Hām | A Beautiful West Hampstead Restaurant From An Ex-Ledbury Chef

Hām is Coming to Hampstead


Hām, apparently means ‘home’ in Old English.

And it looks like ex-Ledbury chef Matt Osborne has finally found his hām.

It’s up in West Hampstead, and it’s his first solo venture after working at the award-studded Ledbury, Salon in Brixton, and the Other Naughty Piglet. Being Australian, he’s going to be serving not lunch, but brunch and dinner only, with menu-fillers including crumpets with honeycomb, Westcomb ricotta and pear; Norfolk quail with artichoke, kombu & watercress; raw beef with English wasabi, ginger and shallots; Cornish Brill in a verjus sauce with Pink Fir & mussels.

Desserts will feature chocolate crémeux with blood orange sorbet & peppermint, and cheese from Neal’s Yard.

And, apparently no ham.

NOTE: Hām is due to open this Spring. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more and take a look at the menu right HERE.
