London has had its fair share of rotisserie chicken joints and with Nando's having such obsessive fans it's a brave person who steps into the fray with a new offering. But that's just what first time restaurateur Harry Deighton is doing with Fire and Feathers - a piri piri chicken joint opening on the Fulham Road this summer.
Regulars of the Earl of Portobello pub may remember their pop-up there last summer. Well now they're back in what was formerly Exquisito in Fulham. The menu is sticking to the chicken theme with juust four choices for starters, mains and desserts. Chicken platters will feature three choices of seasoning - garlic, piri piri and Dynamite (extra hot). Main courses will include steak Bavette, seabass and a chicken sandwich, plenty of salad and regularly changing vegetarian options as well as side dishes like African rice and sweet potato mash.
As for the chicken itself, it'll be sourced from the UK and will be slightly larger than a poussin.
For drinks - there'll be six house cocktails and a wine list with six red and six white from Europe and the New World. Expect to see Portuguese wines on there.
The restaurant will be on two floors - a bar and restaurant on the ground floor and a semi-open kitchen with a dining area on the first floor.
Fire and Feathers will open at 343 Fulham Road, London on 17 June 2014. opening hours will be 11.30am to midnight, Monday to Friday, and from 10.30am to midnight on Saturday and Sunday. Walk-ins only.
