Levantine restaurant Ceru has opened a new restaurant in London’s Queensway having vacated its Soho site earlier this year.

The restaurant has 68 covers including five counter seats, 12 sofa seats and eight bar seats.

Ceru’s menu contains nearly 100 ingredients and more than 20 spices. Menu items include a selection of dips such as houmous, fadi (roasted courgette, garlic, yoghurt and tahini) and hamara (red pepper, walnuts and pomegranate molasses) served with freshly baked pita bread; slow roasted lamb shoulder with pomegranate sauce; and courgette and feta fritters.

On weekends, it will serve a brunch menu featuring dishes of Turkish eggs; spicy lamb hash with a fried egg and Greek pita bread and its signature kahvalti made with Merguez sausages, grilled halloumi and baked eggs in a spicy tomato sauce.

The accompanying wine list comprises wines taken from across the eastern Mediterranean.

The group, which started out with a venue in South Kensington, closed its Soho restaurant earlier this year​ citing the pandemic and an unsympathetic landlord.

“It was sadly a perfect storm of a landlord that was on a different planet to us and COVID-19. They actually tried to put up the rent by 50% as the pandemic hit," said co-founder Barry Hilton at the time.
