The 60-cover Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger Whitechapel will serve quality rotisserie chicken and hand-made burgers, as well as breakfasts during the week and brunch on the weekend.
Chicken, burgers and breakfasts
The main menu, created by Soho House founder and chief executive Nick Jones, will feature quartered, halved or whole chicken marinated with Chicken Shop’s secret ‘Hot’ or ‘Smokey’ sauce. It will also include three Dirty Burgers: a Cheeseburger, Dirty bacon or a Dirty cop-out, a vegetarian burger made with Portobello mushroom, melted Applewood cheese, pickles, rocket and tarragon mayonnaise. Sides from both brands will be served, including crinkle cut fries, onion rings, creamy coleslaw, corn on the cob and salad.
The morning menu will offer a mix of healthier Soho House staples such as poached egg and avocado as well as ‘dirty’ options such as Dirty Breakfasts: sausage and egg or bacon and egg.
A range of Dirty Doughnuts will be baked freshly each morning, with daily changing flavours available for £2 each until they sell out.
Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger Whitechapel will also serve an extensive drinks list with daily special cocktails, draft beers, craft beers, wines and soft drinks.
The venue will feature a stripped-back, industrial design, with makeshift seating, exposed brick and piping and high ceilings. Both communal and individual tables will be available, as well as seats at a counter near the kitchen.
Music will be played on a vinyl record player, with diners given the chance to request songs and even bring their own records to play.
In the summer, an outdoor area with an additional 40 seats will increase covers to 100.
“Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger are projects we’ve had a lot of fun with. We spent a long time building each concept and to have them sit together in the same space is a very exciting prospect,” said Jones.
“East London is an area where we already have roots; we look forward to getting to know Whitechapel better and integrating ourselves within the local community.”
