Bohemia Restaurant reopened Saturday 20th June and in doing so became the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Great Britain to be open and able to welcome diners back.
Thanks to its location in self-governing Jersey, where alfresco eating has been allowed since May and from this week all restaurants have been allowed to reopen with social distancing measures in place and in adherence with government guidelines*.
Owner Lawrence Huggler comments: “We have spent this last week preparing our new season menus and bringing the team up to speed on the new operating procedures. We are very excited to welcome our customers back and were surprised when we realised, we will be the only Michelin-starred restaurant open in Great Britain. It really brings home how tough the lockdown has been and still is on the hospitality industry in particular. We hope it won’t be long before many more restaurants across the UK can reopen as we are this weekend and we can all start the road to recovery.”
Bohemia Restaurant has held a Michelin-star for 16 years. Now lead by Head Chef Callum Graham, he and the team are proud to showcase the amazing local and seasonal ingredients from Jersey including lobster, crab, oysters, Jersey Royals, Jersey dairy, in his modern-European dishes and innovative tasting menus.
With the team back in the kitchen, Bohemia will re-launch with a new summer menu, perfected by Chef Graham whilst the restaurant has only been open for ‘Bohemia at Home’ home-dining kits. Launching in true Bohemia style, the first weekend will only offer guests the exciting seven-course tasting menu, made using local ingredients sourced that day.
The following week, guests may once again choose from the à la carte, a three-course set lunch menu, or one of the tasting menus. Stand-out new dishes include heritage tomato pressing with local crab salad, consommé and nasturtium sorbet; roasted saddle of lamb and braised lamb shoulder, with artichoke and Chardonnay puree, barigoule artichokes, black trompette mushrooms and wild garlic; and peach and almond tart with lemon verbena.
Bohemia is located at The Club Hotel & Spa, which was also allowed to re-open this week, creating the perfect escape for islanders, to enjoy before the tourists return to Jersey in July.
