Following a series of successful pop-up supper clubs, chefs Gerald Mirey and Ko Ito will open their first permanent restaurant Bistro Mirey in Fulham on Friday 12 January. For the past year, Mirey and Ito have collaborated on fusion dining experiences underpinned by classic French cuisine with Japanese flair at venues across London like Islington’s Cuckoo N1 and more recently at The Charles Lamb.
Bistro Mirey will deliver the same cosy, intimate and unique supper club experience, serving lunch and dinner daily as well as weekend brunch and Sunday lunch.
On the menu: Steak tartare, beetroot carpaccio and spiced potted shrimp whilst mains this winter run the gamut from Hokkaido-style pheasant with root veg and blueberry sauce, and braised beef cheek in red wine with miso and wasabi mash to polenta cake with shimeji mushroom and mizuna. For dessert, Mont Blanc with chestnut and traditional French galette sit alongside yuzu crème brûlée and matcha ice-cream.
For wine, a selection of France’s most noted vineyards make up a hand-picked selection of blancs, rouges and rosés, which sits alongside a Japanese sake menu which also features local London craft sake Kanpai.
Normandy-born and classically-trained Mirey has previously worked at Boisdale, The Garrison and Gordon Ramsay’s The Narrow. Ko, originally from Hokkaido Island – northernmost Japan – moved to the UK a decade ago and his cookery style fuses Japanese tradition with Western influence.
