Single-ingredient concept Monsieur Le Duck will launch its first bricks and mortar site in London’s Clerkenwell next month.
The Gascony-inspired, 80-cover restaurant, which had previously operated in Spitalfields as a pop-up, will operate across two floors at 27 Clerkenwell Road – previously home to Workshop Coffee, which closed in 2017.
The site is scheduled to launch on 9 May – less than a week after the planned closure of its pop-up.
The duck-themed menu offering will include mains such as duck wellington and duck steak baguette with moules marinière. Small plates will include duck rillettes with bread, cornichons and jam; confit duck croquettes with chilli mayo or truffle; as well as confit duck wings on celeriac remoulade.
Desserts include tarte aux pommes with crème fraîche and a ‘fromage à trois’ of Brillat Savarin, chèvre and Comté.
