Humo Restaurant

Fire dining at HUMO is based on a philosophy of casual elegance, we serve gastronomy grounded and inspired by the art of grilling over different species of wood with the highest quality of seasonal British produce and combining influences from Japan.

For us, the flickering of the flames as wood catches the fire has always been memorising. Since we were children we have been fascinated with the explosions of energy; the crackling sound, the colours, the movement of the flames and the shadows of the smoke. Perhaps it’s the security and peace this brings to us or maybe it’s the unpredictability and power it has. But we believe, in one way or another, we are all enchanted by fire.

Amid the throng of new restaurants around London, all touting exciting concepts and innovative angles, few can successfully cut through the noise. Mayfair’s latest arrival, however, has done so triumphantly. Bringing a fresh new take on wood-fired cooking, HUMO takes creative cooking seriously. The kitchen runs without gas or electricity; chefs cook on a four-metre-long wooden grill stretching across the middle of the restaurant. Chef Miller Prada cut his teeth under the watchful eye of Endo Kazutoshi and has efficiently taken the precision and skill from his omakase training and paired it with a distinct understanding of the London foodie crowd’s desire for food served with a side of drama. The menu is split into four sections, each relating to food cooked differently: ignite, smoke, flame and embers. While the cooking process acts as HUMO’s main draw, the personal touches inspired by restaurant team members. The yellowtail dish, for example, features seven-day aged tuna, served with a zingy soy and citrus sauce and Castillo coffee from Miller’s family farm in Columbia. The sea bass is a mellow dish, topped with Mexican vanilla and cracked Malagasy pepper and drizzled with homemade olive oil from Giacomo’s family in Lazio.

The wine list also offers a refreshing take, listing bottles by geographical location rather than country – sections include island, coastal and high altitude. There’s a reason this restaurant went viral on Tik Tok: the attention to detail on delicately balanced dishes combined with the relaxed, free-hand style flame cooking methods create a genuinely unique experience bang in the centre of London’s most sophisticated neighbourhood.
