Frog by Adam Handling
The Frog has spawned.
That is to say, the East London restaurant from Adam Handling (winner of multiple accolades ranging from Scottish Young Chef of the Year to Scottish Chef of the Year, and generally smashing it as but a young 28-year old), has just opened a second restaurant in Covent Garden.
It’s the second in his planned army* of Frog establishments, following the success of his laid-back, urban-styled fine-dining in Spitalfields. This branch, set to become the flagship restaurant, has a slightly more formal aesthetic – spread over two floors, there’s even a private dining room with its own dedicated kitchen alongside the speakeasy-style basement bar.
It’s a pretty sweet pad.
The menu, meanwhile, changes weekly and is set to continue in his signature modern British style, using seasonal ingredients with mind-bogglingly technical compositions, nowhere better exemplified than the classic “Beetroot, Beetroot and More Beetroot”, consisting of candied beetroot stuffed with a beetroot mousse and a beetroot gel covered with beetroot dust.
Only time will tell if he can beet that…
*apparently, the actual collective noun for a group of frogs. Scary.
NOTE: Frog by Adam Handling is now open, and you can reserve a table on the website HERE.
