May opening for Bjorn van der Horst's first solo restaurant

Former Greenhouse and La Noisette chef Bjorn van der Horst will launch his first solo venture, the Eastside Inn in Farringdon, in May.

The former Michelin-starred chef, who had planned to launch the restaurant last winter, is opening the venture on the site of the former Vic Naylor site on St John Street.

The Eastside Inn will be divided into two sections, a 36-seat fine dining restaurant on the one side and a 55-seat casual bistro on the other.

Each will have a separate entrance and the two will be divided by an open centrally located kitchen with bar from which the food for both parts of the restaurant will be sent out.

Two kitchens located in the downstairs of the building will be used for the preparation of the food. Chef-patron van der Horst will oversee both kitchens together with head chef Nick Ward.

Front of house will be overseen by van der Horst's wife Justine, who will be restaurant director, as well as restaurant manager Thierry Sauvanot.

The food at the fine dining part of the Eastside Inn will be contemporary, with three-, five- and seven-course menus on offer and the average spend at around £90 per head.

The bistro will offer a traditional menu with classic French dishes with the average spend around £30 including wine.
