Bistro Mirey will open in Fulham, south west London, on Friday 12 January, serving dishes underpinned by classic French cuisine but with some Japanese influence.
Starters on the launch menu will include steak tartare; beetroot carpaccio; and spiced potted shrimp while mains will include Hokkaido-style pheasant with root veg and blueberry sauce; braised beef cheek in red wine with miso and wasabi mash; and polenta cake with shimeji mushroom and mizuna.
Desserts will feature classic French dishes such as Mont Blanc with chestnut and galette alongside those of a more Eastern bent, including yuzu crème brûlée and matcha ice-cream.
The wine list will be predominantly French but the restaurant will also serve a Japanese sake menu and also London craft sake brand Kanpai.
For the past year, Mirey and Ito have collaborated on a number of pop-up restaurants and supper clubs across London, with locations changing every few months. Previous sites include The Cuckoo N1 and The Charles Lamb, both in Islington.
Normandy-born Mirey has cooked at The Boisdale and The Garrison and was most recently head chef at Gordon Ramsay’s The Narrow pub in Limehouse. Ko, originally from Hokkaido Island, moved to the UK a decade ago and his cookery style fuses Japanese tradition with Western influence.
