One of London's most influential restaurants of recent decades, St. John is set to open its first international location in Culver City, Los Angeles, in 2020.
Currently with two locations in the capital, its first on St John Street in Smithfield, Farringdon, which opened in October 1994 by Trevor Gulliver, Fergus Henderson, and Jon Spiteri, alongside a Bread & Wine eatery in the popular Spitalfields area, St. John has long made a name for itself in an adaptive British restaurant, often best known for its nose-to-tail philosophy.
The former head chef of St. John's in Smithfield, Jonathan Woolway will lead the expansion in America which has been there-years in the making. The news comes as a surprise to some, with such a jump away from its original home in London, highlighted by the fact that LA's climate, produce, and energy is much more closely aligned to southern Europe than other leading US cities.
The new opening comes in October 2020 and will be located in the new Platform LA development, a hub of fashion, culinary talent, and creative entrepreneurs. Find out more about St. John over on its website.
