Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers has opened his second restaurant venture at Covent Garden.
The 1,700 sq ft Parisian-inspired Story Cellar is located at 17 Neal’s Yard, Seven Dials, and welcomes Stephen Naylor as head chef.
The restaurant is a conceptual continuation of Sellers’ first restaurant, Restaurant Story, and will specialise in rotisserie chicken as well as a number of reimagined classic dishes.
Story Cellar also features an large walk-in wine cellar in which customers can store their own personal wine collections to be catered to by the restaurant’s team of sommeliers.
Customers at the 50-cover restaurant can choose to dine besides the walk-in cellar, or sit at the counter-style seating that looks out towards Neal’s Yard.
Michelle McGrath, executive director at Shaftesbury Capital, said: “It is a real testament to the strength of the food offer within Covent Garden that innovative and exciting chefs such as Tom Sellers, with two Michelin stars, has opened his new restaurant in the heart of Neal’s Yard. Story Cellar will contribute to the destination’s culinary community and all-day, high-quality restaurant offering.”
Story Cellar’s arrival follows the recent news that Crudo Cevicheria is set to launch at Seven Dials later in the year, opening a 362 sq ft space at 36 Monmouth Street.
