West chef to launch Lon­don restau­rant

Western Daily Press - - News -

WEST Coun­try chef Peter Sanchez-Igle­sias will open his first Lon­don restau­rant, he has an­nounced.

The chef-owner of Miche­lin-starred Bris­tol res­tau­rants Casamia and Paco Ta­pas will open The Stan­dard Lon­don ho­tel’s rooftop restau­rant in King’s Cross next year.

Mr Sanchez-Igle­sias said: “I never thought I’d work with a ho­tel but this is dif­fer­ent. The team are amaz­ing. The peo­ple be­hind this project are hugely creative, open minded. It’s com­pletely the right fit.”

The Stan­dard Lon­don chief ex­ec­u­tive Amar Lal­vani said: “Peter is one of the most tal­ented and in­no­va­tive young chefs in the UK, if not the world.

“We are hon­oured to be col­lab­o­rat­ing with him and are thrilled that The Stan­dard Lon­don is the stage that he has cho­sen to dis­play his artistry to the world.”

The Miche­lin Guide awarded Casamia a star in 2009, with Paco Ta­pas awarded in 2017. Both res­tau­rants, par­tic­u­larly Paco Ta­pas, were evolved by SanchezI­gle­sias and his late brother Jon­ray, who died of can­cer in 2015.
