Originally supposed to launch with Nuno Mendes at the helm, this Barworks project was then the first solo restaurant for TV chef and writer Gizzi Erskine (although she left in the summer of 2018) – the new neighbourhood venue in Hackney's Keltan House incorporates a bar, restaurant, deli and café.
Harden's survey result
“A wonderful addition to the area” – a 10,000 square feet market inside the transformed base of a formerly run-down, Hackney office-block, which is the brainchild of Marc Francis-Baum (owner of a string of bars and pubs). With its flowers, vintage design-pieces, artisan coffee, bar, open kitchen and ‘dining room’ he’s channeled hipster design pheromones to maximum zeitgeisty effect. It’s not a majorly foodie hotspot, but “the atmosphere’s buzzing, and the drinks are always flowing. Love it!”
Star ex-Viajante, Chiltern Firehouse, etc chef Nuno Mendes teams up with Barworks to launch a new neighbourhood venue in Hackney’s Keltan House, incorporating a bar, restaurant, deli and café.
