In the vein of recent ‘specialisation’ restaurants such as Burger & Lobster, Tramshed and Potato Merchant, a new restaurant celebrating the humble chicken and its eggs will open on July 8th in Kingly Court off Carnaby Street.
Whyte & Brown will be open all day, from breakfast through to dinner, and will be showcasing every imaginable way you could cook a British, free-range chicken. As you’d expect there’s burgers, soups, casseroles and pies but also some more unusual creations such as ‘chicken crisps’ (crispy chicken skins), Vietnamese minced chicken salad, a pulled chicken bap, and harissa hot wings with caramelised orange.
Without the chicken there’d be no egg, of course and Whyte & Brown will offer everything from eggs benedict and Florentine through to risotto Scotch egg (a casing of leek, spinach and lemon thyme risotto) and Bangkok Scotch egg (minced thigh meat and Thai herbs). On weekends, whole roast and spatch-cocked birds will be available with all the usual trimmings.
The space itself will be split across two levels and it promises to be a very casual affair, with sharing tables, sofas and the usual mishmash of rickety furniture. There’ll also be a small outdoor courtyard should the weather ever warrant it...
Whyte & Brown opens on July 8th at Kingly Court, London, W1B 5PW. Follow them @whyteandbrown
