    The Nudge Says…

    Marcus Samuelsson's Harlem restaurant has understandably become quite legendary, and this Shoreditch branch takes it’s finest qualities and builds on them... Aside from Shoreditch-only menu additions – which come in the form of dishes like such as Uncle T’s Herring with fermented rice & brown butter, or duck with foie gras ganache and jicama – there’s also that stage. And while the live bands will be nice, they’re also planning on bussing in live gospel choirs for Sunday brunch. Yep. Oh, and then there’s the fact that there’s an entire other restaurant attached to this one – it’s a taqueria, and it opens at 7am for Mexican-style breakfasts.

    There are so many amazing dishes on the menu it’s hard to know where to begin, but let’s kick off with the Harlem fried chicken, pickles and hot Bourbon maple syrup and the corn bread with honey butter. Oh, and the devilled eggs with sea urchin mayo and candied bacon. Yup.... Harlem’s famous comfort food restaurant has landed in London, serving creative dishes to a soundtrack of London’s best up and coming musical talent. Where has this restaurant been?

    Tatler Says…

    The man who cooked for the Obamas at the White House is bringing flash, irreverent style straight from his Harlem HQ to just-launched Red Rooster, in the basement of Shoreditch's hip new Curtain hotel... The drinks are so good even the 'Sober' cocktails have punch (try the Rooster Juice with cold-brew tea and jerk syrup). Staff with sequinned denim waistcoats mix them up from behind the central bar. Ease yourself in with a peppy Madame Baker, with lemon vodka, St-Germain, Chablis, burlesque bitters and soda, or go hard with a Harlem Hellfighter (Calvados, grapefruit, red and green bitters, and beer).
