Brat’s Head Chef & Co-Owner Tomos Parry’s new restaurant (the man behind Brat in Shoreditch) “Mountain” will be opening on Beak Street. It’s being described as a wood grill and wine bar, which they say reflects “Tomos’ favourite meals from journeys across Spain over recent years”. That will be paired with his local sourcing from fishermen and farmers in Wales and Cornwall, echoing what he does with Brat.
For snacks, there will be two types of sobrasada made specifically for the restaurant in Mallorca, alongside raw Carmarthen prawns, wild asparagus and braised peas with cockles. And in addition to that, there will be:
Pink bream served whole, split and roasted on the plancha
Wood-grilled lamb chops
A traditional Menorca dish – lobster caldereta, served in steaming ceramic pots (we expect you’ll be seeing those all over Instagram)
Apparently, we can expect smoked potatoes too as a carby special. As for drinks, he’s once again teamed up with Keeling and Andrew of Noble Rot, and they’ll be focusing on about a dozen winemakers taking inspiration from the “mountain and sea” inspiration of the restaurant.
The restaurant takes over what was once a Byron and the main feature will be a big counter bar that’s been created from English elm. There’s also an extra bar in the basement where they say you can “watch the chefs working a large wood fire oven that is roasting the deserts, ensaimadas and almond tarts.”
