Adam Rawson's 'Global Traveller' Residency at The Gunmakers in Clerkenwell


Brilliant young chef Adam Rawson has started a new residency at The Gunmakers at 13 Eyre Street Hill, Clerkenwell, serving his superb burgers from noon til 9pm on weekdays - normal sizes for lunchtimes, slider sized for the evenings.  His 'Global Traveller' burger menu now had a new addition, following a recent research trip to Japan - the Nippon Umai (aged beef, Chashu braised pork belly, Nambanshu sauce, wakame edible seaweed and wasabi mayo) which sounds every bit as good as his other ones.  See you there!

"Hot young culinary talent Adam Rawson is bringing his acclaimed international cooking to Clerkenwell, with a new kitchen residency at popular local pub The Gunmakers. Crowned “Chef of the Year” at The YBFs in 2015 and named one of CODE Hospitality’s “30 under 30” for the way he is redefining London’s hospitality industry, Adam is renowned for his innovative dishes influenced by his global travels. His latest pub popup menu features his award-winning burgers from the past two “Slider Decider” competitions and a brand new burger inspired by his recent trip to Japan, as well as an array of bar snacks all with his original twist.
Visitors to Adam Rawson’s kitchen takeover at East London gem The Gunmakers can enjoy his broad lineup of Global Traveller burgers, including a first taste of the Japanese-themed Nippon Umai (aged beef, Chashu braised pork belly, Nambanshu sauce, wakame edible seaweed and wasabi mayo) plus both his “Slider Decider” challenge prize-winners. Champion from 2015 the Peruvian Pan Con Chicharrón (aged beef, crispy pork, aji rocotto ketchup, aji Amarillo mustard and salsa criolla) and 2016’s Global Traveller (aged beef, gorgonzola, balsamic onions, pancetta and truffle aioli) will be available alongside the pub’s specially-created new signature burger The Gunmakers (aged beef, Giovanna ham, Cornish brie, roasted pineapple, watercress and Mezcal BBQ sauce) and other intriguing combinations taking inspiration from across the world.
Served from Monday to Friday at lunchtimes and as sliders during the evenings, Adam Rawson’s Global Traveller burgers are all made with the finest Galician beef and are ideal accompanied by his irresistible spiced chips with garlic mayonnaise. Those looking for a light bite or smaller dishes to share over a few drinks at The Gunmakers can choose from a host of snacks with Adam’s inventive global touch, such as smokey pork belly with honey and soy, fried chicken with yuzu mayonnaise, and cheese rolls with smoked HP."

When - Until the end of May 2017

Anna Walker London's March Pop-up Shop in Spitalfields


Designer Anna Walker London is popping up in Redchurch Street for March, with a shop that will sell her new and existing range of bags.  Open from 2nd - 30th March, it will be the debut for the new The Faraday Cross-Body bag, and also offer monogramming.

"Anna Walker London launches new bag design at month long Redchurch Street Pop-Up.
London based leather goods brand Anna Walker London is pleased to announce details of its forthcoming pop-up store, opening on Thursday 2nd March and is thrilled to announce the launch of new addition to the product range, the Faraday Cross-Body.
Following on from the success of last year’s Spring and Summer stores (the July pop-up was selected as one of ‘The Top Five London Pop-Up Shops of 2016’ by Drapers), Anna Walker London is back for a third time in residence at the In House pop-up space on Redchurch Street, E1. This will be the brand’s longest pop-up yet with the store open for business for a full four weeks.
Designer and founder Anna will be in-store daily to offer free, while-you- wait personalisation on all purchases.
The March Redchurch Street Pop-Up Store will also be the only place to shop the as yet unreleased Faraday Cross-Body bag which will be on display in three beautiful colourways of the brand’s signature ethically sourced vegetable-tanned Italian leather and available for pre-order ahead of its online release this Summer.
This new bag marks a departure from the wide range of totes that Anna Walker London offers - this is the first cross-body style bag that Anna has created. The adjustable shoulder strap is accented with brass hardwear and the polished edges of the leather are treated with a clear finish rather than the more common painted edges so as not to hide the beauty of the fine leathers they are crafted from. 
The clean-lined, minimal and functional design takes its cue from the Faraday Pouch, it is an expanded, exploded variation on this ever popular core shape. Along with the Faraday Tote and Pouch, the Faraday Cross-Body is the third product in the Faraday collection.
For the first time customers will also be able to shop the current Anna Walker London collection which has, until the pop-up launch, only been available online."

When - 2nd - 30th March 2017
Monday to Friday 10.30am - 6.30pm
Saturday 10.30am - 7pm
Sundays 11.30am - 6pm
