We've been without Tomos Parry's excellent Brat restaurant for a few months - but now it's returning in not one but three different incarnations.
First up is the Brat x Climpson’s Arch residency which sees Parry going back to his roots as he had previously been in the kitchen there from 2013-2015. Brat will be there all summer long and alongside some Brat signatures (we're assuming the Turbot and their smoked potatoes will be making an appearance) will be dishes like:
- Grilled Crocadon Farm aged mutton chops, petit snap greens with smoked new season garlic, homemade ricotta and unfiltered olive oil
- Basque fish soup with Cornish velvet crabs
- A salad of slow-grilled pollock, laverbread and tomatoes.
Drinks-wise, there will be bottled Bloody Marys, Pineapple Tepaches and Espresso Martinis and there will be a bookable private dining area too.
Next is Brat at Home, where they'll be delivering boxes to delve into at home. Collection only (to start with, at least) these will include roasted whole crabs, cuts of meat from Philip Warrens butchers and Brat signatures like grilled bread with anchovy, smoked potatoes and whole burnt cheesecake with rhubarb. Expect that to be available early July at £140.
And finally, Brat, the main restaurant, is returning to Shoreditch too - they'll reopen mid-July.
