Lower Eastside Deli, a new American-style sandwich restaurant from architect and entrepreneur Scott Kyson, is to open in London's Shoreditch.
The 22-cover, 600 sq ft site will officially open on Scrutton Street later this month, following a soft launch. It will operate from 8am-8pm, with a full alcohol license.
The menu, created by chef Jonathan Lake and inspired by Kyson's love of travel, will focus on New York-style sandwiches, with fillings such as salt beef and sauerkraut; chipotle pulled pork with apple slaw; slow-cooked ham hock with fried egg and melted cheese; and an 18-hour slow-cooked beef short rib with BBQ sauce.
There will also be a ‘vegetarian stack', with grilled vegetables and halloumi; a meat and pickle box, with a selection of pickles; and a shredded chicken and spinach salad.
Desserts will include pancakes and waffles served with toppings such as strawberries, Nutella chocolate spread, or savoury choices such as bacon. There will also be a selection of gluten-free options.
Décor-wise it will feature high stools arranged around oak tables and bright blue tiling, with customers served over a slab of white marble. The kitchen will be stainless steel and open to public view.
Scott Kyson is a London-based architect and founder of Studio Kyson, with a focus on architecture and interior design in both urban residential and commercial properties.
