Iranian food looks set to continue its ascendence in the capital in 2019 with this new Covent Garden spot.

The cooking at Nutshell comes from chef Leonardo Pereira, who enjoyed a five-year stint at superstar Copenhagen restaurant Noma before a more recent turn at two Michelin-starred The Greenhouse. Teaming up with husband-and-wife duo Mohammad Paknejad and Marwa Alkhalaf, Pereira will be serving up Iranian cuisine that celebrates British produce.

Leonardo Pereira has spent nearly five years working in Noma and was most recently at The Greenhouse, so we’re expecting big things from his upcoming restaurant.

The Wonder List favourites, Raw scallop and Iranian caviar, Overnight coal baked squash, barberries and saffron curds

Goat leg, grilled onions, buttermilk and coriander, Pomegranate, goat’s milk and pistachio

It’s a two storey restaurant – with table seating upstairs and counter dining on the ground floor with contemporary Iranian pop-art on the walls.

Opening in Spring 2019 – Enquire HERE for the soft opening.
