Chef-restaurateur Robin Gill has opened Darby's, an oyster bar, bakery and grill on Embassy Gardens in London's Nine Elms.
The restaurant is inspired by his jazz musician father, Earl ‘Darby' Gill, and it celebrates his time spent touring America in the 1950s and early 1960s. The design is inspired by the Manhattan bars of that time, as shown in the burnished glass lampshades and fluted velvet banquettes.
Following Gill's other London restaurants, the Dairy, Counter Culture and Sorella in Clapham, Darby's will continue his ethos of a produce-led menu, offering pastries and cooked options for breakfast, and sandwiches such as salt beef and celeriac rémoulade bagels, and house-cured mortadella and Jersey milk ricotta on sourdough for lunch.
