David Munoz, one of Spain’s top chefs, is poised to bring his acclaimed restaurant StreetXo to the heart of Mayfair later this year.
The street food-inspired venue is scheduled to open in June and will be the first venture that the maverick chef has embarked on outside of his homeland.
A spokesperson for the company today said a kitchen contractor haDn’t yet been appointed, but building work is due to commence in May.
The focal point of the restaurant will be a central open kitchen with chefs interacting one-on-one with guests, cooking and serving up food. The venue will also have a large bar with an inventive cocktail selection.
Munoz’s unique representation of street food is an evolution of his travels from the London restaurant scene, where he trained for many years, to South East Asia and everywhere in between.
Munoz said the menu will change regularly and feature 12-14 dishes, while the “energy will flow” between the kitchen and bar.
As well as StreetXo, Munoz is chef and creator of DiverXo in Madrid, which boasts three Michelin stars.
The 33-year-old is the youngest Spaniard to win the top Michelin ranking and all of the restaurant’s culinary delights are produced from a kitchen that measures just 30 square metres.
