All-day Australian restaurant Milk Beach in Queen's Park, London, has announced it is to double in size by taking over the adjacent site formerly occupied by Hugo's restaurant.
Milk Beach, founded by Elliot Milne in 2018, will undergo renovations and relaunch in late summer with an enhanced evening service featuring a full dinner menu created by Australian head chef Darren Leadbeater, formerly of Wild Honey and Brunswick House.
Dishes will include fried whitebait with Tasmanian pepper berries and squid ink tagliatelle with crab. The restaurant's popular Sydney-inspired all-day brunch menu will continue, with house-roasted coffee by UK roasting champion Matthew Robley-Siemonsma.
The refurbishment will create a new bar serving low-intervention wines, cocktails and beer on tap. As well as the larger interior, the operation will feature an enlarged outdoor seating area on Lonsdale Road mews covered by parasols, with heating for alfresco dining all-year round.
A takeaway shop and weekend barbecue will continue throughout the renovations.
