West chef to launch London restaurant
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.
