Chef Damian Wawrzyniak to oversee London's Salt Flakes restaurant
Chef Damian Wawrzyniak is returning to London to oversee the operations at Twickenham restaurant Salt Flakes from this month.

The Polish chef is to take charge of a revamp at the south London restaurant, which opened in 2017 and offers ‘modern world cuisine with a French touch’.

It comes after Wawrzyniak closed his first London-based restaurant, Jan in Clapham,​ last summer after less than a month following a rent hike.

A spokesperson confirmed Wawrzyniak will remain ‘fully committed’ to his House of Feasts restaurant near Peterborough while overseeing the overall operation at Salt Flakes, including food redevelopment and a redesign.

The chef’s changes will see meat smoked on site and the introduction of a new a la carte menu, with dishes including braised beef ribs with hoisin sauce; wild mushroom pappardelle; and chocolate fondant with vanilla cream.

A new lounge bar will open on 19 January, offering drinks and sharing platters.

“I’m excited to add my stamp to the menu with sharing platters, sumptuous mains, a large vegan and vegetarian option and of course, a real focus on seasonal, sustainable produce,” says Wawrzyniak.

Wawrzyniak will host a six-course tasting evening showcasing the new menu on 19 February at Salt Flakes. Tickets are limited and cost £45pp.
