Ex-Fat Duck chef and sommelier Jonny Lake and Isa Bal’s new London restaurant Trivet to open in autumn
Chef Jonny Lake and master sommelier Isa Bal, who worked together for over 12 years at The Fat Duck Group, have announced the name and concept of their new restaurant, wine bar and cellar, Trivet. Their latest venture is scheduled to open this autumn in the Snowsfields Yard development in Bermondsey. Trivet will be an informal, high-quality dining restaurant utilising the finest ingredients and wines and will aim to deliver an unrivalled taste experience.
“The name Trivet came about organically,” says Jonny Lake. “A trivet is an age-old cooking utensil – elevating pots over an open fire or providing a resting spot for dishes and pots.”
“Trivet implies balance and warmth which forms part of our vision and values for the restaurant, as well as our working relationship.”
“Throughout the many years we have worked together, Jonny and I have always been in pursuit of inspired culinary excellence. At Trivet, we will showcase our explorations of ingredients, dishes and drinks from different regions around the world,” says Isa Bal. “The design and experience of the restaurant will also be inspired by our travels, juxtaposing Nordic functionality with the warmth of the Mediterranean and a dose of fun.”
