Thanks to the power of public land registries, some good-old-fashioned journalistic sleuthing, and a little bit of ‘Google-fu’, The Low Down has solved the mystery surrounding the identity of the new owners of Café Molo: Chelsea resident and husband and wife business duo Peter Smulders and Adriana Korkos.
