The restaurant that, perhaps first, bought fine dining to East London closed its doors on 28th of February. See here for a statement from the restaurant. Nuno Mendes has moved on to open the Chiltern Firehouse in a new hotel in Marylebone, meanwhile Jason Atherton is to open, yet another place, in the old Viajante space in Bethnal Green.
We had the 12 course menu, shortly before it closed:
Salsify with pine and mushroom
Beets and cheese
Parmesan with potato and truffle
Blueberry and sorbet
Pumpkin with rice ice cream and bergamot
Some of the dishes were excellent including, predictably the pork, others were average and one or two were a bit strange. Viajante will surely be missed as it was definitely a different restaurant that pushed a few boundaries in its time.
