Foley’s | Fitzrovia Restaurant
Mitz Vora – a former sous chef from the critically acclaimed Middle Eastern counter dining extravaganza that is The Palomar – has added something new to his portfolio.
Located on Fitzrovia’s Foley Street in a small-but-perfectly-formed space featuring exposed brick walls, leather seats, and a small marble bar facing out onto the street (alfresco style), Foley’s presents a fairly global food offering, drawing heavily from the Spice Trail.
The menu here – which was extensively tested, refined, and perfected during a 6 week long popup – features small dishes like ceviche endive tacos (with tuna, octopus, and coconut miso leche) and Korean BBQ charcoal grilled chicken thigh ends; and – sizing up – main course-sized plates like nori-wrapped tuna with nashi pear (it’s slightly crisper and juicier than a normal pear); cornflake-crusted chicken with pickled shimeji mushrooms; and sticky beef with crispy shallots & lime puree.
And should you be wondering what people drink on the Spice Trail…it’s apparently cocktails like a Chai Old Fashioned (rounded out with blood orange liqueur & maple syrup) and the alarmingly healthy sounding Happy Days, with coconut water, grapefruit, pineapple, lime, and ginger juices.
