Meriel Armitage

The Club Mexicana story started in East London, born out of a love and admiration of the diverse food scene across the Atlantic in cities including LA, New York and San Francisco. Founder Meriel Armitage left her job and retired from the world of advertising to jump into the kitchen and set about changing the perception of vegan food in London, and with that, the Club Mexicana supper club was born.

Teaming up with the likes of chef Adam Rawson for a seven course tasting menu pop-up and a collaboration with Five Points Brewery, Meriel quickly caught the eye of Kerb and later Henry Dimbleby and Jonathan Downey at Hawker House and Model Market, and now trades in Camden Market and Dinerama in Shoreditch. They also took up a year long residency at Pamela on Dalston’s Kingsland Road in 2016, which wrapped up on 22 December 2017 to make way for The Spread Eagle project, which opened in January 2018.
