Cottons Caribbean Restaurant and Rhum Shack has confirmed it will open a third site, in Notting Hill, this April.
With over 30 years’ experience of serving authentic Caribbean cuisine, the chain is promising to offer a real buzz in the area with its steel drum evenings and lively atmosphere. The bar will stock the largest rum collection in the UK, with more than 300 varieties available.
Laurent Desiree, an esteemed chef of French Guadeloupe origin, will be taking the reigns as executive head chef. She is set to bring a distinguished and colourful past to Cottons, including TV appearances on MasterChef UK and Caribbean.
The Cottons kitchen team will be further enhanced by head chef, Ross Sloane, who previously held 2AA Rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand at Kota Restaurant in Cornwall.
Sloane’s dishes will be ingredient-driven, sustainably sourced and foraged where possible. Fresh, organic flowers such as chive flowers and coriander flowers will be used within the dishes enhancing them both aesthetically and taste-wise, according to the chain.
Cotton’s Notting Hill is set to become the flagship for the group.
