The owner of a sustainable restaurant in Surrey is creating a second site three miles down the road following the success of his first venture.
Reza Amini, owner of Henry’s Kitchen, plans to open an independent eco-friendly and sustainable restaurant in Esher later this month.
It will be called Henry’s Grill and feature locally-sourced ingredients and suppliers.
The full kitchen plans are not entirely clear, however a rotisserie charcoal grill is understood to be the centrepiece of the operation, bringing flavour to the restaurant’s choice of meats and seafood.
Amini told the Get Surrey website: “It’s important that everyone does what they can to save the planet, so I wanted to create a second sustainable restaurant in Elmbridge borough. I am so pleased to be returning to Esher High Street as it’s where I started my restaurant career many years ago."
The restaurant’s interior walls will be made from reclaimed timber from Farnham, the tables from recycled wood and the bar from recycled glass. Menus will be printed on recycled paper and light fittings will be energy-saving LEDs.
Henry’s Kitchen is a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) and the new venture will apply for the same accreditation once it has opened.
