Wild At The Cross- Now Open

Today sees the official launch of Wild, acclaimed London nightclub The Cross’s new restaurant.  Named ‘Wild’ as a nod to the late night debauchery the nightclub is famed for, the 55-cover restaurant serves a carefully curated Mediterranean menu designed for sharing.

Having built a cult reputation among the London dance music scene between 1993 and 2007, The Cross reopened after 15 years in its new guise in September 2022. A six-story destination for guests to drink, dine, and dance the night away, Wild is the perfect addition to the evening’s entertainment.

Located on the first floor, the restaurant serves a produce-led, seasonally changing menu from Head Chef  Luis Diego Loria Ortega, previously of Brasserie Blanc Threadneedle Street and The Ivy St John’s Wood. Hero dishes on the menu include Croquetas Bravas (filled with Jamon Iberico and Monte Enebro goat’s cheese), Grilled King Prawns (garnished with red chilli, garlic, parsley, anchovies, and fresh lime), Roast Hispi Cabbage (garnished with pomegranate, tahini, and hazelnut dukkah), Roast Wild Sea Bass (with shaved fennel salad, marsh samphire, and Amalfi lemon), and Spring Suffolk Lamb Cutlets (served with smoked aubergine, pine nuts, tashkin mint, and rose harissa).

Wild is a destination in its own right as well as the perfect appetiser to an evening of dancing; the ground floor is a characterful room adorned with reclaimed timber beams, contrasted with a luxurious collection of bespoke furniture, allowing guests to relax and enjoy cocktails in a cool, comfortable and intimate space. Signature tipples include a Coconut Margarita, a Pandan Whisky Sour and the Pecan Pie Old Fashioned, an intriguing take on a classic but with The Cross’ inimitable twist.

Gemma Reilly, co-founder of The Cross comments: ‘We’re hugely excited to officially open Wild at The Cross – the restaurant offers our guests the perfect way to kick off an evening of drinking, dancing, and dining. We’ve created a space where diners can relax in a comfortable, beautiful, and inclusive setting, before carrying on the party with great music across our dance spaces.’
