Following his success with Street Feast, Dominic Cools-Lartigue is turning his attention to East London and a new mixed use venuecalled The Tramshed Project.
Based in a building which formerly played host to Mark Hix’s Tramshed Restaurant, the new venue is part restaurant, part gallery and part events space: with a rolling programme of acitvities including a Friday night jazz club.
Cools-Lartigue, who made his name transforming London’s night market scene, will bring his considerable knowledge and expertise to bear on the venue’s food offering, which will see a series of kitchens set up in the venue’s main hall.
And what a line up of foodie talent Cools-Lartigue has assembled at the Tramshed Project! There’s Zoe Adjonyoh from Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, James Cochran from the acclaimed North London restaurant 12:51, and Grill Kings Andrew Clarke and Daniel Watkins.
Adjonyoh will be cooking up her now signature brand of Ghanaian cuisine, Cochran will be offering up a tasty selection of jerk infused treats, and Clarke and Watkins will be grilling up some tantalising smoked meats and plant-based goodies.
The food is not the only major attraction at the venue, however. The Tramshed Project will also play host to its very own art collection, in a massive 2,000 square foot art gallery in the basement. The art will come courtesy of the Zabludowicz Collection, a vast collection of contemporary art brought together by art collectors Anita and Poju Zabludowicz.
Cools-Lartigue was keen to emphasis his community based approach to the new venue when he spoke to the Evening Standard: “Among the many lessons of lockdown, we learned the power of purpose. We heard countless tales of communities coming together to do good and help their neighbours in need. That same spirit of togetherness is at the heart of our approach to opening The Tramshed Project.
We’re lucky enough to have inherited such a wonderful space, and I’m happy that we can share it with Londoners looking for a safe place to work and eat during the day.”
The Tramshed Project opens on Friday the 9th of October 2020 at 32 Rivington St, London. More information about the venue can be found here.
