Bringing culinary innovation to the Greenwich Peninsula is Stevie Parle’s new venture Craft London. Spread over three floors, Craft London is a partnership with Tom Dixon and designed by Design Research Studio. While the small cafe and coffee roaster on the ground floor has been open since October 2014, the new restaurant, cocktail bar and shop opens April 27. The main focus of the new business will be on high quality production, with much of the food supplying the restaurant created on site. Activities at Craft London include coffee roasting, fish smoking, bee keeping, meat curing, vegetable fermentation and the creation of a kitchen garden. The restaurant on the second floor offers an a la carte menu, a six-course menu for £65, a set lunch menu for £28 and a pre-show menu, with starters on the a la carte including Langoustine and British Lardo, and mains such as Sirloin with Marrowbone bread sauce and Lovage liquor. Ruth Spivey who works with Stevie at his other restaurant Rotorino has created Craft London’s wine list, while upstairs cocktails can be enjoyed whilst admiring panoramic views of the o2, the peninsula’s garden meadow and the Thames. Marking one of the first independent destinations to open in the area, Craft London is bound to become one of the o2’s most popular spots for a drink or meal pre, and post-show. –Emily Cater
