Stork Restaurant and Lounge has opened its doors in the heart of Mayfair,
bringing with it a fresh new concept that puts the spotlight on fusion dining at its finest – a
blend of modern British cooking with accents of West African and Eastern European cuisine.
Spread across two-floors, the 120-cover restaurant is gilded in stunning interiors and storkthemed
memorabilia; the brand icon which has inspired the core menu offering based on the
Stork’s migration pattern between Africa and Europe.
Harping back to their roots, co-owners Michael Adjovi Kalu and Nadina Grigoras bring with
them their own native influences and heritage from West Africa and Eastern Europe
respectively to ensure that the offering is truly authentic and of the highest standard.
At the helm in the kitchen is Head Chef Adebola Adeshina (Aubergine, Marcus Wareing) who
has worked hard to bring this fine fusion cuisine to life. Chef stays close to the seasons when
creating his menus, using the very best that each season has to offer as well as produce that is
super fresh and locally sourced. Taste and flavour are at the core of dish development and
with this, menu highlights include: on-the-grill Suya spiced Tomahawk steak served with fried
plantain, Lagos salad and aymase; Scottish Lobster, steamed Moi Moi in a rich lobster bisque
and an Eastern European inspired Pizza ‘Picinte’ made using Talima cheese.
For the discerning drinkers, a concise drink list featuring expertly-chosen wines, available also
by the glass, sit alongside an experimental list of cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
Signature must-tries include: The Stork Brought You – a mix of Zeca Cachaca, Coconut Milk &
Yuzu as well as Spiked Chapman – a refreshing concoction of Campari, Angostura Bitters,
Pomegranate, Orange, Soda Water.
Open 7 days a week, private dining and events are also readily available to host at Stork, up to
60 guests across each floor and weekly DJ sets hosted on the top floor only.
