Update - Open for 2016 from Thursday 19th May 2016
Franks Cafe, the rooftop restaurnt & bar in Peckham, re-opens for 2015 on Thursday 28th May. Perched on the top of a multistorey car park, ten stories high, it's one of the original London pop-up restaurants - first opening for the summer in 2008 - and still one of the best. Take the lift for the 10th floor, and walk up from there, past Bold Tencancies' art, til you get to the rooftop. There you'll find the bar and restaurant open Tuesday-Sunday until 27th Sept, and serving seasonal food, freshly cooked. Plus, the views are stunning!
"Frank's Cafe is the flagship architectural commission of Bold Tendencies in Peckham. The bar was designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley & Lettice Drake), and opened in 2008 by bartender Frank Boxer and chef Michael Davies.
Myles Donaldson will be overseeing the running of Frank’s kitchen. Conceived after the meeting of two young chefs enrolled on a catering course in a rural town at the tail end of the 70’s; food is the only thing he knows.
He will be sourcing the best seasonal produce, cherry picking from the abundance of a summer harvest and using the highest quality meat and fish.
Treating the ingredients sympathetically with an array of modern, classic and ancient cooking techniques, he will bring an ever evolving menu to Frank’s summer 2015."
