Joel Braham, Alex Coppard and Oded Mizrachi’s Good Egg 2.0 will reflect seasonal, British produce, influenced by the cooking of exilic Jews all over the world. The new all-day menu will include: slow braised Hanukah-style brisket hash packed with caramelized onions, home-fries, Russian dressing & pickles, topped with a fried egg; the Challah French toast sandwich with white peach jam, candied pecans and crème fraiche; and Sabih – an Iraqi aubergine pita with tahini, mango amba, dak dak, pickles and zhoug.

The dinner menu will be built around the charcoal-fired Israeli Mangals, a pita oven and the on-site smoker with Pastrami cured salmon and caper schmear; Za’atar fried chicken thighs with chilli honey; and. Baharat roasted delicia pumpkin with toasted nigella seeds, house labneh and femented herb stalk oil.

Alongside the all-day menu, the in-house bakery will offer homemade, freshly baked breads and cakes, with the counter stacked with challah, hand-rolled bagels and Oded’s ever-popular babka, as well as hot Manoushi flatbread with honey and za’atar from the wood-fired oven. A selection of North American-inspired bagels, hearty sandwiches and colourful, Middle Eastern salads will also be available to takeaway.

The Good Egg raised £600,000 in a recent crowdfunding campaign for their Soho site, with investments from friends, family, patrons, neighbours, social media followers and private investors
