A south east London restaurant serving “fuss-free food” has been newly awarded two Michelin stars

Trivet in Bermondsey was one of six restaurants across the UK which received two Michelin stars from the Michelin Guide this week.

The Michelin Guide has published a list of newly awarded restaurants following the Michelin Guide Ceremony Great Britain & Ireland 2024, which took place on February 5.

The ceremony crowned one three-star restaurant, six two-star restaurants and 18 one-star restaurants across the UK.

First opened in 2019, Trivet serves a mix of dishes from around the world, curated by chefs Jonny Lake and Isa Bal to celebrate the diversity of food.

The pair bring their love of food to create “fuss-free” dishes, according to the Michelin Guide, using locally sourced ingredients inspired from flavours across the glove.

The food, prepared in an open plan kitchen, is cooked on an iron tripod deriving from that “age-old cooking” style.

The menu is a collaborative effort made by Jonny and Isa, taking a “simple idea” and incorporating different flavours and textures to create a new take on a dish.

The restaurant wine list features 350 wines ranging from countries such as Turkey, France, Georgia and America.

The business was praised by the guide for its “perfectly balanced” combinations and “flavours”.

The restaurant was also praised for its “personable wine service” with a curated list featuring wines from “unexplored regions”.

Earlier last month Trivet was also named in SquareMeal’s Top 100 London Restaurants for 2024, alongside six other south east London restaurants marking another success for Trivet.

In a post on X, The Michelin Guide offered congratulations to the business, writing: “Trivet makes the leap to Two MICHELIN Stars, thanks to bold, punchy cooking that packs bags of flavour into every mouthful.”
