Chef of the Year (at the Young British Foodies awards 2015) Adam Rawson, left British-Peruvian restaurant Pachamama and is in charge at the restaurant at the hugely anticpated Standard hotel - working under the creative chef best known for her stint as executive chef at Mission Chinese New York.
Adam takes up residence of the ground floor of the ten-storey hotel, launching two distinct spaces: Isla and Double Standard - each with entirely separate menus and design created by long-standing Standard collaborator Shawn Hausman.
All-day restaurant Isla offers laid-back, elegant dining from a seasonal menu of coastal cuisine - with a predominantly natural wine list. Integrated with the lobby, Isla also gently spills out to the covered garden terrace nestled in a residential area of Kings Cross.
The former Camden Council building (dubbed 'the Egg Box') features an three-storey roof extension, inspired by the nearby Swiss Cottage Library and house a rooftop bar, restaurant with a terrace and suites alongside 250 bedrooms.
Check out also Double Standard - the ground floor's most boisterous space - with a menu inspired by traditional pub classics and NYC dive bar food, the stand alone bar serves craft beers, wine and classic cocktails alongside Adam’s menu running late into the night
