There's a new gourmet fast-food pop-up coming to Kensington. February will see neighbourhood fish brassiere Kensington Place transform its private dining room into a pop-up restaurant called FISHBone. It's looking to offer a unique fish and seafood menu in a relaxed, laid-back setting.
Inspired by popular dishes from the restaurant’s summer menu, FISHBone will offer a range of ‘fast-fish’ dishes created by head chef Dan Loftin, including his take on the traditional kebab: Salmon ‘Doner with Pitta, Cucmuber and Yoghurt. Other offerings include Pulled Skate with Beurre Noisette and Capers alongside the menu’s classic serving of the Scallopdog with Brown Shrimp and Cucumber Vierge. Food, as befits a pop-up fast food joint will be served on plastic trays.
As for drinks, the ingredient-focused, swap ‘n’ share menu will be complemented by Kensington Place’s iconic fish gluggle jugs, hot and cold Sake, and a small selection of British beers and spirits.
Seating only 36 diners Tuesday to Saturday, the small space will feature a large communal wooden table running through the centre of the room which they hope will encourage sharing. Sounds like fun and worth a look, so grab some mates and head on down for a fishy feast.
FISHbone launches on Saturday 1st Feb, running until Saturday 30th March at 201 Kensington Church Street, London, W8 7LX.
It will be open Tuesday to Thursday: 12noon – 3pm; 6.30pm – 10:30pm, Friday to Saturday: 12noon – 3pm; 6.30pm – 11pm. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7727 3184.
