Our Sabor Journey
Esnayder Cuartas is a food and drinks entrepreneur and Colombian national who has lived in London and worked in restaurants and the hospitality industry for more than 20 years.
He was the proprietor of Sabor, the leading Latin American restaurant in Islington from 2004 to 2012, which brought modern and imaginative food and drinks from Latin America to this part of North London.
As a passionate lover of the arts and the promotion of Latin American culture, Esnayder runs a variety of events across London, including pop-up restaurants, private catering and party organizing, often with live music or other entertainment.
Now Esnayder is available to work on your events, to deliver the catering or manage the entire event from finding a venue, to recruiting staff and finding musicians or other entertainers for you. Whatever your hospitality challenge – get in touch and find out what we can do.
Our Restaurant and Bar opened in Islington, London in 2004, serving Nuevo Latino cuisine – fresh, delectable South American food with a fusion touch. It went on to earn numerous accolades and a regular clientele who returned for the changing menu of South American specialities.
The restaurant at 108 Essex Road closed in 2012 after eight and a half years. However, keep an eye on this website whilst we work on new ways of bringing excellent South American food, drink and hospitality to you. You can still contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
