Millennial paradise arrives on Curtain Road courtesy of mad new restaurant Rascals


What: Rascals

In a nutshell: Inventive dishes in an inventive setting

Summing it all up: We’re not sure which bit of Rascals to tell you about first. There’s the waterproof room with half off on Champagne, the bottomless pizza, or the Wheel of Misfortune with wooden stocks for the “losers”... plus creative cocktails, a mad menu and a retro dessert trolley for all your tableside flambéing needs.


The low-down

Hold onto your hats, East Londoners - Rascals is coming, and they’ve got waterproof dining rooms, comedy game show meal packages and an ongoing 50% off Champagne deal depending on what room you’re in…

The soon-to-be-open self-proclaimed “millennial paradise” is designed to accommodate "audacious chit chat, steam release and mega indulgence," and will be hawking all manner of curiously-named menu options including:

  • Deep fried chicken tinglepops
  • Jalapeno popper washing line
  • Cauli cod waves
  • Stick pig belly with a mezcal glaze

There'll also be bottomless pizza with toppings like creamed spinach, garlic mushrooms and Serrano ham for you to contend with.

Drinks will be a similarly over the top affair, with 70 bottles of wine for you to choose from, plus plenty of mad cocktails including a Yuzu Pretty with cognac, rum, matcha and yuzu, or their Naughty Nuts with bourbon, fig syrup and walnut bitters.

Eton Mess and Floating Island available from the dessert trolley which will be deployed for all your tableside flambéing needs. And yet somehow that's not the most dramatic aspect of the new restaurant.

That’s because Rascal’s will be running a Bottomless Brunch combined with a daytime comedy game show, which will include the Wheel of Certain Misfortune, giant playing cards, and a pair of wooden stocks for misbehavers. So the best, or the worst thing ever, depending on your temperament.

In a similarly weird vein, Rascals’ is also very proud to launch world’s first “waterproof private dining table”. Why? Well, we’re not *entirely* sure - the only clear reason the restaurant has given is that it's for “placating childish desires”, and has added that in combination with there being a perma-discount of 50% on all Champagne ordered to this room, “let’s face it, spraying things at your friends has, and always will be, very amusing”. We can already imagine the pearl-clutching tweets that are going to hit social media when that quote gets out.
