In a nutshell: Leyton deli opens its own restaurant
Summing it all up: Following a few years of popups and residencies, Leyton wine bar and deli Yardarm is now making its restaurant space a permanent spot and keeping it in the family when it comes to the chef.
Popular Leyton wine bar and deli Yardarm opens its much-anticipated restaurant this week.
The store has been running pop-ups for a couple of years from the restaurant space next door, as well as doing tastings and cheese and charcuterie boards in the shop itself. But now it's moving up a gear with their own, permanent restaurant.
Keeping things in the family, the chef will be Joe - the brother of co-owner Dan O'Connor, who's most recently been up in Edinburgh at Timberyard and, before that, working with chef Dan Barber at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York.
A sample menu promises dishes like:
- Sweetcorn, mushroom toast
- Zucchini flower, ricotta, pumpkin seed
- Runner beans, peach, walnut
- Rigatoni, shin, aged ricotta
- Chickpea pancake, parsley, comte
The restaurant will be open Wednesday through to Sunday and you can expect some top brunch and Sunday lunch action come the weekend.
