Soho is renowned for its brilliant food, terrific cocktails and an even better atmosphere.
Now, there is a new player in town, and they are about to combine all three of those elements to create a unique dining experience.
The restaurant in question is Bantof and it is located in Windmill Lane in Soho. Michelin chef Asimakis Chaniotis is behind the venture, which plans to bring a relaxed, artistic atmosphere to fine dining.
In a statement released on behalf of the restaurant, they set out this ethos. It read: “Bantof’s menu features a series of signature dishes designed to be enjoyed via tasting plates supporting the restaurant’s relaxed and collaborative vision”.
The location is also going to give a platform to artists, with those behind the restaurant keen to put an emphasis on all of the elements that make Soho the fantastic place it is.
They added: ““As well as serving delicious food made from fresh, seasonal ingredients, guests can expect an ever-changing rotation of art exhibitions curated by the restaurant’s team themselves.
“With shows featuring both upcoming talent and more established names within the creative scene, Bantof provides not only somewhere for people to eat great food but also somewhere to come and experience art in all its forms”.
We all love an Intagrammable cocktail and Bantof is set to have those too, with Jack Sotti’s SuperNacular curating that menu.
Once again, these will be created to reflect the location: “To celebrate the area’s unique character, Bantof & SuperNacular have created a series of cocktails titled “Soho Stories”.
“The novel cocktail collection showcases the characters and elements of Soho that make the central village unique.”
Bantof will be officially opening in early September, but lucky diners will be able to attend preview events in August.
