Following a recent refurbishment, the much-loved Knightsbridge neighbourhood restaurant - Joe’s Cafe (located within fashion brand JOSEPH’s Sloane Street store), will relaunch on 25 June, with a new look, new head chef and an internationally-inspired menu.
The restaurant, which originally opened in 1984, is renowned across London for its modern European dishes. Under the direction of new head chef Anupam Som, who has previously worked at Michelin-starred Quilon, the menu will now take inspiration from cultures and cuisines around the world, as well as serving some of Joe’s signature dishes.
This creativity is still evident in the restaurant today, with chef Anu offering an exciting and innovative menu, alongside some of Joe’s signature dishes that have been the draw of loyal customers for the last 35 years - including Joe’s tumeric risotto, the restaurant’s world-famous take on a classic risotto.
The new menu includes starters such as ‘Marinated Heritage beetroot, textures of honey peppers & grilled goat’s cheese’ and ‘Smoked salmon, avocado, olive oil crostini & dressed leaves’. More innovative dishes include ‘King prawns marinated in cashews & green chutney with samosa chaat’, and ‘Green pea falafel with spiced fruit salad’ - all ideal for a light lunch to be enjoyed with a glass of wine.
Main dishes are also internationally-inspired, ranging from ‘Lemon butter braised sea bass with saffron crushed parsnips’ to ‘Chermoula-marinated tiger prawns with couscous & baba ghanoush’. The menu also includes a selection of seasonal pasta dishes and side salad options.
Joe’s Cafe is a sleek, stylish restaurant with its finger still on the London fashion foodie pulse, after more than 30 years in business.
The JOSEPH fashion empire was started in 1972 by the late entrepreneur Joseph Ettedgui, who opened Joe’s Cafe at the Sloane Street store as an extension of his creative clothing concept. The hot spot fast became known as the place to see fashion industry icons, gathering to share their ideas and inspiration outside the constraints of an office, as well as celebrities and West London socialites
