Middle eastern restaurant Jan is to open in Clapham, south London in June, serving food inspired by the cooking found on the banks of the Caspian Sea.
Founder Faizan Iqbal says an open charcoal oven forms the centre point of the menu, as well as the restaurant, with mains starting from £12 alongside smaller sharing plates, salads, breads and dips.
Menu items will include grilled lamb chops and slow roast shoulder in a pomegranate glaze served with chickpeas and Caspian Spices; sea bream with harissa and preserved lemons; and Caspian spiced roast chicken for two.
The 53-cover restaurant will also feature a Jan beer, developed by Bermondsey microbrewery Brew by Numbers, alongside its range of teas and cocktails.
Iqbal said: "Our aim is to create somewhere different in Clapham where guests can come and enjoy beautifully cooked, simple dishes with lots of Caspian flavours as well as really well-made cocktails in fun and flamboyant surroundings."
