What: Arthur Hooper's
In a nutshell: European plates and sharing platters near the Market
Summing it all up: Victoriana meets pan-European sharing plates at Arthur Hooper's, a new restaurant overlooking Borough Market, with a very flash interior.
Sharing will be the name of the game here, rather than proper sit down plates, making it a good casual stop in. Inside the Victorian-themed restaurant, which will be open seven days a week, there’ll be charcuterie and cheese boards a plenty, which you can pair with other dishes including:
- Crispy artichokes, garlic herb crème fraiche
- Burrata, samphire and almond salad
- Harissa beans, charred tender stem, salted ricotta
- Pork and fennel fettucine, salmoriglio breadcrumbs
- Seared onglet, English asparagus, sun dried tomatoes
Suppliers will include Neal’s Yard, and there’ll also be a curated wine list.
The restaurant itself will overlook Borough Market, and its interior should prove interesting, describing itself as a 'rough jewel box', and has been designed by an interior fashion label to echo the history of the local area using steel caged light fightings and decaying wooden stalls.
