This summer will see the anticipated arrival of the Mondrian Shoreditch London, with it, a new foodie destination – Chef Dani García’s first culinary concept in the UK, BIBO.
BIBO will be three Michelin-Starred Chef Dani García’s fifth restaurant for the concept, joining BIBO Marbella, Madrid, Tarifa, Doha and Málaga.
“It is an honour to open our first UK based restaurant alongside our amazing partners Accor and the Reuben Brothers, and we are excited to establish the property as the heart of the Shoreditch food scene. I have always been fascinated by the vibrant energy of London and look forward to seeing our most iconic dishes such as the “oxtail brioche" and “creamy ham croquettes” being enjoyed by this new public”, said Dani García.
Fans of BIBO can expect their favourites to be on the menu including the Oxtail Brioche, the Russian Salad with Quail Eggs, and Freshly Made Guacamole. The drinks menu uses typical Andalusian drinks as a reference but always giving them that special BIBO touch. Among them are sangria (with the choice of red or white wine), “Rebujito” and “El agua de Sevilla” / The water of Seville. There will also be different vermouth references, a drink that traditionally accompanies the aperitif and which socially marks the beginning of the weekend.
Seating a total of 120 guests, including 20 on the Spanish Courtyard and 12 in the Private Dining room on the floor below. At the central island bar, a statement mirrored raft and globe light are housed within a copper rod structure, a nod to the hot air balloon which features in other BIBO restaurants globally. The casual high tables have been designed for tapas service, situated in close proximity to the kitchen and with glass tapas displays. Outside, the Spanish Courtyard offers a Spanish haven in the heart of London, with bold red walls, hanging plants and wooden fans beneath a retracting glass roof.
