Will Beckett and Huw Gott are busy boys – what with their first non-London Hawksmoor outpost now open in Manchester. But, still flush with the readies from their deal with Graphite Capital, they seem to have found time in their schedule to launch a second Foxlow: their more everyday eating brand.
There have been rumours of a sister restaurant to dynamic duo’s 2013 Farringdon spot for some time and now Foxlow 2.0 has opened on Stoke Newington Church Street. Taking over the site of Homa (a pretty decent modern British/Italian) the premises boasts a 100-cover dining room, bar and outdoor terrace.
Richard Turner and Lewis Hannaford oversee the menu, which features slow-smoked and charcoal-grilled dishes, along with lots of lighter, healthier things. Foxlow in Stoke Newington also serves brunch (think Moroccan eggs with Sobrasada toast, fried chicken & eggs with croissant waffles and avocado, chilli & lime on toast) and Sunday Roast Longhorn beef.
Resident’s of N16 will no doubt be torn between excitement at the prospect of having this handy amenity in their midst and trepidation at the extra footfall it will probably bring (as if Stokey Church Street didn’t already have enough prams and poseurs).
