Nuno Mendes will leave his Michelin-starred restaurant Viajante at Bethnal Green's Town Hall Hotel at the end of February 2014 when the restaurant will close. The closure comes as Mendes moves to Andre Balazs' new Marylebone hotel, Chiltern Firehouse, where Mendes will be executive chef for the launch. Chef-restaurateur Jason Atherton and Singaporean lawyer turned restaurateur/hotelier, Loh Lik Peng, will set up the replacement on the Viajante site, an as yet unnamed restaurant launching in April 2014 where Lee Westcott will be the executive chef.
Situated in the imposing grandeur of Town Hall, Viajante is a mecca for food-lovers. The restaurant is guided by celebrated Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes, whose dedicated team are constantly pushing boundaries with their innovative and exciting food creations. Viajante surprise tasting menus combine the simple with the extravagant, taking inspiration from Portugal, Spain, Asia and Scandinavia. Designed by award-winning architects, Rare, and featuring installations from fashion and lighting designers as well as some of the East End's most brilliant young artists, the restaurant forms the perfect setting for the exquisite series of courses. Choose from between 6, 9 and 12 courses to experience the full range of chef Nuno Mendes's dazzling cuisine.
