Jolene

OPENED 67 DAYS AGO

Newington Green welcomes a new bakery and restaurant, Jolene.

Jolene is the latest venture by Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim and David Gingell, the dynamic duo behind London favourites Westerns Laundry and Primeur. Here, they’ve partnered with farmer Andy Cato to source unique grains from two carefully-selected farms in the UK (Goodwood, Sussex, and Priory Farm in Norfolk).

The Spot:

Jolene is a bakery-meets-café by day, and dining destination by night. This means the space is fitted with two big sharing tables, perfect for a casual bite to eat, while smaller tables and dimmed lighting set the tone for more intimate evenings.

The Food:

The vitamin-rich grains will be transformed into daytime delights like raisin breads, sausage rolls, madeleines, palmiers and cinnamon buns. Jolene takes a simple approach to dinner, serving grilled cod on the bone with olives and artichokes; T-bone with parmesan and rocket; and stuffed pasta. For dessert, there’s a choice of tarts, cheeses and a bread, apricot and butter pudding (the obvious winner).

The Drinks:

Jolene offers a small selection of natural wines, alongside beers, ciders and cocktails. If you’re looking for something healthier, there are plenty of fresh juices and house-fermented drinks too.

In a Nutshell:

With freshly baked goods and a daily changing menu of shareable plates, Jolene is likely to be busy at any time of the day. We’re just not entirely convinced on the name – how are you supposed to read Jolene without channeling your inner Dolly Parton…
