After making a name for himself at Duck & Waffle, and then the excellent Loyal Tavern on Bermondsey Street, Tom Cenci is back cooking in London at Nessa - a British bistro on the ground floor of Soho members' club 1 Warwick. Cenci's cooking has been typically modern British in the past - it was his contemporary style that helped to make Duck & Waffle a household name in its early days - and Nessa champions the same seasonal British sensibilities. Nessa's menu combines seasonal British produce with international inspiration to create dishes that present British cuisine in an inventive, modern light.
Meanwhile, Nessa itself is relaxed and informal, despite it's members' club location, and it sits on the corner of Brewer Street and Warwick Street, making this a perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat and watch Soho life go by. The restaurant itself - and indeed the members club above - take lots of inspiration from the history of Soho itself, with decor and artwork that draws on the work of Bohemian artists and influence also taken from the eclectic Soho establishments of years gone by.
As for the building itself, this renovated 1910 neo-baroque townhouse is one of Soho's most impressive. Edwardian architecture meets mid-century modern vintage furniture, art and textural fabrics in the bar, whilst the dining room is a little more refined - think brushed oak and marble fixtures and plush banquette seating. And of course, there's some outdoor seating on Brewer Street and Warwick Street too; outside tables are nicely shaded thanks to awnings, making this a prime spot for al fresco wining and dining in Soho.
When does the restaurant open?
The restaurant is scheduled to open in autumn 2022.
