The FINANCIAL -- Chef-restaurateur Michael Nadra, who runs his eponymous restaurant
in Chiswick, west London, is set to launch a second venture next month.
Michael Nadra Primrose Hill will open on Gloucester Avenue on 1 September. Located a near the Camden Canal, on the site previously home to Sardo Canale Restaurant, the 130-seat restaurant will be much larger than the Chiswick site comprising a bar, events space and an alfresco dining terrace.
With an emphasis on good-value, high-quality, contemporary food, the menus will feature British, European and Asian ingredients. In addition to Nadra's signature à la carte and six-course tasting menus, there will be set menus priced £10, £14 and £18 for one, two and three courses respectively, as well as a brunch menu on the weekend.
As Caterer and Hotelkeeper reported, the martini bar will offer more than 20 classic and modern martinis and about 20 wines by the glass, alongside a tempura and ceviche menu.
Beneath the main restaurant, the venue's vaulted events space - housed in the building's Grade II-listed horse tunnel - can hold up to 22 people for private events.
Commenting on the new restaurant, Nadra said: "After the success of the Chiswick restaurant, it has been my ambition to open a second, larger venue. The Primrose Hill site offered the perfect opportunity and we're thrilled to be in such a sought-after area of London."
Formerly called Fish Hook, Nadra relaunched the Chiswick restaurant in 2010. He has previously worked at Chez Bruce, La Trompette, Putney Bridge and the Atlantic.
