Portuguese powerhouse for Battersea Power Station

Star Portuguese chef Henrique Sá Pessoa, who trained in London almost 30 years ago, makes his return to the capital later this year with the opening of a new high-rise restaurant in the Battersea Power Station development.

JOIA, 15th-floor Iberian restaurant with its own bar on the floor below as well as a rooftop bar with an infinity pool, will be part of the new art’otel design by Foster + Partners. Henrique is executive chef at art’otel Amsterdam’s restaurant ARCA, and has his own flagship restaurant Alma and as well as tapas bar Tapisco in his native Lisbon.

Henrique said: “It is such a joy to return to London, having trained here in the brilliant emerging scene in the 90s. I love this city and I can’t wait to cook and share with the guests my take on authentic Portuguese cuisine.”
