Shoreditch hotel The Boundary will open a new ground floor restaurant and bar next month in the space that formerly Albion Café.

Called Boundary, the 100-cover restaurant and bar will serve modern British food with a European influence with newly appointed head chef Robin Freeman, formerly of 1 Lombard Street and Ekte Nordic Kitchen, at the helm.

Menu items will include starters such as Lulworth Bay scallops in anchovy and parsley butter; cuttlefish in ink sauce; and Glenarm Estate longhorn steak tartare. Mains will feature sharing style whole roasted chicken with wild garlic butter; grilled Torbay cod; and wild garlic and nettle risotto.

Freeman will also oversee the menu at The Boundary’s refurbished rooftop bar restaurant.  

The new opening follows the acquisition of the hotel​ by James McCulloch of Harcourt Inns and an extensive renovation of the venue that was formerly owned and designed by Sir Terence Conran.

“The ground floor of the Boundary is one of the most underutilised spaces in East London and I’m excited to have the opportunity to re-position it into a bar and brasserie,” says McCulloch.

“The rooftop has always been a popular destination over the summer months, and we just want to build on its popularity by improving the guests overall experience, through better food and drink and introducing live music and some personality.

“Whether you’re enjoying a sundowner on the rooftop bar, staying in one of the boutique hotel rooms, tucking into a three-course meal in the brasserie or hosting your 40thbirthday party in the basement then quality, provenance and hospitality will be at the heart of what we offer.” 

Boundary opens on 18 May 2022.
