"London's restaurant incubator and the designer Tom Dixon, have teamed up to launch a 40 seater in Ladbroke Grove.
The premise is to provide a platform for young start-up restaurants, to “demo” their ideas.
The project’s industry backers and mentors include MEAT Liquor founder Yianni Papoutsis, Moro cofounder Mark Sainsbury, Dishoom founder Shamil Thakrar and Flat Iron founder Charlie Carroll. Each start-up team has the support of Kitchenette’s panel of advisers, chef mentors, a ready-made front-of-house team, systems and suppliers, that mean the start-ups can concentrate on the food and menu.
Diners are invited to leave feedback and reviews, providing precious data that Kitchenetters can use to prove concept, raise money and accelerate opening up their own dream permanent site.
First up in the space is Pao Wow: light, modern Indian fare: from London-based Bombayite Anshu Ahuja, whose residency comes off the back of a summer trading with Street Feast and Kerb.
Future spots in Kitchenette's restaurant will go to New Orleans po’ boys, Japanese barbeque, with some spots still open for new applicants. Budding restaurateurs who wish to apply can apply to Kitchenette via a simple online application form.
