A former Perilla chef will open a new restaurant in Cambridge on the banks of the River Cam.
Adam Wood will launch Garden House in July, with a focus on open flame cookery and seasonal East Anglian produce.
“Garden House will be an approachable, and seasonable contemporary restaurant in one of Britain’s best loved and historic cities,” an announcement read.
You’ve heard the spiel before – local food, high welfare meats, nurturing links with suppliers, a changing menu. Garden House, meanwhile, will be set in a broader development featuring a bar, cafe, and meeting space.
The food? Ah yes. “The summer menu is broad and varied”. Think ‘native oysters, gooseberry and jalapeno’, and ‘cured chalk stream trout with green almond dressing’. Main courses include ‘grilled Norfolk quail, pickled cherry and dandelion’, and ‘Herdwick hogget, roasted peppers and kelp sauce’.
Definitely one to look out for. It could be special.
