Mayfair's Getting A Fancy Portuguese Chicken Shop

The Ice Bar stopped being cool…

…so now it’s gone.

In its place is something that’s definitely quite hot right now: Portuguese chicken from Casa Do Frango. They already have two branches (in London Bridge and Shoreditch), and now they’re coming to W1. Specifically, they’re coming to Heddon Street which – thanks to neighbours like the Michelin-starred Sabor and pop-up incubator 10 Heddon Street – appears to be collecting great eateries like they’re going out of fashion.

Which they’re not.

The venue is pretty huge, with enough room for a couple of bars set across two floors (which all formerly had to be maintained at a solid -5 degrees) thus the plan is to use all of that space to turn the place into their new flagship. We can be pretty sure they’ll find room for a grill, build a kitchen around it, and build themselves a nice cocktail bar while they’re at it, too.

As you might expect, the menu’s going to be heavily chicken-focused. You’ll be able to get a charred, butterflied bird doused in one of their signature sauces (oregano, lemon and garlic, or piri piri), as well as sides like African Rice (with crispy chicken skin), tomato salad with blowtorched green peppers, and hand-cut Portuguese fries. And, of course, everything will be topped off with a pastel de nata, and then a decent port-based cocktail.

If they can spare any ice.


NOTE: Casa Do Frango Mayfair is set to open later this year. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more their website right HERE.
