Great British Menu chef Adam Byatt will reopen his Trinity restaurant in Clapham, south London, on 6 October with a new look and additional space following a three-and-a-half month closure.
Originally launched in 2006, the restaurant will introduce a new casual dining space on the first floor, in addition to the creation of an outside dining area on the newly created Clapham Old Town urban piazza and the installation of an open plan kitchen.
While the business will retain its ethos, culture and team, designer Adele Harrington has created a more elegant space with a lighter, less masculine style than the previous interior.
An art deco feel has been introduced with elements of marble, stone, brass and wood, alongside new leather banquette seating and soft furnishings of jade green and dusty heather pink. Three bespoke paper-cut collaged artworks by Kristjana S Williams will complete the space.
The casual dining space, called Upstairs, will feature wooden communal dining tables set along new picture windows with views on to the Old Town piazza. All dishes will be cooked to order from an open island kitchen, with a selection of 12 daily changing small plates on offer. These will cost between £3 and £12 and include the likes of roast chestnut salad, bbq squid and gremolata, crab thermidor, game broth, radishes and turbot roe, and quince and cardamom granita. A feasting menu will also available for large groups.
The menu served in the original ground floor space and new piazza will focus on Byatt's interpretation of great classics, with two or three courses available at £28 and £35 respectively. Dishes include the Trinity's signature pig's trotter with gribiche, lemon sole baked in seaweed butter, pot au feu of duck, roast grouse with white polenta and blackberries. Apple pie and custard, one of the desserts Byatt served on Great British Menu last year, will also feature.
Trinity is a previous holder of the AA London Restaurant and Time Out London restaurant of the Year awards.
