What: The Blue Posts
In a nutshell: The Palomar pub
Summing it all up: The people behind The Palomar and The Barbary are opening a pub in Chinatown. It'll be a three-floor affair including a basement kitchen counter and a cocktail bar.
Barely settled down from opening Jacob The Angel earlier this year, the team behind The Palomar already have their next spot lined up.
They're taking over Chinatown pub The Blue Posts. A pub has been there for at least 275 years and, given the work at Jacob the Angel, you can bet the team are going to celebrate that history as much as possible. Here's what to expect:
The ground floor will be the main pub. High ceilings, many drinks.
The beer cellar is becoming Evelyn's Table, a single kitchen counter. There will just be 11 seats here - and promises to do what the Palomar and Barbary team so best - a damn good counter spot. Expect the kitchen behind the counter with food handed directly to diners. And it's ONLY bookable - something of a change for them.
The first floor is The Mulwray, a cocktail lounge. Lots of marble and brass, and a wood burning stove which will come in very handy on a cold night.
In charge of the food will be Head Chef Nacho Pinilla. He was Executive Chef of The Barbary and as well as looking after Evelyn's Table, he'll also be creating a bar menu for the other areas.
