Harden's says

A fried chicken shop like no other. Famed NYC chef Marcus Samuelsson has delivered an outpost of his hugely popular Harlem restaurant to Shoreditch; located inside the Curtain Hotel, it offers punters the authentic taste of American soul food (with his unique Scandi twist), live music five nights a week and also an all-day, walk-in taqueria and bar called ‘Tienda Roosteria’.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.


Ethiopian-Swedish chef, Marcus Samuelsson brings his southern-soul-food-via-Scandinavia cuisine to the eclectically decorated basement of an oh-so-hip Shoreditch boutique hotel and members club. It opened in mid 2017 – early press feedback is positive.
