Native

OPENED February 01st, 2016

‘BEST OPENINGS OF 2016’ WINNER

Nostalgic Londoners after an actual piece of the British countryside: tuck into Native, a restaurant in popular Covent Garden thoroughfare Neal’s Yard focusing on ‘foraged’ food and ‘country thrift’.

Co-founders Imogen Davis and Ivan Tisdall-Downes have no beef with the countryside: Imogen dirties her hands working for her family’s falconry business, and Ivan graduated from Devon’s prestiguous River Cottage chef school before starting on the London street food scene. They want to make seasonal British game dishes accessible and ‘understood’ to non-food pros, with innovative dishes inspired by the whirlwind that surrounds the street food scene: Pidgeon Kebab and Southern Fried Rarebit sound like delicious ways to deconstruct the pomp and snobbery associated with game.
