Raw Duck relocated after unexpected demolition

Raw Duck restaurant and wine bar is set to re-open in Hackney, London, after its former site was unexpectedly demolished.

Diners at the restaurant, the sister site of Ducksoup in Soho, was evacuated in November 2013 after the manager went down to the cellar for wine and noticed bricks had fallen away and created a large hole in the wall.

Turkish restaurant Cirrik was also evacuated by the London fire brigade, as well as eight residents who lived in the Victorian terrace, which was the only remaining part of the Gibbons Building, a Victorian department store destroyed by fire in 2003.

Owners Clare Lattin & Rory McCoy will now move Raw Duck to the site of what was Unpackaged on Richmond Road, with a planned opening in March this year.

Unlike the previous site on Amhurst Road, which had no kitchen and meant the entire menu was cooked on a couple of panini machines, the new location does have a kitchen, and the all-day dining menu promises a greater offering than its predecessor.
