Native is the first restaurant venture of Ivan Tisdall-Downes and Imogen Davis. Following a series of pop-ups and street food markets, Ivan and Imogen settled into their first permanent site in Neal’s Yard in 2016, before relocating to London Bridge in July 2019, and most recently finding their latest home as Native at Browns Fashion in Mayfair earlier this year.
Entirely self-taught, Ivan has completed stages at The River Cottage and Dan Barber’s Blue Hill Farm at Stone Barns, honing his skills and developing his enthusiasm for natural, foraged and seasonal produce. Despite a long-held love of food, Ivan did not consider a career in the industry until his parents left London and he was forced to spend a summer in the countryside, where he quickly gained an appreciation for Britain’s wild produce, and a sustainable approach to living. The joy of giving people happiness through food persuaded Ivan to turn his passion into his livelihood. An indomitable team, we can’t wait to see what Ivan & Imogen bring to The Wilderness Kitchen.
