Bruno Loubet’s résumé includes some of the UK’s best restaurants including La Tante Claire, Head Chef at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saison, The Four Seasons, Bistrot Bruno and L’Odéon Bistrot Bruno Loubet opened in February 2010 at The Zetter Hotel in Clerkenwell, London. Returning to London after eight years living and working in Brisbane, Australia, Bruno brought his distinctive modern bistrot food to one of London’s leading boutique hotels, with great success.
Grain Store explores a different side to Bruno’s skill and creativity. There are no geographical boundaries to the influences that have inspired the eclectic menu – they are a culmination of Bruno’s extensive travels and the years dedicated to his beloved vegetable patch. Although many dishes have a meat or fish element, this menu gives vegetables equal billing, if not the starring role. Fermented, sprouting, pickled and smoked ingredients feature alongside the fresh and the seasonal.
Flavour above all else is king.
“This is the restaurant I have dreamt of opening for years and the time really feels right now. I love meat and could never give it up entirely, but the endless opportunities that focusing on vegetables allows me – the colours, flavours, layers and textures – are so exciting” - Bruno Loubet

Winner of Sustainable Restaurant of the year in 2014 this plant focused restaurant of mastermind Head Chef Bruno Loubet serves such delicious food they’ll have you swearing to go vegan. The seasonal menu is awash with cleverly cooked dishes from the Wild Mushroom Croquettes with Pine Needle Salt to the Rabbit Leg Dauphinoise. Secondary cuts, ancient grains and forgotten ingredients are king here and the creativity spills into the cocktails too. We dare you to go and not try the homemade Mead or our personal favourite, the Celeriac Bellini. They open their second outpost as Grainstore Unleashed at the Zetter Hotel later this month promising to take Grain Store style cooking ‘to another level’.
