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 an approachable seasonal menu featuring light proteins and a predominantly natural wine list. Isla’s name is inspired by Britain’s island geography and is ideal for long, lounging al fresco meals in the serene (covered) garden and elegant dining room.
Lounging al fresco

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
