Honey & Co. gets a new location and design

The celebrated Levantine restaurant moves to a Studio Found-designed Bloomsbury site.

26/08/2022 2 min read

The widely-acclaimed Middle Eastern restaurant Honey & Co. has shifted from its Warren Street site to a grander, Studio Found-designed space in Bloomsbury.

Founded by Israeli duo Itamar Srulovic and Sarit Packer, what was once a standalone dining destination has, over a decade, blossomed into something of a culinary institution, complete with cookbooks, a podcast and an online store – as well as a Great Portland Street grill joint and a bijou physical grocery shop.

Srulovic and Packer wanted the Bloomsbury location to feel both ‘homely and aspirational’, personally sourcing vintage furnishings and art, with Packer handmaking all of the restaurant’s pottery, plates and jugs.

For Studio Found, the emphasis was on retaining as much as was already present at the site, including the distinctive terrazzo shopfront, popular with locals. This façade provided an inspirational jumping-off point for the interiors – informing colour and material choices. Textured plastered walls provide a backdrop for oak and walnut joinery, while tactile woven upholstery and handmade Zellige tiles in a subtle green convey comfort and approachability. The patterned floor, meanwhile, nods to the iconic tiling at Warren Street, but is rendered in a different colourway – a meeting of the brand’s history and its future.

“It was a privilege to work with Itamar and Sarit to bring their original Honey & Co concept to a new home and neighbourhood,” says Ed Plumb, founder and design director at Studio Found. “It marks the start of an exciting chapter and we enjoyed the collaborative design process. As with all our projects, we started by breaking down the brief and exploring the themes and words that Itamar and Sarit had given us whilst analysing the site. We were all keen to reuse and restore what the site already offered and enhance with some new materials and pieces. Together we have brought an original and interesting food destination to Bloomsbury.”
