The founders of Oklava in Shoreditch, Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie, are to open in Fitzrovia, their second site. The pair will launch Kyseri in May in Grafton Way, near Warren Street tube station.
The restaurant will feature modern Turkish plates and take inspiration from the Kayseri region as well as from Selin’s Turkish-Cypriot heritage. It will also focus on Turkish “pasta” and house-cured pastirma.
Dishes will be offered in a format that takes in snacks, starters, pasta, mains and desserts. Christie will use her extensive wine knowledge, which includes her solo project Linden Stores – a boutique wine shop and restaurant in Highbury Corner – to offer a list from small producers across Turkey and the Middle East.
