The Fat Duck duo Jonny Lake and Isa Bal to open London Bridge restaurant, Trivet

Jonny Lake and Isa Bal, who worked together for over twelve years at The Fat Duck Group, announce that their new restaurant, wine bar and cellar will be named Trivet.

The restaurant is scheduled to open this autumn in the Snowsfields Yard development in Bermondsey. Trivet will be an
informal, high-quality dining restaurant utilising the finest ingredients and wines and will aim to deliver
an unrivalled taste experience.

“The name Trivet came about organically,” says Jonny Lake. “A trivet is an age-old cooking utensil – elevating
pots over an open fire or providing a resting spot for dishes and pots.”

“Trivet implies balance and warmth which forms part of our vision and values for the restaurant, as well as our
working relationship.”

“Throughout the many years we have worked together, Jonny and I have always been in pursuit of inspired culinary

excellence. At Trivet, we will showcase our explorations of ingredients, dishes and drinks from different regions around
the world,” says Isa Bal.

“The design and experience of the restaurant will also be inspired from our travels, juxtaposing
Nordic functionality with the warmth of the Mediterranean and a dose of fun.”
