Pub and restaurant firm Noble Inns is set to rebrand its Bad Egg restaurant in London's Ropemaker Street as Little Smoke.
Little Smoke, which will have 68 covers inside and 12 outside, will specialise in working with whole native and rare breed animals, sourced from small independent farmers and butchered on-site at sister restaurant Smokehouse before being roasted, smoked, and grilled at Little Smoke.
It replaces the egg-based Bad Egg which launched in early 2015. Bad Egg will still appear each weekend as a pop-up within Little Smoke.
Little Smoke will launch on 10 October offering a daily changing menu of beef, lamb, and pork dishes depending on what has been butchered that day.
Accompanying the meats will be homemade sauces such as beer mustard, aged beef mayo, and gochujang mayo and side dishes such as burnt and crunchy sweetcorn, ancho, apple salsa verde; roasted sweet potato, feta, harissa and crispy garlic; and burnt chilli greens.
"When we opened Smokehouse Islington in 2013, we started using whole animals and soon began supplementing the a la carte menu with a blackboard of interesting specials. Little Smoke is like a big version of that specials board and given a whole restaurant to itself! We're very proud to be working with some incredible farmers and producers and can't wait to show off some of the more unusual cuts such as the huge Tomapork," said husband and wife team and Noble Inns founders Scott Hunter and Maria Larsen.
Noble Inns has five sites in total. It also runs Smokehouse in Islington; the Pig & Butcher, also in Islington; the Princess of Shoreditch; and Smokehouse in Chiswick.
