Santo Remedio in Shoreditch to close after five months

Related tags: Mexico

Critically acclaimed Shoreditch restaurant Santo Remedio has been forced to close just five months after opening.

The Mexican street food venue was launched by Edson Diaz-Fuentes,​ former head of menu innovation at Wahaca, and his wife Natalie in March this year.

It received a wave of positive reviews from critics, with The Observer's Jay Rayner​ dubbing it ‘full of lightness and brightness, colour, punch and enthusiasm’.

But the founders announced today that they had been forced to close due to ‘problems outside their control’.

According to the restaurant’s Twitter account it has been closed for maintenance since 31 July due to ‘essential electrical works’.

However, the Diaz-Fuentes’ said they were planning to ‘start again’ with a new opening.

"We have been overwhelmed by the incredible support of all our customers – they embraced Santo Remedio immediately and that has been hugely flattering,” said Edson in a statement.

“It has been a joy welcoming people from not only London but the world and we look forward to doing this with our next venture."

Edson was born in Mexico City and trained at Casa Oaxaca, named one of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2014, under the tutelage of renowned chef Alejandro Ruiz.
