Crispin has announced a new chef residency in the form of Michael Thompson, once of Fera at Claridge’s under Simon Rogan, and Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social.
Thompson will join having worked as the head chef at Cub in Hoxton, and will present food that “celebrates, and showcases his talent for, sustainable luxury”.
His menu will be available from Tuesday March 10 to Saturday April 25 at the all-day café, restaurant and natural wine bar in Spitalfields. Menus will rotate weekly.
An announcement chimed: “Thompson will explore unique British produce as well as every aspect of sustainability that can be brought into a venue, gracing the east London restaurant with fascinating dishes such as Squid with egg yolk, smoked Jerusalem artichoke dashi and nori; Jersey Royals with wild garlic and chicken fat vinaigrette; and a Hogweed, whiskey, pear and buckwheat popcorn dessert.”
Plates range from £4 to £17.50 and Crispin is once again offering its signature ‘one of everything’ deal, to share between two, priced at £64.
