Embers' Summer and Autumn Residency at Renegade Urban Winery in Lockwood Way, E17

Embers has taken over the kitchen at the Renegade Urban Winery in Lockwood Way, E17, serving in their mezzanine restaurant Weds-Sat until the end of October 2023.  Embers comprises chef Ernesto Gabriel and his friend Graham Lewis, who set it up earlier this year, first with a supper club, then a residency in South London, and now here. 

The food is very much what Ernesto wants to cook; great ingredients and big flavours, often cooked over fire or coals (hence the name).  When I visited I tried their crumpet (topped with a delicious pile of mushrooms), plus a main course of their bavette steak (from Jones the Butcher), with coal roast potatoes (with miso), and marinaded tomatoes.  Then I allowed myself to be talked into a donut with white chocolate sauce and toffee apple.  

The quality is amazing; Renegade have kept up their impressive record of finding chefs to cook great food in their space.  The steak in particular was perfect.  I do not have steak often, but I'm still thinking about this one.

Embers are serving on Wednesdays to Saturdays - Wednesday to Friday evenings, and all day on Saturday.  The menu will change regularly, but on the basis of yesterday's lunch I would look forward to eating anything from Ernesto's kitchen.

"Embers, who spent the last few months capturing the hearts and palates of South East London, are thrilled to announce their return to their spiritual home in East London. Brace yourselves for an explosion of heat, smoke, and flavour as Graham and Chef Ernesto kindle a new chapter, showcasing the finest seasonal produce in a rustic, creative, and captivating dining experience at Renegade Urban Winery (E17).

Chef Ernesto, leans on his Michelin-starred experience and intrepid culinary adventures through Asia and the Americas that infuse his cooking with an extraordinary range of global influences. Combined to create a menu that strikes the perfect balance between cherished signature dishes and interesting new flavour combinations, cementing Embers' status as an exciting addition to Walthamstow's vibrant dining scene. 

Prepare to embark on a memorable journey within the relaxed ambiance of Renegade’s 60-seat winery. Where Embers' food offering is built around shared plates for guests to savour and explore the rich tapestry of flavours. 

Additionally, Wednesdays at Embers present an irresistible opportunity to indulge in a plate accompanied by side or bite with a glass of wine for just £25! It's a midweek treat not to be missed."
