Brat, not something you call obnoxious children on the tube or those dolls with the oversized eyes and teeny waists (well technically they were Bratz) but also the colloquial term for turbot and the name of Tomos Parry’s (formerly of Kitty Fisher’s and Climpson’s Arch) debut restaurant.
Opening on Redchurch Street, the restaurant will bring together Tomos’s Welsh heritage with the Basque region of Northern Spain, to create a menu that uses British produce cooked on an open fire wood grill. Expect to find dishes of Carmarthen ham; fresh cheese; grilled baby peas and wood fire grilled breads; Cedar wood sea trout with Jersey cream and river herbs and a take on the Welsh national dish of Cawl – offal hot pot with laverbread and potatoes.
Keeling Andrew & Co, the new wine import company set up by the founders of Noble Rot will be working with Tomos to create an approachable wine list, because noone needs to be dealing with a wine list that is more difficult to decipher than Morse code.
Keeping many of the original 1930s features, the restaurant will include art deco wood panelling, large steel frame windows and the original stairwell. Watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen which takes centre stage in the heart of the room.
Opening in Spring 2018, it’s the first sign that 2018 is going to be another excellent year for London restaurants.
