Gareth Ward of Ynyshir in Wales and Josh Eggleton of the Pony and Trap near Bristol are among the highly rated chefs lined up for month-long residencies at a new brasserie in the City of London.
Revolve, in the Broadgate development near Liverpool Street station, is billed as a “brasserie extraordinaire” and scheduled to open in April. It will have a permanent menu of brasserie classics from Paris and New York supplemented by four dishes created by each month’s guest chef, who will also contribute special lunches and dinners.
The concept has been put together by Adamo, a new hospitality outfit headed by chief executive Tris Hillier, formerly of Corney & Barrow and Pitcher & Piano. He says: “We wanted to create a local brasserie with heart, soul and vibrancy where everyone could enjoy wonderful wines and exceptional food but importantly, we also wanted some flexibility to invite our industry chef friends down to showcase their talents. The concept of Revolve was born and we look forward to sharing fantastic times in the City.”
Lee Westcott, well known from the former Typing Room in Bethnal Green, will be the first guest chef, and Anna Hansen of the Modern Pantry has also been signed up.
