Our Guest Chef Series returns on the 18th of July as we welcome acclaimed chef Leandro Carreira to our Soho kitchen. Get close to the action as Leandro takes over the grill with his unique approach to seafood.
Born and raised in Leiria, Portugal, Leandro began his career working in restaurants in Lisbon before travelling around the Basque country and the Middle East, eventually settling in London, a city he now calls home. Leo started out at Andoni Luis Aduriz’s famed Mugaritz, before coming to London and working at Nuno Mendes’ Viajante as Head Chef, and later at Lyle’s and Koya.
A year-long residency at Climpson’s Arch in Hackney’s London Fields in 2016 saw Leandro take a break from fine-dining, where he showcased the ingredients and traditions of regional Portugal through a new lens. Londrino, the Portuguese word for Londoner, is Leandro’s first restaurant, which launched in December 2017. Leandro's cooking style here observes the flavours, traditions and ingredients from his native Portugal, through the eyes of a chef that now calls London home.
Described last year by Master Chef judge Amol Rajan as a ‘Portuguese orchestra melding so many different chords into a just-so harmony,’ be sure to expect big flavours and creative twists on classic british seafood as Leandro culminates his culinary influences at his July Guest Chef takeover.
Bookings now open for Wednesday 18th July.
