Flank OG's BBQ Residency at The Print House in Stratford

Flank OG is a new year-long residency at The Print House bar in Stratford from chef Tom Griffiths, focussing on great quality meats, smoked and slow cooked.  Tom also has sites in Spitalfields Market, and at Market Halls in Victoria, but this new site gives him a much bigger kitchen to work with, and the results are spectacular.  The menu includes ribs, brisket, sausages, mini burgers, a bone marrow potato slice, and lots more.  Everything I have tasted has been stunning, and it's open daily, so head there as soon as you can!

"Flank OG launches a summer residency at The Print House in Stratford next week. The nose-to-tail and butchery experts have devised a traditional bbq menu to soft launch in Stratford on 12 August. 
Flank is known in the capital for street food, but the concept was actually born out of pop-ups and residencies in Brighton over five years ago. Founded by Tom Griffiths, it now operates from Market Halls Victoria and Old Spitalfields Market, and Flank’s ethos is to promote nose-to-tail eating and cooking over fire using lesser-known cuts and layers of smoking to create mouthwatering dishes full of flavour and texture.
The OG menu offers smaller plates such as the Pig head sub roll with bbq glaze (£8); Burnt end beef naan with chilli sambal (£8). For mains guests select a ‘tray’ served with pickles and a white slice (£10 to £16, or £45 for a selection of all meats) and include Spicy smoked offal and slow cuts; Coal-buried summer squash and goats curd; and Galloway glazed short rib. Sides include the Pork lardo sticky rice (£3), Bone marrow potato slice (£4) and sauces (£1.5 each) Pan stock, Carolina, BBQ gravy and Sambal. 
As a special throughout the run Flank OG will serve Glazed duck cooked over fire, served with duck fat naans and duck leg clay pot (£28).
On Sundays Flank OG serves sharing trays of roasted meats such as Belted Galloway beef with mustard bone marrow (£18/pp); Smoked pork belly with crispy pigs ears and apple ketchup (£17/ pp). All roasts are served with Beef fat roast potatoes, BBQ greens, Creamed spinach and peas, Roasted maple spiced carrots, Blood cake stuffing and Mother’s gravy; and an Apple slice and frozen custard for dessert."

When - Daily until Summer 2020

Oxalis' Two Week Residency at Great Guns Social near Borough

Oxalis, led by chefs Nick Ross and Max de Nahlik, are popping up at Great Guns Social near Borough for the second half of August 2019, with a menu of ocally produced, ingredient-led dining, underpinned by classical technique and influenced by modern Britain.  They will be serving from Tuesday 19th to Saturday 31st - don't miss this chance to catch two up and coming chefs!

"Oxalis London is the first venture from bright young things Nick Ross and Max de Nahlik. Having spent the last several years working together at various establishments, the friends realised that their shared passion for seasonal British food and fine dining could be channelled into creating a restaurant of their own.
Nick’s background is steeped in French fine dining, his repertoire including the likes of Cafe Boulud Toronto and Merchants Tavern. Max meanwhile trained at the prestigious Leiths School of Food and Wine and under Peter Weeden at Newman Street Tavern and the Riverford Organics at The Duke of Cambridge.
Thus, Oxalis, offering a regularly changing menu of locally produced, ingredient-led dining underpinned by classical technique and influenced by modern Britain, is the culmination of their invaluable experience."

When - 19th - 31st August 2019
Tues- Sat: Lunch and Dinner: 12-3pm / 6-9.30pm

For Starters' Ode to the British Showman Supper Club near Angel. N1

For Starters is a new supper club, created by chef Scott Perkins and theatre practitioner Cassandra O'Reilly, is holding a six course supper club upstairs at The Joker of Penton St, near to Angel station, on Friday 23rd August 2019.  Titled Ode to the British Showman, it is a celebration of classic street food from stalls at British travelling fairs of yesteryear.  Tickets cost just £45, and you can see some of their menu developent on their Instagram page here.

"For Starters was established when a visionary chef and an ambitious theatre practitioner united through their fierce passion for seeking unique dining experiences. Combing their joint interests of food and theatre, chef director, Scott Perkins and theatre practitioner Cassandra O’Reilly created for starters, to offer three bespoke dining experiences; flavour, sensation and experience.
Sensation marries together refined dining and narrative-led concepts. Each menu is fuelled by research and context to provide an unforgettable experience. Our supper clubs were developed for you, the diner to be immersed into a journey through food whilst engaging all of your senses to create a multisensory dining experience like no other. Chef director Scott Perkins uses his vast industry experience gained whilst working in Michelin star restaurants and large-scale events. This enables him to create and design innovative menus to compliment the history and culture of each event. Scott’s aim is to challenge the diner’s perception of flavour whilst plating flavoursome dishes that stimulate a reaction through sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.
We invite you to join us for our supper club at The Joker of Penton Street
Ode to the British Showman – the travelling shows or fun fairs as we know them, date back to the 14th century and have now become a staple part of the great British summer. Our menu is inspired by traditional food stalls found at English travelling fairs served in a modern and untraditional way. Roll up, roll up and expect the unexpected..."
