Gordon Ramsay’s coming over all Jamie Oliver.
Best read that again.
Despite having been launched by a man who has built a gargantuan reputation on successfully running some of the world’s most exclusive restaurants (as well as for screaming things like “Now fuck off you, you fat useless sack of fucking yankee dankee doodle shit”), Bread Street Kitchen was designed to offer the more casual diner a little Ramsay love.
Located within shouting distance of Jamie Oliver’s caveman-style meatfest, Barbecoa – Bread Street Kitchen’s found within a huge space that’s set out over two floors and has an industrial, “warehousey” feel (said to have been inspired by its East London(ish) location).
Offering an informal approach to dining which will see the restaurant open from 7am on weekdays, the Bread Street Kitchen menu includes dishes from a raw bar, a wood-burning oven and from the large – and, one would assume, lively – open kitchen. The decor sees reclaimed furniture, vintage armchairs and leather banquettes sitting alongside an exposed lift shaft (which has apparently been left exposed just in case anyone really peeves Ramsay off) and viewing platforms through the centre of the restaurant.
The all-day restaurant offers an extensive wine and cocktail list alongside a seasonal menu or – for those happy to pass on an entire meal – the ground floor bar offers a selection of small plates.
Bread Street Kitchen. Done.
