le bun residency

This October, luxury French-American street food duo, Le Bun, are taking a month-long residency at Old Bengal Warehouse and launching an all-day brunch experience, ‘Le Brunch’, to tie in with the Warehouse’s new Weekend Club concept.

Available at Old Bengal Bar and New Street Grill every Saturday and Sunday, Le Bun will join head chef Barry Macmillan and his team in the kitchen, serving their brand new ‘Le Brunch’ creations alongside their signature dishes. Brunch will be available every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm alongside New Street Grill’s classic British brunch menu, offering brunch in a bun with Le Benedict Bun (maple bacon, poached egg, hollandaise and an asparagus salad), Le Eggs Royale Bun (Mariage Freres smoked salmon, spinach, poached egg and citrus hollandaise) and bun-free Truffles ‘n’ Waffles (confit Southern-fried chicken, shaved winter truffles, house waffles, truffle butter and rosemary maple syrup) to name a few. The iconic Le Bourguignon Bun (slow-and-low beef short-rib with bourguignon glaze, bacon salt, truffle mayo and champagne slaw) will also be on the menu alongside other Le Bun favourites.

Old Bengal Warehouse Wine Manager Alexis Meszoly has put together a bun-friendly list of French and American wine, including a glass of Bordeaux at £6 and a Californian Zinfandel at £6.50. Additionally, Le Bun worked closely with Old Bengal Bar Manager Milos Popovic to put their unique French take on classic American cocktails, producing a spin on a brunch favourite, Le Bloody Marie, amongst others, all perfect for celebrating the weekend.

Diners can expect a full Le Brunch experience at Old Bengal Warehouse, including buns, beverages and traditional board games, with Le Bun’s resident DJ taking to the decks to provide the ideal soundtrack to drink and dine to.

This is part of a new weekend schedule at the East London warehouse – the Weekend Club – which will see a range of collaborations, events and special menus across Old Bengal Bar, New Street Grill and Fish Market to create the perfect environment to while away the weekend. Launching with Le Bun’s ‘Le Brunch’, Old Bengal Warehouse’s Weekend Club will be the perfect place for lazy weekend brunchers, street food fans and cocktail connoisseurs alike.

New Fish and Chip Shop 50% Off

This October one of Great British Food’s most celebrated dishes will be heading to the City.  Following the hugely successful launch in 2013 of The Fish & Chip Shop on Upper Street Islington (the shrimp burgers are amazing), a second Fish & Chip Shop is now set to open on Old Broad Street, EC2.

For those who want a sneak peak of what The Fish & Chip Shop City has to offer, there will be a 50% off food soft launch offer on 2nd and 3rd October.

Des McDonald, former CEO of Caprice Holdings, has been taking the London restaurant scene by storm this year with a string of successful openings; the chicest summer pop-up: On the Roof with Q at Selfridges, BBQ restaurant Q Grill Camden and the acclaimed Holborn Dining Room at Rosewood London. The Fish & Chip Shop City will be the latest launch from this busy restaurateur and is set to emulate the Islington site with some new exclusive dishes and outdoor seating for a great al fresco dining experience.

The critics raved about the Islington opening, with Giles Coren proclaiming it “a proper bloody fish restaurant, and the best thing to happen in North London.” AA Gill agreed; “The menu is satisfyingly traditional.  It doesn’t have a twist or reinvention or deconstruction to its name.   It’s an attempt to go back to basics and do the thing as well as possible.”

The City kitchen will be headed up by Steve Wilson, formerly of Scott’s and Daphne’s and will be overseen by Lee Bull, Group Executive Chef for Des McDonald Restaurants Etc Ltd.  Adam McMahon, previously at The Fish & Chip Shop in Islington will be the General Manager and the bar will be run by Allan Farrell, former Bar Manager at Sushihno.

The Fish & Chip Shop City will take pride in serving fresh fish (never frozen) from sources that are approved by the Marine Stewardship Council. A delicious selection of line and hook caught Cod, Haddock and Whiting will arrive daily from Brixham, to be grilled, or fried in The Fish & Chip Shop’s own recipe batter, made with Camden beer. The chips will be hand cut in the shop from the finest British potatoes and double fried in refined rapeseed oil, giving them the perfect crunch to fluff ration.

The menu doesn’t just serve ‘posh fish and chips’, diners can choose from a range of delicious seafood from the raw bar including West Mersea Native No.2 oysters, Lobster grilled or served with mayonnaise and Fruits of the Sea for two.  Starters include; Seared scallops with cauliflower and golden raisins, fresh Isle of Bute rainbow tartare and the popular London particular fritters, followed by main courses such as Roasted Dover sole with brown butter and lemon, Monkfish vindaloo served with cumin rice and Tiger prawns with preserved lemon and jalapeno dressing. For those with a sweet tooth the Pudding menu features a fresh Lemon posset served with shortbread, and a heavenly chocolate and honeycomb brownie.

The Fish & Chip Shop City’s wine list will feature 10 red and 10 white and rose including The Fish & Chip Shop’s own blend wines, as well as a selection of Champagne and sparkling wine. There will be a wide range of bottle and draft beer available including Camden Town Hells lager, and Camden Town Pale ale, as well as soft drinks. Cocktail lovers will delight in the quirky seaside themed offering which includes ‘Dirty ‘Fish’ Martini’ – a concoction of Stolichnaya Elite with anchovy brine and anchovies and the ‘Irish Mermaid’ – Bushmills, Aperol, Orgeat and Antica Formula.

Designed by Box 9 Design, The Fish & Chip Shop’s interiors pay homage to the traditional British café, with accents of salvaged timber, antique Georgian glass, duck egg blue panelling and burgundy-glazed tiles. The restaurant will have 60 covers with an additional 16 seats outside for those who wish to dine al fresco.  There will also be a dedicated takeaway window for those in a rush.  The space will be available for hire on the weekends for private events.
