Bincho Yakitori owner launches Potato Merchant restaurant and grocer

The owners of Bincho Yakitori have launched a new restaurant specialising in potatoes, with the opening of the Potato Merchant restaurant and grocer.

Ronnie Truss and David Miney opened the new restaurant in London's Exmouth Market last week. It offers a seasonal British menu that makes use of unusual varieties of potato in various guises, promising to showcase more than 50 varieties throughout the year.

The all-day menu will offer traditional breakfast alongside a choice of sautéed potatoes, bubble and squeak and potato breads, as well as afternoon tea including potato bread and butter pudding and sweet potato brownies.

The daily-changing restaurant menu will offer a special potato dish of the day with a side salad and a glass of wine for £12, as well as other dishes including rabbit terrine, lamb stew and fish pie.

There's a traditional grocer's shop on site too, allowing customers to take home potatoes and offering chutneys, flavoured salts, peelers and graters.

Commenting on the launch Truss and Miney said: "We were inspired to set up the Potato Merchant because we think the potato has been much overlooked. We want the Potato Merchant to inspire people to share our excitement in rediscovering or finding new dishes to try with us or at home from our grocers."
