D&D London launches Notting Gill Chippy as part of summer campaign
Restaurant group D&D London is to launch its first fish and chips pop-up at its Kensington Place site, named the Notting Gill Chippy.
Found adjacent to the main restaurant, the 30-seat, 1,700 sq ft site will be open from 1-29 August and serve dishes from new head chef Tim Peirson, inspired by traditional fish and chips.
Dishes will include the "Lobster thermi-bun", a savoury doughnut stuffed with lobster thermidor sauce; "Bitter and twisted scampi", made with whisky-cask-matured Harviestoun Brewery golden ale, and curried-spiced batter fish and chips, with mango chutney and lentil dahl.
There will also be classic fish and chips with tartare sauce and mushy peas, as well as fish finger butty with spicy ketchup, and sides such as poppy and rye sourdough, with seaweed butter, and baby onions, cornichons and quail eggs presented in vintage-looking Kilner jars.
The drinks selection will feature cocktails including "Consommarys" and "White Snappers" â' the pop-up signature cocktails â' made with smoked vodka and gin. There will also be a selection of craft beer, including the Harviestoun Schiehallion lager and the Bitter and Twisted ale.
The launch will form part of D&D London's #60DaysOfSummer campaign, which includes innovations across the group's portfolio.
They feature the Provence terrace at London Bridge site Le Pont de La Tour; dance, yoga and pilates workshops on the rooftop garden at Coq d'Argent; cinema screenings at Madison near St Paul's; and DJ sessions at Angelica in Leeds.
The Old Bengal Warehouse near Liverpool Street will be serving surf and turf dishes outside, while Butlers Wharf Chop House in London Bridge will have a traditional British picnic on the menu.
Chelsea's Bluebird will be offering Wimbledon-themed cocktails and dishes, while Almeida in Islington has launched a new summer menu, and Liverpool Street's Fish Market has a "Fisherman's Cottage" terrace. Mayfair's Quaglino's is holding a Prohibition Tea, while Orrery in Marylebone has also launched a new summer terrace.
D&D London owns and operates more than 30 restaurants across London and Leeds, and also has sites in Paris, New York and Tokyo.
