Well, this is a natural – and most welcome – development, isn’t it? The capital’s most famous food market has just launched its very own restaurant, Borough Plates.
Working alongside the really quite innovative Cuisson team, the two-month pop-up will bring together resident traders and farmers to create a seasonal menu sourced from and solely using ingredients from the market itself. It sounds too good to be true, right?
And it doesn’t stop there. Each week a different chef sourced from some of London’s most exciting restaurants will step into the kitchen to collaborate with the market traders.
So punters will be enjoy a selection of plates (ranging from £6 – £16), including charcuterie from Cannon & Cannon, red mullet with seared scallop and rainbow chard, and a raw milk pannacotta from dairy farmers Hook and Son.
Where will the feasting take place? Why, the old trustee’s building, with its elegant 19th century red brick façade. The high-ceilinged lower floor is now home to the restaurant and bar, and up the glam oak staircase is a second, larger dining room.
In short? The perfect tonic for these icy days.
