Stoney Street | Seasonal small plates In Borough
Main image: 26 Grains
It’s already pretty hard to find a reason not to spend all your waking hours at Borough Market, and now with the launch of Stoney Street…
…it’s set to get even harder.
It’s being brought to us by the same folks behind porridge-focused 26 Grains. Although, this time they’re moving beyond oats, offering a much more varied, all-day food menu, alongside a couple of classic cocktails, and a short but considered selection of wines.
For breakfast for instance you’ll find dishes like slow roasted tomato galette, baked in a fennel and coriander seed pastry; or – for those looking for something a little sweeter – milk crèpes with September plums, Neal’s Yard yoghurt. There’ll also be a permanent bakery counter, stacked high with seasonal pastries and tarts, which you can either eat in, or order to go through a hatch at the side of the restaurant.
Lunch and dinner on the other hand will take the form of small plates. Like with breakfast, Head Chef Henrietta Inman will craft the likes of warm chicory, pear and raclette salad; wild mushroom pappardelle; and bavette steak with Swiss chard, Taleggio, and slow-roasted shallots; using exclusively local, seasonal produce.
Space wise, the plan is for it to be a paired-back mix of brushed concrete floors, lime-washed walls, and hand-made wooden furniture. Guests will have the choice between two counters to sit at, one overlooking the kitchen, and the other over-looking the market beyond. Otherwise – when the weather’s warm – the restaurant also boasts big bi-folding doors that open out onto a back terrace where you’ll be able to chow down al fresco.
NOTE: Stoney Street is opening in October 2019. They don’t have a website just yet, but you can keep up with all the launch details via their Instagram here.
