Pidgin duo James Ramsden and Sam Herlihy are to open a sandwich, soft serve, craft beer and cocktail shop in King’s Cross.

Sons and Daughters will be the pair’s third food venture and is expected to launch in the summer.

Little information is currently known about the project, but according to an article by Eater​ it’s going to be based in the recently-opened Coal Drops Yard development. It is thought Ramsden and Herlihy are waiting for an alcohol license application to go through before releasing more details.

A small blurb accompanying a recent tweet by Herlihy describes Sons and Daughter as a “fast-casual sandwich bar”, and says that all their sandwiches are to be made in house “using the freshest and best ingredients around”.

Ramsden and Herlihy opened Pidgin, which is known for completely changing its set menu every week, in 2015 after running London supperclub The Secret Larder. Last month they were forced to close their Mayfair restaurant Magpie after admitting to struggles with footfall.

Interestingly, footfall is also an ongoing challenge faced by restaurants at Coal Drops Yard, according to Harts director Crispin Somerville, who runs four restaurants in the King’s Cross development. Speaking at last month’s R200 conference, Somerville said that footfall had been lower than predicted.
