meal out…”; “it was very good… luckily I wasn’t paying!”.

Since its opening in late 2019, this Bermondsey three-year-old from Fat Duck alumni Jonny Lake (chef) and Isa Bal (sommelier) has burnished a formidable reputation as one of the more interesting culinary arrivals of recent years. Jonny’s cuisine is “superb and delicate” and “if the food is outstanding, then the wine list is outstanding-er!”“an incredible and esoteric range” with “a focus on Georgia, Turkey and Armenia”. And it’s a “comfortable” space too where, for once, “you can hear yourself think”. It would score higher were there not a less wowed minority of reporters who either found the overall approach “excessively serious”, or who were “not convinced by the menu combinations despite having high hopes”.

“What a cellar of joy!” Alumni of the Fat Duck, head chef Jonny Lake and sommelier Isa Bal opened this Bermondsey venture in late 2019, in the new Snowsfields Yard development, and it has become a favourite for many reporters, thanks to its “brilliant but not OTT cuisine” and also to the veritable “tomb” of a wine list (“they must have a huge cavern somewhere to store it all”) – that “goes deep on surprising regions – like the Greek Islands – and is, in itself, a journey through the history and love of wine”. There’s only one drawback – it’s “flipping pricey”.

Summary

Former Fat Duck duo – head chef Jonny Lake and sommelier Isa Bal, who worked together for 12 years – will open this restaurant and wine bar in Bermondsey later in 2019, in the new Snowsfields Yard development (and the former site of Londrino, RIP). Bal said of the opening, ‘The design and experience of the restaurant will also be inspired from our travels, juxtaposing Nordic functionality with the warmth of the Mediterranean and a dose of fun’.
