North London Restaurant Kings Are Back At It

Big Jo | A Supersized Bakery And Restaurant In Holloway

North London restaurant trio Western’s Laundry, Primeur, and Jolene are getting a younger sister…

…and she’s not your average Jo.

Her name’s Big Jo in fact – set to be a supersized bakery and 60-seater restaurant on Holloway’s Hornsey Road.

After the rising success of Jolene (also a bakery and restaurant), owners Jeremie Cornetto and David Gingell are keen to keep to the same format just… bigger. See they’ve got some serious plans, like trying their hand at regenerative farming, improving the local grain economy, and creating a sustainable food system, which they can’t currently do at their smaller sites.

They also want Big Jo to eventually supply all of their current restaurants, as well as ten new hole-in-the-wall spaces, which they plan to open over the next couple of years.

It’s going to be a big ol’ project for sure, although if history’s anything to go by, they’re sure to rise to the challenge…

We’ll keep you updated.

NOTE: Big Jo is set to open this coming May. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can get a better feel for what it’ll be like by checking out Jolene.
