The founders of modern kebab restaurant Le Bab will open a second venue in Covent Garden this spring.
Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet have said Maison Bab will comprise a new style modern kebab house, bar and 10-seater chef’s table restaurant.
For their latest venue the pair have collaborated with Le Bab head chef Manu Canales Garces, who will run the kitchen at Maison Bab.
The menu will see the introduction of a new style of kebab with more punchy, bold flavour combinations on offer.
Kebabs will be handmade using ancient charcoal-grill traditions coupled with modern culinary techniques and served in house-made flatbread. The menu will include the onglet kebab, with fresh green peppercorn mayo & dressed watercress, and a vegan option of slow-grilled celeriac shish with carrot purée & crispy onions.
The six-strong kebab menu, all priced under £10, will sit alongside a selection of modern mezze, sides and desserts, with a focus on the ingredients’ quality, seasonality and provenance.
Drinks will include cocktails created by head bartender Alessandro Mannello, which will sit alongside wines by the glass from the award-winning Lea and Sandeman and London craft beer.
Split across two floors, Maison Bab will offer 40-covers at ground level, with a further 30 seats in the basement space, which will be available for private hire, as well as the secret restaurant space. The interiors, designed in collaboration with award-winning design studio Angus Buchanan, will have a more colourful and striking feel than Le Bab.
