What can you tell us about Black Cod and Wagyu?
It's the latest wheeze from the same people behind Goodman, Burger and Lobster, Beast and Zelman Meats. It's another one of their opportunities to make previously expensive dishes much more affordable to everyday diners - black cod and wagyu beef doesn't normally come cheap, you know (the black cod miso at Nobu is a whopping £42).
So how can they make this more affordable?
They've got huge tank space over near Heathrow which allows them to store more of the black cod and, much like their lobster, more stock means they can pass on the savings to customers.
And where is this restaurant?
It's taken over the bar space at Zelman Meats in Soho for at least until the end of the year. If it all proves popular, they may be looking at making it a more permanent London fixture.
So how does the menu work?
It's a more trimmed down affair than the normal Zelman Meats menu - concentrating on starters, mains and the sides. The mains - which is why you'll be here are priced at either £20 each for the black cod or wagyu (£15 at lunchtime) - or £40 for the both of them together which we think will be enough for two people when combined with sides and starters. And the other dishes can also be found on the main Zelman Meats menu.
Here's what we had on the night as well as the main event, which you can see above.
And how about drinks?
There's a short, bespoke wine list for the pop-up (prices start at £25 a bottle, with 250ml carafes available too). We can heartily recommend the Joseph Cromy Pinot Noir from Tasmania - £50 and worth every penny. In addition, they've two bespoke cocktails on the menu - and here they are...
This pop-up gives you the chance to try some more of the more expensive dishes in London for a lot less money than usual. As ever, Zelman serves up great quality - and we think you shouldn't miss the opportunity to try out the cod at the very least. And those epic lobster croquettes - they're worth going back fo again and again.
Hot Dinners were invited to Black Cod and Wagyu. Prices are correct at the time of writing.
