About Stork

This fusion restaurant bills itself as a modern British joint with west African and eastern European influences – not what one might expect to find amid the old-school art dealers of Mayfair’s Cork Street.

The restaurant is owned by business partners (and life partners) Michael Adjovi Kalu and Nadina Grigoras. Michael hails from Nigeria, while Nadina is from Moldova and the two have used their own backgrounds as inspiration for Stork’s menu of fusion dishes. The restaurant gets its name from the migration of a stork, a bird which journeys from eastern Europe to western Africa

The two-storey space accommodates 120 diners and comes complete with an open kitchen and a counter where customers can watch the chefs at work. The rest of the interiors blend the opulent with the rustic – sanded-down wood and cushion-scattered banquettes are contrasted with hand-decorated ornamental eggs on the walls and golden stork taps in the loos.

The menu is just as varied as the restaurant’s look, with the kitchen headed up by chef Adebola Adeshina, who boasts six years of experience at Gordon Ramsay’s Aubergine back in the day. Wide-ranging dishes that you might find yourself ordering include lobster and caviar, which sit alongside the likes of jollof rice and yam chips double fried in duck fat.

Decadent desserts, meanwhile, are engineered for social-media sharing – just take the Granny Smith, which is presented to look like a glossy green apple, and then reveals itself to be an almond sponge with an apple filling and yoghurt ice cream.

To drink, there is an extensive selection of wine, alongside beers and cocktails which make use of on-trend ingredients such as yuzu and hibiscus. The prices at Stork are as punchy as you’d expect given the location, but if you’re on a budget, you can make use of the good-value set menu instead.
