The team behind this brand new restaurant are famous for traditional Spanish rice dishes, and it’s what they’ll be delivering to Chelsea too.
Chelsea’s new fine dining Spanish restaurant The Campaner is coming to The Chelsea Barracks at the start of May. And as we don’t like to have time restrictions when it comes to when we are eating, we are pleased to hear that The Campaner is going to be an all day dining affair. From having a peek at the information we have, it’s looking like this new restaurant is going to be popular for two main reasons. The food and the setting.
The team behind Martinez in Barcelona are in charge of the menu. The coastal restaurant is big on rice dishes, famed for charcoal fired dishes and traditional cuisine that uses seasonal produce from the land and sea to create impressive food. You just need to have a look at their instagram account to see the beautiful things that the kitchen turns out- think striking squid ink paella, platters of thinly sliced hams and dainty lemon pies. So how’s that going to translate to Chelsea?
The team are planning on bringing over some of their signatures like the monkfish and lobster casserole; their unmistakeable Spanish flavours and rice will certainly be featuring heavily on the menu. But they’ll be using some of our top local suppliers (Wright Bros, Natoora, Neal’s Yard, HG Walter and Walter and Son are all lined up to work with The Campaner) to make sure they are keeping in step with seasonal produce here. As we mentioned, it will be an all day dining affaire, so you’ll find pastries and bakery goods in the morning, but if you want to really push the boat out go full Med you’ve got to get the jamon and caviar with your cappuccino.
We also mentioned the setting as being a big draw to the restaurant. They’ll be taking the award-winning space as designed by architect Ben Pentreath, which boasts big windows for maximum light if dining inside as well as a cloistered walkway which will act as a sheltered spot for alfresco eating when the temperatures increase.
There’s a lot to get excited about with The Campaner. We are already dreaming about sipping on the lightest of rosés in the sunshine whilst waiting for our paella.
