Chef Bruno Loubet is to replace his Zetter restaurant Bistrot Bruno Loubet with a pop-up venture called Grain Store Unleashed, ahead of the hotel opening a new as-yet undisclosed venture in the space.
Grain Store Unleashed, which is expected to open on 13 April and will run for a limited time, has been inspired by Loubet's King's Cross restaurant Grain Store, which champions vegetables and international flavours.
Bistrot Bruno Loubet has occupied the space in the Clerkenwell hotel for the past five years and the decision to re-launch with a new concept is in response to the chef's move away from the bistrot style he became known for. It will close on 6 April.
The pop-up will be open all day, with an a la carte menu as well as two set menus available as six-courses for £32.50, and eight courses for £39.
Commenting on the announcement, Loubet (pictured) said: "I'm really excited to pursue this direction of cooking that I have enjoyed since opening Grain Store. We are going to take risks and show what is possible with vegetables. With Grain Store Unleashed I will take the Grain Store style of cooking to another level."
Bookings for Grain Store unleashed will open on 25 March, although it is not clear how long the project will run.
It is not yet clear whether the new concept to follow the pop-up will be a Bruno Loubet led-venture.
