Former Murano head chef Pip Lacey is to open her previously announced Hicce restaurant within the designer clothing store Wolf & Badger.
The 80-cover Hicce x Wolf & Badger restaurant, with an additional 35 alfresco seats, is to be launched at the new Coal Drops Yard development at London's King's Cross in the autumn.
e menu will include dishes created from a wood-fired fuel source, including grilling, steaming and smoking. Lacey and McIntyre, who will head up front of house, will serve homemade rye bread with seasonal cheese, cured meats and pickles; as well as fish, meat and yakitori cooked over holm-oak charcoal.
There will also be a bar area serving locally crafted beers and cocktails, as well as a concise wine list sourced from small batch, independent producers and featuring biodynamic and organic wines.
Lacey said: "To be part of a development like Coal Drops Yard is an incredible opportunity and to have a partnership with Wolf & Badger makes this move all the more special. Gordy and I have been working to open our own restaurant for many years so this is an absolute dream realised for me and I cannot wait to get into the kitchen."
Coal Drops Yard is a new Heatherwick Studio-designed shopping and lifestyle district. Hicce will join the likes of Tom Dixon, Morty & Bob's, Paul Smith, Le Chocolat, Barrafina and 50 other stores, restaurants and cafes in a set of historic buildings and arches adjacent to Granary Square and Regent's Canal.
Henry Graham, creative director and founder of Wolf & Badger, said: "Pip and Gordy's passion for Hicce and its contemporary concept made them the obvious choice as restaurant partner for the new Wolf & Badger flagship. We are creating a unique, experiential destination at Coal Drops Yard and Hicce's menu, service and atmosphere will be an exciting addition to the space."
