ZELA

OPENED 79 DAYS AGO

Beloved Ibiza-born concept ZELA arrives at Covent Garden’s ME London Hotel.

Operated by MABEL Hospitality (of Spain’s sought-after restaurant TATEL) with investors like Cristiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadal, ZELA is definitely a place to see and be seen. This hot fine-dining restaurant also happens to be the creator of Meppon cuisine, which combines Mediterranean products with Japanese techniques.

The Spot:

Whether you’re a fan of its VIP partners or not, there’s no denying ZELA will manage to lure you in. The space is fitted with Spanish-style tiles, bamboo furniture and an abundance of greenery throughout, transporting you straight out of London to a tropical oasis.

The Food:

Marrying Mediterranean products with Japanese flavours, Michelin-starred chef Ricardo Sanz offers a menu of fresh fish and seafood dishes. Think plates of sushi, sashimi, and scallops, including butterfish nigiri with white truffle and scallops with Ibizan sobrasada. Meat lovers can take their pick of Iberico pork gyozas or 48-hour braised Wagyu teriyaki.

The Drinks:

Cocktails combine Asian and Mediterranean flavours too. Try the Santa Maria (sherry wine, homemade spie mix, tomato and basil), or the Harakiri (sake, lime, egg white, and shiso syrup). ZELA also offers a list of Spanish wines and premium sakes.

In a Nutshell:

It’s not often an entirely new cuisine hits London – ZELA is all set to make its mark on the city’s competitive culinary scene with an exotic menu and a vibrant ambiance to match.
