This July, Swiss-inspired restaurant and bar, Heritage, will open on Soho’s Rupert Street.

As well as classic Swiss dishes of fondue, raclette, rösti and charbonnade, Heritage will offer impeccably executed French plates, characterised by the use of luxury ingredients such as wagyu beef and lobster.

Head Chef Aarik Persaud has a wealth of international experience, from Chewton Glen in the UK through to The Butchers Club in Hong Kong. The menu is based around sharing and prepared in an open theatre-style kitchen.

The 80-cover venue, designed by Kanvass, features an elegant modern interior that mixes industrial features with soft furnishings.

A combination of plush, copper-coloured leather banquettes, charcoal grey club chairs and high-level bar stools are matched with walnut panelling, reclaimed brickwork walls, exposed piping and dim lighting, to create a natural “chaleur”.

There will be a centralised bar accommodating 10 and a semi-private dining area seating up to 14 people for banquet-style feasting.

Julia Wilkinson, Portfolio & Group Restaurant Strategy Executive at Shaftesbury comments: “Heritage is a welcome addition to Shaftesbury’s growing food and beverage portfolio in Soho. This brand new and unique Swiss concept will join renowned restaurants Hovarda, The Palomar and XU, cementing Rupert Street’s reputation as a destination for independent and innovative dining experiences, neighbouring bustling Chinatown where the East meets the West.

"Swiss cuisine is under-represented in Central London and we are delighted to introduce Heritage as the latest addition to Soho’s international restaurant offer.”
