Lorincz, the former head bartender at the American Bar at The Savoy, is to lead El Bar at the newly renovated Momo restaurant in Mayfair.

Lorincz joined the American Bar as head bartender when the hotel re-launched after an extensive refurbishment in 2010. He left in May of last year after nearly eight years of service.

It was named the best bar in Europe under his stewardship in the 2016 in the World’s 50 Best Bars list, placing second in the world behind New York’s Dead Rabbit. In 2017, it was named the the best cocktail bar in the world.

Since hanging up his white jacket, Lorincz has been travelling the world and promoting his range of bar tools, Birdy by Eric Lorincz.

Now he is returning to London to head up the new El Bar at the high-end north African Momo restaurant, the sister restaurant to the Michelin-starred Sketch, in Mayfair, as reported by the Evening Standard. 

Momo, owned by restaurateur Mourad Mazouz, is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment and will reopen in March 2019.

“As the restaurant enters its 22nd year, the iconic Momo will undergo a transformation in January 2019 and will reopen in March,” a spokesperson for the restaurant said.
