Opening next week (5th November), in Shoreditch, new restaurant Urban Coterie will be a celebration of all things British!
The menus will change each month with a focus on provenance and seasonality. Alongside snacks such as Pigs head with ‘ndjua mayonnaise and Potato doughnuts with Parmesan, expect to find starters of Brixham crab, apple, and celeriac and Ox tongue with green vegetables, crisp tripe and oyster mayonnaise. Signature mains include Pork belly, carrots, grapefruit and liquorice and Grilled monkfish with cockles, kale, rosemary and anchovy vinaigrette, while larger dishes such as Shin of veal with roast vegetables and Grass-fed rib of beef are designed to share. Classic desserts of English custard tart and warm chocolate mousse with toasted rice ice cream complete the menu.
Demetre says of the launch: “I love east London for its infectious energy and I’m excited to be opening Urban Coterie here with Searcys. Today, cooking can be unnecessarily over-complicated and our approach lets seasonal ingredients do the talking. I’m fortunate to have the talented Martin Zahumensky as Head Chef as his cooking ethos is very much in line with mine.”
THIS RESTAURANT HAS NOW CLOSED.
