Set to open in King’s Cross next month, the ten-story hotel will feature Isla restaurant and the Double Standard bar on the ground floor, both overseen by Rawson.

In addition to stints working for Gordon Ramsay, Claude Bosi, Bjorn van der Horst and Nuno Mendes, Rawson previously held the position of head chef at both Lucky Chip and at Pachamama.

With a menu focusing on British coastal cuisine, light proteins and seasonal produce, Isla will be at the core of Rawson’s gastronomic offering at The Standard Hotel.

Integrated into the hotel lobby, Isla will also provide guests with access to an outside space with a terrace and a retractable awning.

Inspired by the New York dive bar scene, Double Standard will offer a menu featuring craft beers, wine and cocktails alongside British pub classics.

Rawson said: “I’ve really enjoyed the challenge of creating menus which reflect the distinct personalities of Double Standard and Isla.

“Double Standard is going to be a more raucous, convivial space, so I’ve come up with a selection of elevated snacks perfect for sharing (or soaking up a few pints).

“Isla’s menu will be more delicate and much lighter – perfect for enjoying in the summer sunshine.”

The Standard London will open on the 11 July.
