The company behind Sushi Samba have been busy, having only recently geared up for their first European opening this summer in London, they are also the brains behind Duck & Waffle set to open in August this year.
Encouraging a shared experience for guests through its menu featuring small plates, artisanal cocktails & expansive rum selection, they will be open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. With panoramic views of London from the 38th and 39th floor of Heron Tower in the City, it will be the place to party this summer.
Formerly of Old Brewery at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, The Empress in Victoria Park, and The Ambassador in Exmouth Market, London, Daniel Doherty will be the man in charge of the all-important kitchen.
Breakfast for city workers from 6am to 11am will include Foie Gras ‘All Day Breakfast’ with homemade nutella and jam, fresh brioche, pork dust and rice crispies and Duck & Waffle with fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup.
The all-day dining menu will have dishes like Old Spot pork pie with smoked quail egg, bacon-wrapped dates with linguiça sausage and endive salad, homemade black pudding with gooseberry chutney, British seafood pot roast with n’duja and wild sea vegetables and lamb sweetbreads with broad beans and smoked bacon and Fourme d’Ambert Eccles Cakes.
At the time when most of us are in bed, from 2am to 6am, you can still turn up and eat a late-night menu of items such as Roasted Galloway Veal Marrow Bones with ox cheek marmalade, pickled girolles and parsley!
Duck & Waffle will open in August 2012 at the Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY. http://www.duckandwaffle.com/
