Roast Kitchen will launch in Fitzrovia this autumn offering a stripped-back, more casual take on its original concept.
Roast opened in Borough Market’s scenic Floral Hall in 2005 and serves classical British cooking in a relatively formal setting - including white tablecloths.
An announcement confirming the new site says it is designed to create a more “relaxed” atmosphere with a “utilitarian kitchen-style” design spread across two floors.
Best-selling dishes from Borough Market, including the pork belly, will stay on the menu alongside new creations.
Paul Shearing, former head chef at Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen, will be heading up the kitchen. He previously cooked at Odette’s, One Aldwych and Village East in the capital.
“We’re extremely excited to be expanding the Roast Restaurant group after a very successful 12 years in business,” says John Turner, CEO at Roast Group.
“Roast Kitchen will epitomise everything we stand for, serving traditional British dishes made using only the finest ingredients, in a less formal take on our original Borough Market restaurant.”
The original Roast was launched by restaurateur Iqbal Wahhab OBE, who also founded the Cinnamon Club.
