What: The Patate
In a nutshell: Beefy French pop-up goes permanent
Summing it all up: They've been serving up their beef bourguignon buns across town and now The Patate are about to settle down with their first permanent restaurant in Kentish Town.
We were sad to hear of the demise of Beef and Brew, a restaurant we loved in both its incarnations. But as is the way in London, it's never too long before a new restaurant appears in a space that another has vacated. Beef and Brew is at least being replaced with something equally beefy - it's the turn of The Patate, which has taken over the Kentish Town site.
The Patate, set up by school-friends Paul-Henry De Vassoigne and Martin Le Boulc’h, are best known for their current Camden Market street food operation and various Kerb locations around town, with the beef bourguignon in a bun being the main attraction (we can see why) and that will lead the menu at their new restaurant. There will also be:
- French Poutine - grilled beef Bourguignon and jus, French fries ‘Maison’ and your choice of cheese.
- The Patate Toastie, with your choice of cheese in a toasted brioche bun,
- The Veggie Burger - grilled mushrooms, bûche de chèvre (goat cheese), and truffle honey in a brioche bun.
You'll have the option to choose your cheese too. They'll have Raclette de Savoie, Fourme d’Ambert, Applewood Smoked Cheddar, and a selection of new cheeses on the menu. You can have these melted over your fries, naturally.
