Call Kol to make a booking on:
OPENS SEPTEMBER 2019
The debut London restaurant from chef Santiago Lastra is set to launch in late 2019. Kol, which will open at a yet-to-be-confirmed location, will be a Mexican joint which makes use of ‘local’ produce from around the UK. The well-respected chef previously oversaw the launch of world-renowned restaurant Noma’s seven-week pop up in Mexico, but is now focusing his attention on opening in the capital.
Kol will serve Mexican food made with ingredients sourced mainly in the UK, and will also champion ingredients which are often looked upon as simple or low-end. Its approach to food is referenced in the name. Kol is a play on the Spanish word ‘col’, which translates as ‘cabbage’. Lastra revealed in an interview that he chose the name becasue he wants to show that “an average ingredient can be incredible”.
The site will be in central London, although the exact location is yet to be announced. Kol will also boast a bar, which will have a focus on mezcal and natural wines. This isn’t Lastra’s first time dabbling in the London restaurant scene, as he previously hosted a residency at Marylebone’s Carousel, which features an ever-changing roster of top chefs taking over its kitchens for short-term residencies.
