Chef Lawrence Gomez, who started his career at the iconic The Ivy restaurant in West Street, draws on his 15 years’ experience working with some of London’s top restaurants, including Sexy Fish and Scott’s in Mayfair, and combines this with his Gambian heritage to bring exciting new flavours to the plate, which he calls “African fusion cuisine”:
“The concept for PAPA L’s KITCHEN and African fusion cuisine is to take modern British food and the classical dining experience and infuse them with high quality, fresh West African flavours to create an authentic social vibe.” Gomez explained.
“Post lockdown in London, connecting with friends and loved ones feels like a privilege not to be taken for granted, so my aim is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for people to bond over food again and enjoy an experience worth venturing out for.”
