A former head chef at ToastED in East Dulwich is taking the helm at a new West Hampstead restaurant, Ham, which is set to open this spring.

Owned by Rose Tuckey and David Houten, the neighbourhood restaurant will serve a menu created by Australian head chef Matt Osborne, who cut his teeth at The Ledbury in Notting Hill, The Other Naughty Piglets in Westminster and Salon in Brixton.

The restaurant will serve brunch and dinner menus that champion local and artisan produce from “true craftsmen and women” .

Morning offerings will include the likes of crumpets with honeycomb, ricotta and pear; and bircher muesli with almonds, yoghurt and rhubarb.

The evening menu will feature starters of Norfolk quail with artichoke, kombu and watercress; and raw beef with wasabi, ginger and shallots, and mains such as Cornish brill with verjus sauce, pink fir potatoes and mussels; and beef with black sesame, white soy and turnips.

Designed by Rory Macpherson of Play Associates, the interior – which will feature an open kitchen and marble topped bar - will mix modern elements like exposed brickwork with more traditional design features like green leather and velvet banquettes, inspired by Kenwood House stately home in Hampstead Heath.

The team is aiming to create a “buzzing living room” atmosphere, says Osborne, where customers can “come together to share food and stories”.
