Renowned Chef Adejoke Bakare Unveils Second Chishuru Restaurant in Fitzrovia

Renowned head chef Adejoke Bakare is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated opening of the second iteration of her acclaimed restaurant, Chishuru.

After the closure of the original Brixton location, Bakare has revealed plans for her new establishment, situated in the heart of Fitzrovia.

Marked on the calendar for September 18, the reopening promises to bring back the beloved cassava fritters and beef shin broth that garnered widespread acclaim.

The new restaurant, located in Fitzrovia, boasts a seating capacity for 54 diners, aiming to provide an intimate and delightful culinary experience.

Delightful Culinary Offerings

Chishuru’s hallmark set menus for lunch and dinner will be available, with prices set at £35 and £65 respectively.

Bakare, alongside her business partner Matt Paice, has expressed their enthusiasm for this upcoming venture, stating, “We’re thrilled to announce that we finally have an opening date for our restaurant in Fitzrovia.

We’ll be trading for lunch and dinner Monday to Friday.”

A Culinary Trailblazer

Chishuru initially made waves in Brixton back in 2020, quickly accumulating positive reviews and accolades.

Renowned food critic Jimi Famurewa from the Standard recently included the restaurant in his top 10 establishments in London.

Famurewa praised Bakare’s culinary prowess, highlighting her ability to infuse dishes with “barrelling spice and unforgettable, multilayered flavor.”

Elevating West African Cuisine

Chishuru has played a significant role in elevating West African cuisine within London’s culinary scene, shedding light on a rich culinary tradition that was previously underrepresented.

The forthcoming menu at the Fitzrovia location promises a delightful array of dishes that reflect Bakare’s culinary expertise.

A Glimpse into the Menu

Among the offerings are moi moi, a delectable bean cake served with trout roe and a duck egg sauce; mbongo tchobi, featuring cod fillet with spiced black sauce and wilted greens; and egusi, a creative dish comprising grilled cabbage stuffed with caramelized shallots, utazi leaf, and a wild watermelon seed sauce.
