Spain’s Renowned Chef David Muñoz is Bringing the Heat to London This Fall

London’s culinary scene is about to get fierier!

The Edgy chef behind DiverXo and StreetXo in Madrid, David Muñoz is making his way to London’s Mayfair neighborhood this fall.

In November, there will be StreetXO restaurant for London locals and visitors to dine at to enjoy some of the fan-favorite dishes,like the kimchi croquetas with tuna steak and burnt butter, fried quail egg, shichimi-togarashi, or the steamed club sandwich with ricotta.

The Madrid StreetXO has been deemed the "Cirque du Soleil of gastronomy” by the New York Times.

Muñoz has big plans for the StreetXO concept and wants to open several locations around the world. So why did he pick London as the city to set up store no. 2? “After moving to London when I was 21 and spending five years working in restaurants like Nobu and Hakkasan, I feel like this is my second home,” said chef Muñoz in a press release. “I’m excited to bring a cooking style that I’ve really evolved in Madrid to London.”

Although the space is still in development, the restaurant décor will match Muñoz edgy look (he sports a badass Mohawk.) There will be “exposed pipework and salvaged fixtures from a container ship.”

So, London do you think the Muñoz concept will be a success? Taking a concept across international borders is no walk in the park. Read more
