A new "casual, fine-dining" restaurant called Eelbrook is to open in Fulham, south west London, serving European and North African-inspired food.
Alongside early-morning fresh juices, smoothies and classic breakfast options aimed at morning exercisers, dishes will include small plates such as salt cod brandade with seaweed bread; pork cheek croquettes with burnt onion sauce, and plates such as grilled clams, cockles and chorizo, with aioli, tomato and sherry.
Main dish examples include cod confit with crab, courgette flowers and crab sauce; and grilled lamb rump with sauce vierge, peas, broad beans and marjoram.
The 900g grilled rib steak, whole salt-baked brill, and plateau de fruits de mer are designed for sharing among groups, while desserts will be along the lines of signature dish berry gratin champagne sabayon with pink peppercorn biscuit.
It is expected that the restaurant will offer an airy, relaxed feel, but serve fine-dining-style dishes matching the chefs' experience and high-end influences - hence "casual fine-dining".
The restaurant's name is taken from its Eel Brook Common address. The site's interior from Haruo Moroshima - who also designed Yauatcha, Wagamama and Hakkasan â' aims to highlight the setting, including full-length doors on to the common and a year-round, heated outdoors area.
