Aim of the game for Will Beckett and Huw Gott when they opened the first Foxlow in Clerkenwell back in 2013 was to run a great neighbourhood restaurant. They succeeded and it’s now famed for favourite dishes like Crispy Five Pepper Squid, Foxlow Fried Chicken and Ten Hour Beef Shortrib with Kimchi.
So Stoke Newington residents will be suitable ‘stoked’ to know that the duo is opening a second Foxlow – a 100 cover restaurant and bar on the former Homa site on Stoke Newington Church Street, on the 15th April. When they opened Foxlow #1, they used to live in a flat in Stoke Newington and have always fancied the area so it’s also a bit of a homecoming.
The new interiors will be by Macaulay Sinclair who designed the Clerkenwell original alongside Gott and will be split over two levels with a terrace at the front.
Chefs Richard Turner and Lewis Hannaford will oversee the menu, which will feature the signature Foxlow slow-smoked and charcoal-grilled dishes, along with lots of lighter healthier items as well. But never fear, the Foxlow brunch menu is safe so if you’ve a hankering for Moroccan Eggs with Sobrasada Toast, Fried Chicken and Eggs with Croissant Waffles or Avocado, Chilli and Lime on Toast of a weekend – well you know what to do.
