Earlier this year, there was the sad news that The Lockhart was closing, but if you lived in fear at never getting that cornbread again - then worry no more. Some of the best dishes of the Lockhart are finding their way over to a new menu at Brad McDonald's Soho restaurant Lockhart.
Finding themselves on the menu are:
- Cornbread with Honey Butter - ordered fresh to the table, it's one of London's must-have dishes
- Shrimp and Anson Mills Cheddar Grits - smoked bacon, button mushrooms and heritage grains from South Carolina’s Anson Mills.
- Cornish Crab Dirty Rice (we LOVE the Dirty Rice) - cooked with small chunks of chicken liver, garlic, Andouille sausage and brown crab.
And there's their much-loved fried chicken, That's being made available in a family-style Fried Chicken Dinner banquet, served with "cornbread and all the fixins". In that dinner (for 8) you'll get 20 pieces of chicken included for £20 a head.
All this now sits alongside the smoked meats that Shotgun is best known for - so there's plenty of brisket, ribs and more too.
