Housed inside a shipping container, Wildflower will be a fine dining concept built around sustainability.
Buck Street, which is the latest addition to Camden Market owner LabTech’s portfolio, is billed as ‘the UK’s first dedicated market for the conscious consumer’.
The 30-cover Wildflower site will serve a seasonally changing, eight-course tasting menu inspired by Martin’s Irish heritage.
Dishes will focus on using locally sourced produce – including herbs and shoots grown in Buck Street’s communal Garden Terrace – with each one championing a foraged ingredient.
The sample tasting menu includes Jerusalem artichoke volute; turbot with courgette flower and sweet spicy broth; and dry-aged short bib of beef served with truffle, wild mushrooms, and lumper potato.
A two or three-course lunch menu will also be available featuring ‘uncomplicated’ dishes like deep fried oysters with sea truffle and harissa; and braised cheek of Irish beef with wild mushrooms and red wine jus.
Martin has been a chef for 12 years and has previously cooked at Bon Appetite in County Dublin and MacNean House in County Cavan, both of which feature in the Michelin Guide.
He has written two cookbooks – Fakeaway, and Create Beautiful Food at Home – and has made a number of TV appearances including on primetime Irish chat show The Six O'Clock Show.
