A steak restaurant and liquor bar dedicated to the humble hanger steak (traditionally known as the ‘Butcher’s Cut’) will open this summer offering cuts from just £10 a pop (or £20 for two people sharing). Hanger comes to Fulham courtesy of first time restaurateur Patrick Falla, who worked at the likes of D&D London before striking out on his own. James Burton (most recently of Searcys at the Gherkin but with experience at L’Enclume and Gleneagles under his belt) heads up the kitchen.
Located in the heart of Fulham Broadway, Hanger is set over two floors with a 60-cover restaurant and 45-seater liquor bar downstairs. As well as lunch, dinner and cocktails, the venue will offer an American-inspired brunch at weekends with the signature dish of Steak & Eggs.
A keen forager in his spare time, James’s menu will change with the seasons, and the star of the show will be the hanger steak, a relatively overlooked cut of beef. Also known traditionally as the ‘butcher’s cut,’ since butchers liked it so much that they often kept it for themselves instead of selling it, hanger steak packs big flavour (similar to ribeye) without the wallet-emptying price tag. Supplied daily by Hixson’s of Smithfield, steak will be around £10 per person or £20 to share. The menu also features the Hanger Steak Sandwich, served with Sticky Onions, Watercress, Mustard & Ciabatta
Small plates, sides and puddings will also be on offer, such as: Hanger Sundae made with Meringue, Fruit Curd, Vanilla & Lemon Pie Ice Cream and a delightful Chocolate Orange Brownie & Cornflake Ice Cream will feature.
The downstairs liquor bar will serve cocktails such as The Perfect Storm, a rum and ginger based old fashioned style cocktail and the Chelsea Sidecar created using Sipsmith gin infusions, with a Sipsmith distiller located on the bar, the infusions will change regularly. Freedom Beers (also based in Fulham) will be available from the bar.
