What they say:
Gonzalo Luzarraga has trained under Alain Ducasse and worked in some of the best restaurants in the world, and now the Michelin-starred chef is opening a restaurant in Fulham. Spread across three rooms of a Victorian house, RIGO' will be a celebration of cultures from around the world including from the chef's Italian heritage and his time spent at Ducasse's renowned Le Louis XV. There will also be tastes from South America, Asia and Russia, as the venue employs a 'kitchen without borders' concept and attempts to use little known ingredients and unusual flavours in cooking.
What we say:
With some of the world's best credentials under his toque blanche (chef's hat to you and me), Gonzalo Luzarraga knows his way around a kitchen. Which is great news for residents of West London as he brings his first restaurant to Fulham. With an open kitchen and three swanky dining rooms, RIGO' will be packing punches from all corners, especially the food. Dishes will include the likes of seven-year aged riso Acquerello, black garlic and sea anemone, and a sea urchin with quail's egg and fermented milk. Along with amazing dishes, the bar will be serving a rotational and seasonal list of cocktails, as well as stocking unusual bottles of wine from around the world.
