Have you moved somewhere in London only to discover it could really do with a few more restaurants? Well, you could do what Genevieve and Tim Sparrow are doing in Tottenham and just open your own.
The duo, who have both worked in restaurants for years, moved to Tottenham a few years back. After running a series of supperclubs around the area they finally decided to go all in. Tim has stepped back to look after their young family while Genevieve, who's currently working at the Quality Chop House, is getting ready to open the permanent restaurant.
They've taken over the space that used to house the William Hill bookies on West Green Road. The all-day cafe and restaurant will start with coffees and pastries in the morning, switching to sandwiches at lunchtime before "transforming into an intimate bar and restaurant in the evenings". Talking to Hot Dinners, Genevieve expanded: "We’ll be installing a long bar for counter-dining and creating a small retail area at the front, which in the evening will become a cosy wine bar. The rest of the space will open out into a light, airy cafe by day, restaurant by night."
"The restaurant will be an evolution of our supperclubs," they say, "so we'll continue to work with seasonal ingredients and European flavours, with a focus on colourful vegetarian and vegan dishes, alongside select high welfare meat and fish."
"The drinks focus will be on quality wines and aperitifs. We'll have a good mix of classic and natural wines to choose from as well as a selection of simple cocktails and of course a range of craft beers."
It's also going to be a handy bottle shop so locals can pop in to buy a bottle to take home as well as enjoy a drink in the restaurant.
Thanks to Hot Dinners reader James for the tip-off
