Kudu Collective to open Little Kudu this June as Smokey Kudu moves to Chelsea

Husband and wife duo, Amy Corbin and Patrick Williams, are excited to announce the opening of their third restaurant concept, a South African inspired tapas-style restaurant called Little Kudu, this June.

Following a dramatic refurbishment, Little Kudu will take over the space which is currently home to the Peckham-based group’s much-loved cocktail bar Smokey Kudu, to become a contemporary and fun counter dining restaurant with an open kitchen.

Similar to the group’s two other restaurants, Kudu and Kudu Grill, Chef Patron Patrick will be bringing his South African roots to the fore at Little Kudu, alongside South African-born Head Chef Chace Wagenhauser, who is currently Sous Chef at Kudu.

The menu, featuring small plates priced from £4-£23, will include; the Little Kudu Loaf with Cape Malay butter; Smoked peri-peri mussels; Braaibroodjie (South African Grilled Cheese Sandwich) with smoked tomato chutney and a Ham Hock terrine with biltong scratchings.

The concise 30-bin wine list will showcase the most sought after wines from South Africa.

Smokey Kudu will reopen at Rixo’s brand new flagship store on the King’s Road in Chelsea this April.

The 30-cover cocktail bar will be open Monday through to Saturday (1-7pm) and Sundays (2-6pm) and will be open for reservations and walk-ins.

The cocktail list will include a mix of brand new and Smokey Kudu favourites (£12-£14) including the Kudu Pear (Pear Cognac, Ginger Liqueur, Green Apple, Cardamom Bitters and Citrus) Kudu Colada (Pineapple Juice, Amarula, Creme of Coconut, Supasuwa); and a small selection of sparkling, red and white wines.

Kudu Collective also has Kudu Grill in Peckham and Curious Kudu, private dining room and events space.
