What: Bryn Williams at Somerset House
In a nutshell: Welsh food but not a Welsh restaurant
Summing it all up: Odette's chef Bryn Williams is set to open a fruit and veg focused restaurant overlooking the river at Somerset House
It's a busy year for Odette's chef Bryn Williams. Not only is he opening a restaurant at the new Spurs stadium but now he's announced he'll open his first central London restaurant at Somerset House.
Bryn Williams at Somerset House will "celebrate modern British dining and the very best of Welsh produce, with fruit and vegetables taking centre stage."
On the menu expect dishes like:
- Rainbow carrots, hand-dived scallop, sauterne
- Pickled mooli, black garlic, raw apple, sage, Cumbrian beef.
- Roast young broccoli, olive tapenade, sage beignet, scorched Cornish mackerel
- Bay leaf panna cotta, blackberry, lime curd and Poached rhubarb and blood orange trifle.
See the full launch menu below.
Beer lovers will be cheered to know that the new restaurant will also feature a draught beer bar, the only one on the Somerset House premises.
The restaurant will open this spring in the South Wing of Somerset House taking over the space previously occupied by Tom Aikens' Tom's Kitchen. And after a sneak preview during the soft launch we have to say they've done a brilliant job with the space, raising the floor so more tables get great views out over the river. It's quite lovely looking.
