Hospitality group Corbin and King will be opening its new restaurant Soutine on St John’s Wood High Street, London at the beginning of 2019.
Soutine will become the ninth opening for Corbin and King, following the recently launched Café Wolseley at Bicester Village.
The new site will take inspiration from boulevard cafés of Paris and is located in a period building. The front room and pavement area of the restaurant will offer “relaxed” café and bar seating, leading to a more formal space at the rear.
The restaurant design was led by Jeremy King and Shayne Brady of BradyWilliams and is influenced by the local area’s artistic heritage. The nearby St John’s Wood Art School, which subsequently became the Anglo-French Art Centre, was opened by returnees from the Parisian Art Community. Celebrating this history, Soutine will encapsulate the Arts and Crafts Movement which occurred in Britain between 1880 and 1920, as well as taking inspiration from Edwardian architecture.
Group co-founder, Jeremy King, said the new opening would be “bespoke” and not “the beginning of a chain”.
