When it comes to food, Camden Market is not short of places to eat, but the team behind its latest restaurant are hoping that they will be able to rival the best that Shoreditch and Fitzrovia has to offer.
Opening on the 6th July in one of the Victorian stable blocks, Gabeto (which is means ‘our house’ in Spanish) will see, former Chiltern Firehouse chef, Lee Andrews heading up the kitchen to create a menu that brings together British ingredients with Latin flavours.
Tacos, rare-breed steaks and small plates including the likes of beetroot-cured salmon and chorizo Scotch eggs will make up the signature dishes. At breakfast, you’ll find Scottish lobster tail with a pan-forked omelette whilst throughout the day they’ll be cooking up chicken Caesar salad with raw kale; quinoa with paneer, padron peppers, heritage carrots and celery; grilled octopus and smoked cauliflower steak with cauliflower puree, girolles, Romanesco, baby aubergine and truffle. A changing line-up of street food will be hosted on the terrace and when it comes to drinks there’ll be a short but engaging wine list and cocktails that make the most of Central and South American flavours.
Modern art, retro-style furniture and contemporary fittings will juxtapose with the vaulted brick ceilings and timber trusses of the original site, the two -storey Long Stable. An industrial-esque spiral staircase will lead up the first -floor restaurant, here you’ll find gallery art and elegant period features alongside booths and eclectic furniture. Keep an eye out for bespoke feature murals, they’ve been created by John Bulley the renowned artists behind Camden Lock bridge.
Between Thursday 29 June and Wednesday 5 July, new Camden Market restaurant and bar Gabeto will be serving food at a 50% discounted soft launch price – click here for more details.
