Soho House to open combined Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger restaurant

Soho House is to combine two of its restaurant concepts - Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger - into one new restaurant site in London's Whitechapel.

The new site will open on 21 May and will serve both of the single-dish menus under one roof.

Nick Jones, chief executive and founder of Soho House, said: "Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger are projects we've had a lot of fun with. We spent a long time building each concept and to have them sit together in the same space is a very exciting prospect. East London is an area where we already have roots; we look forward to getting to know Whitechapel better and integrating ourselves within the local community."

The 60-cover restaurant will extend to 100 covers in the summer months, with outdoor seating for 40. Designed in-house by Jones and his team, the latest opening will have an industrial feel with makeshift seating, exposed brick and piping and high ceilings. A vinyl record player will offer diners the chance to choose requests and even bring their own records to play.

The menu, created by Jones, will mirror the north and south London offerings, serving rotisserie chicken and hand-made burgers.

The chicken will be served quartered, halved and whole with either Chicken Shop's own brand ‘hot' or ‘smokey' sauce. Alternatively, diners can opt for one of three Dirty Burgers: a cheeseburger, ‘dirty bacon' or a ‘dirty cop-out', which is a vegetarian burger made with Portobello mushroom, melted Applewood cheese, pickles, rocket and tarragon mayonnaise.

It will open early for breakfast during the week, and brunch at the weekends, the restaurant will offer eat-in dining as well as takeaway. The morning menu will be a mix of healthier Soho House staples such as poached egg and avocado as well as ‘dirty' options such as ‘dirty breakfasts': sausage and egg or bacon and egg.

The restaurant will also offer Soho House's ‘dirty doughnuts', which will be made fresh each morning.
