Wild food pioneer, Native, will join Browns at its new flagship boutique in Mayfair this Spring.
Known for its offering of established and next generation design talent, the partnership will see co-founders Ivan Tisdall-Downes and Imogen Davis launch the first of its kind for Browns, a restaurant centred around sustainable dining.
Once open, the restaurant will continue to champion seasonal produce and ethical dining through a selection of innovative yet casual sharing plates, natural wines and foraged cocktails.
Native has worked closely with Browns and respected architectural firm, Red Deer, to guide this one of a kind space, which is filled with pieces from artisans of sustainable design from across the UK.
Joe Knowlden, most recently from Hide Mayfair, will join as Head Chef, with Tamsin Hurton at front of house having spent a decade working in the capital’s top restaurants. Together they will work with Ivan and Imogen to continue the team’s commitment to British wild produce and foraged focused cooking.
“We are excited to be embarking on this new chapter of Native in partnership with Browns and it’s been a delight to see our vision for a closed-loop restaurant supported at every step” says co-founder Imogen. “Our ethos is reflected not only through the menu, but also through the thoughtful, sustainable design which reflects our ideals whilst harnessing the talents of innovative producers across the UK.” Adds head chef Ivan.
