Assistant Restaurant Manager, Ikoyi
Ikoyi is a restaurant in central London founded by friends Iré Hassan-Odukale and Chef Jeremy Chan. We combine bold heat and umami to create our own perspective on seasonality.
Ikoyi builds its own spice-based cuisine around British micro-seasonality: vegetables slowly grown for flavour, sustainable, line-caught fish and aged native beef. Our kitchen aims to serve produce in its optimal state, harnessing as much flavour as possible while respecting the true nature of the ingredient.
The cuisine is a contrast of elegance and balance, married with the fearless enjoyment of the taste and flavours of the season. The restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star in October 2018 and described by the Michelin inspectors as ‘one of the most innovative and original restaurants to open in the capital in recent times’.
