Boards, Bowls & Platters

From a 'bowl food' restaurant to sustainably sourced seafood by the bucketful, Londoners are being served up food in various novel and unusual ways.

By bucket 

A Notting Hill based restaurant and bar serving up sustainably sourced seafood by the bucketful. As well as the buckets, which include prawns, whitebait and calamari, prepared in a number of different styles, another speciality are its rustic boards of grilled fish and meat served with a signature house sauce - alongside dishes such as crayfish burger, seafood spaghetti, salads and raw and cured seafood. The design is reminiscent of a weatherworn yet rustically luxurious beach club with seats at the bar and high tables at the pass looking onto the open kitchen. There's also a separate bar area offering a selection of signature cocktails as well as seafood bites, including a lobster toasty, squid ink crackers, and a fish-finger sandwich.

By platter 

The bespoke food platter catering company, has opened its first coffee shop just a stone’s throw from Hyde Park. The coffee shop, aptly named ‘Platter’, specialises in handmade food platters. Designing a whole new range specifically for the coffee shop, Platter offers Mini Platters, consisting of sweet or savoury bites for one or two people; Platter Boxes and Picnic Platters, which have been designed to be taken out and enjoyed in the park. Customers will also have the chance to place orders for large bespoke platters instore with the opportunity to chat directly with the platter professionals about their requirements. Alongside the food platters, Platter serves an extensive range of artisanal coffees, teas, hot chocolates, iced coolers and other soft drinks.

By numbers 

A new sharing concept restaurant in the heart of Victoria Park Village. At Fayre Share, diners can share classic British home-cooking style dishes such as roasted beer chicken, Shepherd's Pie and Arctic roll with jelly - with all dishes available for 1, 2 or 4 people. Meaning that a table could all share the same dish as they would at home. Fayre Share has also been designed to have the feel of a home, with features including a covered garden, fireplace and a kitchen island bar. 

By bowl

Bowls - is an all-day Soho restaurant that does what it says - it serves bowl food! The seasonal menu features a selection of bowls, big and small from the Caribbean, South America and South East Asia; from Jamaican jerk chicken to tuna poke to ‘Zari-Pho’ - braised pork belly, with homemade broth. Also on the menu is grilled, ethically-sourced meat alongside nourishing soups and salads and a range of signature sips and Prosecco on tap.
