Trivet | The next project from the Fat Duck’s head chef
After working at The Fat Duck, chef Jonny Lake is now opening his own solo restaurant.
Big whoop, we hear you say, anyone can flip burgers at The Fat Duck for the summer, that doesn’t make them Heston-bloody-Blumenthal.
Well, no. But Jonny Lake worked there for 13 years, becoming head chef back in ’09, helping the place keep its three Michelin Stars year after year, and working his way up to become executive chef of the entire Heston restaurant group. So, in short, his first solo restaurant is kind of a big deal.
It’s going to be called Trivet and he’s bringing the head sommelier of The Fat Duck with him. Details are scant at the moment, but it’ll be in London Bridge (at the old Londrino space, pictured at the top), and the food will probably be stunning no matter what it is they settle on. Design-wise, they’re “juxtaposing Nordic functionality with the warmth of the Mediterranean and a dose of fun”, which sounds lively.
And as for what an actual trivet is? They’re the metal coaster-things for pots & pans to rest on tables, or above fires. Which is appropriate.
Because this particular Trivet is going to be hot.
NOTE: Trivet is due to open sometime this Autumn. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more at Jonny Lake’s Instagram, right HERE.
