Maison Bab | Covent Garden Kebab Restaurant
When Le Bab first opened, they put a new spin on the kebab.
And now they’re aiming to do it again.
And given that the three chefs behind the whole enterprise are met while working at Le Gavroche, they’ll probably succeed. Their second venture, Maison Bab, will be in Covent Garden, and it will be considerably larger than their debut spot (not hard, given that it’s in a Kingly Court nook) with two floors, and seating for around 80 people.
The menu will feature half a dozen charcoal-grilled ‘babs, including onglet & fresh green peppercorn mayo; and a vegan slow-grilled celeriac number with carrot puree & crispy onions – and they’ll all be under a tenner.
But the real piece de resistance? The space is going to feature a hidden chef’s table-style 10-seater restaurant, which will be a fine dining affair, where the menu promises to be considerably less kebab-ey. And there’ll be cocktails, too.
Just to shake things up.
NOTE: Maison Bab is due to open this spring. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can check out their other restaurant HERE.
