Alex Hely-Hutchinson, founder of breakfast concept 26 Grains in Neal’s Yard in London’s Covent Garden, is launching a sister concept at Borough Market.
Stoney Street, named after the location near London Bridge, replaces the Rabot Estate chocolate shop and will be open from breakfast to dinner. At the helm of the kitchen when it opens next month will be pastry chef and author Henrietta Inman.
Breakfast dishes will include slow roasted tomato galette with tomato and chilli jam on fennel and coriander seed pastry; six grain and seed porridge with apples, blackberries, lemon cream, butterfly sorrel, and puffed barley; and milk crèpes with September plums, Neal’s Yard yogurt, and toasted nuts.
A bakery counter will serve seasonal tarts and pastries and there will also be a hatch in the window serving coffees and pastries. Lunch will involve small plates such as warm chicory, pear and raclette salad and mains including focaccia sandwich with anchovy hazelnut butter, wilted cavolo nero, Yorkshire pecorino and land cress.
Dinner dishes will include pollock with fennel, orange, olives and braised lentils; pappardelle with a sauce of wild mushroom, sorrel, tarragon and egg yolk; and bavette with Swiss chard, Taleggio and slow roasted shallots.
The drinks list will be made up of five red wines, five whites, one orange and one rose, as well as a selection of classic cocktails. In the evening, bottled wine will be available to take away through the window hatch.
Designed by Block1, the interiors at Stoney Street by 26 Grains will be simple and stripped-back, featuring the original brushed concrete floors and lime-washed walls, with wooden furniture.
Hely-Hutchinson said: “My team and I have had such an amazing journey since starting 26 Grains five years ago and have learnt so much along the way. Stoney Street will be a big sister to 26 Grains; slightly more refined, a longer menu, a coming of age.”
