Harden's says

Luis Pous, best known for the now-closed celebrity hangout, Asia de Cuba, opened this basement restaurant within 3 Henrietta Street, in October 2021; the menu spans the Pacific Rim and islands, particularly Kauai Hawaii.

Summary

In the basement of the large Covent Garden townhouse development that houses Pivot (see also), this autumn 2021 newcomer marks the return of former Asia de Cuba chef Luis Pous. Here, he will import a street-food operation along the lines of his ventures in Miami, New York and Riyadh. We can expect culinary influences from ‘the islands of Hawaii and the Pacific rim, all the way down to South America and a hint of the Caribbean’. Not much you can’t put on that menu! Dishes will include tacos, lumpias (akin to spring rolls) and ‘guacapoke’ – guacamole with poke toppings, alongside Tiki-themed cocktails.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
