Tom Cenci, who was last cooking at Stoney Street by 26 Grains in Borough Market, is teaming up with Guy Ivesha, founder of Maslow’s (which runs Mortimer House and Mortimer House Kitchen) to open Nessa in Soho this autumn. Inspired by Vanessa Bell and other creatives of the Bohemian movement, the 98-cover restaurant will be on the ground floor of the new 1 Warwick members’ house, itself taking up residence in a renovate 1910 neo-baroque building. The interiors will reference the Edwardian architecture, with a horseshoe counter, lounge seating and mid-century modern vintage furniture in the bar and lots of brushed oak, marble fixtures and banquette seating in the dining room.
We don’t have any firm dish details yet, other than Tom will be cooking a seasonal modern British menu that also incorporates his love for global flavours, so watch this space for more….
