Silvena Rowe to open restaurant in London's May Fair Hotel

Silvena Rowe]( is to open a restaurant at London's five-star May Fair Hotel.

The Bulgaria-born chef and food writer will launch the restaurant later this year, serving a menu of seasonal UK produce with Eastern Mediterranean influences.

Interiors at the new restaurant will be designed by Martin Brudnizki, whose other London projects have included Dean Street Townhouse, the Club at the Ivy and St Pancras Grand.

Some of the recipes at the Rowe's new restaurant will come from her latest cookery book, Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume, with dishes influenced by the flavours of the Oriental Mediterranean region.

Rowe was born and raised in Bulgaria to a Bulgarian mother and Turkish father, but has lived in London for more than 25 years.

She was the executive chef for the [Baltic Restaurant Group](, which includes the London restaurants Baltic, Wodka and Chez Kristoff. She has previously worked as a cookery teacher at Mosimann's Academy of Culinary Excellence, Baker and Spice, and Books for Cooks, all in London.

The May Fair Hotel declined to comment.
