In a nutshell: The Lyle's team's next big thing
Summing it all up: The people behind Lyle's open their second restaurant in Borough called Flor. This time it's part wine bar and part bakery.
It's currently one of the World's 50 Best Restaurants (no 38 on the list) and now the team behind Lyle's are planning on opening their second restaurant. Flor will be a wine bar, bakery and restaurant by Borough Market, taking over the space that was Patisserie Lila.
The two floor space described as "the little sister of Lyle’s" will be an all day affair inspired by the buvettes of Paris and the pintxos bars in San Sebastián.
As you come in there'll be a bakery counter - they're promising sourdough loaves made from Dorset wheat, milled in-house at Lyle’s along with pastries galore including brioche filled with sourdough caramel; birch syrup Kouign-amann; seasonal Danishes; and a raw cream bun.
Take a seat downstairs at the counter, or head upstairs where there'll be banquette seating. Lunches might feature dishes like a cured Mangalitsa and Comté sandwich in fermented potato bread; or maybe raw scallop with preserved gooseberry and green tomato. Heading into the evenings the dinner menu promises delightes like burrata, grilled bread and salted tomatoes; lamb ribs with yoghurt and black lime and maybe chocolate sabayon tarts or loganberry fools for dessert.
They're also promising their first brunch menu on Saturdays with dishes like coddled eggs with trout roe and za’atar; purple sprouting broccoli with cured egg and kipper butter; and eggy bread with maple and black pudding. Now that's going to be popular.
