Salon in Brixton closes doors today after 10 years

Nicholas Balfe, Matthew Bushnell and Mark Gurney have announced the closure of their restaurant, Salon in Brixton Market.

Opening its doors in 2012, Salon has become known and loved for its seasonal and inventive dishes. With Nicholas at the helm, the kitchen has produced its contemporary British menus for nearly ten years.

The trio commented, “It is with a deep reluctance and heavy heart that we have decided to close Salon. It has been an incredible ten year journey for us and the team in Brixton.

'The market has provided us with a brilliant home, a space to develop our menus and host a whole range of diners - from locals to those further afield.

'Industry trading conditions continue to be more challenging than ever, unfortunately meaning we have had to make this difficult decision. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us over the years.'

The threesome's other London restaurants, Larry's in Peckham and Levan London, also in Peckham, remain open and trading as usual, as does the recently opened Holm in Somerset.
