Chef Stevie Parle set to open third restaurant, Craft London

Chef Stevie Parle is set to open his third London restaurant, Craft London, on 1 October this year.

The Greenwich site will begin as a café-roastery, and open as a full restaurant and bar in early 2015.

It will focus on production, and aim to work with modern craftspeople on processes such as coffee roasting, smoking, meat curing, kitchen gardening, and fermentation.

A collaboration with designer Tom Dixon, whose furniture showroom initially formed the ground floor space of Parle's existing Ladbroke Grove restaurant, the Dock Kitchen, the new venue has been designed by Design Research Studio, and will form part of the 60,000 sq m Greenwich Peninsula development.

The Dock Kitchen opened in 2008, and serves experimental dishes with an international twist, while Parle's other site is Rotorino, in Dalston, which opened in April this year. Its menu fuses British and Italian cooking in a relaxed style, and there is also a wine bar offering a 40-strong selection of vintages.

Parle's career has also included training at the River Café, Moro and at Petersham Nurseries, and he has famously been cooking professionally since age 15. He now also works as a cookery writer, presenter and journalist.
