At the beginning of 2019, Corbin & King will open Soutine on St John’s Wood High Street.
Similar in many ways to Colbert, the informal neighbourhood rendez-vous will take inspiration from the great boulevard cafés of Paris.
Located in an impressive period building, the front room and pavement will offer relaxed café and bar seating, leading to a slightly more formal space at the rear.
The restaurant design, led by Jeremy King and Shayne Brady of BradyWilliams, is heavily influenced by the area’s strong artistic heritage where the nearby St John’s Wood Art School, which subsequently became the Anglo-French Art Centre, was opened by returnees from the Parisian Art Community.
Celebrating this history, the space will evoke the Arts and Crafts Movement whilst taking visual cues from Edwardian architecture.
Soutine will become the ninth opening for Corbin & King, following the recently launched Café Wolseley at Bicester Village.
