Caribbean restaurant and bar the Rum Kitchen to open in Notting Hill

The teams behind London supper club Love Brunch, nightclub Bungalow 8 and ping pong venue Ping, are to launch a new Caribbean restaurant and rum bar in west London.

The Rum Kitchen is set to officially open in Notting Hill in January.

The 60-seat restaurant will serve a menu of Caribbean dishes next to a selection of more than 100 different rums.

Head chef is Darren Williamson, who previously ran Puma Yard, a Jamaican-themed pop-up in Shoreditch during the Olympics.

The menu will offer "refined Caribbean classics" with typical dishes such as ackee and salt fish bruschetta with spinach and slow roasted cherry tomato and or ceviche of scallops, tomato salsa, guacamole, cucumber, spring onion and coriander. Other dishes will include jerk chicken and curried goat, as well as roast cod marinated in coconut milk with scotch bonnet, lemon zest, garlic and thyme and a brown-stew oxtail with butter beans.

The interiors will be developed by I Love Dust and 44th Hill whose previous projects have included Meat Liquor and Ping. The venue will feature a café-style dining space and downstairs cellar with exposed rum barrels.
