Chef, Nutshell

About Us:


Nutshell is a modern Iranian restaurant, set to open at the end of July in Covent Garden.

Iranian cuisine delivers a food as rich in flavour as it is in diversity and our vision is to modernise this centuries old cuisine whilst preserving its culinary beauty, heritage and traditions by adding modern twists and techniques and bringing this pioneering but somewhat overlooked gem of cuisine.

The open kitchen will dominate the atmosphere of the ground floor and customer interaction with the chefs during service will add to the fun as well as feed the professionalism required for a modern contemporary relaxed dining experience.

The menu is based on Iranian cuisine; however, the dishes will be presented in tune with today’s trends and served as small plates ideal for sharing. There will be a strong focus on seasonally, freshness, high quality and locally sourced products.

Nutshell offers a small plate sharing menu concept for a modern relaxed dining experience, giving the opportunity to fill every table with a multitude of colours, aromas and taste sensations in true Persian hospitality style.
