A new Portuguese piri piri restaurant is planned for London's Fulham Road, following its successful run as a pop-up last year.
Fire & Feathers will be launched in May by restaurant industry newcomer Harry Deighton. A former City worker, he initially brought his concept to market in the summer of 2013 with a pop-up at the Earl of Portobello pub in West London.
The new permanent 70-capacity restaurant in London SW10 will offer a concise menu made up of four starters, four mains and four desserts.
Sample dishes include: sharing starters of garlic prawns, chorizo, and cold meats; main dishes such as steak Bavette, sea bass and a signature chicken sandwich as well as four types of salad; and side dishes of tomato & onion salad, African rice, sweet potato mash and coleslaw. Vegetarian options will also be offered, and change regularly.
Small style chicken, sourced within the UK and with an average weight of 600g, which is slightly larger than a poussin, will be served for "optimum flavour".
The restaurant, set over two storeys, will feature a ground floor bar area and will operate a no-reservations policy.
Design agency 44th Hill, which previously worked on the Rum Kitchen, Chop Shop and 52 North Soho, is behind the interiors at Fire & Feathers, which features upcycled and sustainable materials, repurposed floorboards and vintage ceramic tiles from Portugal.
