Rochelle Canteen at the ICA

OPENED 9 DAYS AGO

Margot Henderson and her business partner Melanie Arnold have opened a sister branch to their very popular restaurant of the same name, this time at The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).

The restaurant will serve food similar to the original site, in a new central location, reported Richard Vines for Bloomberg.

The Spot:

This is at The ICA, on St. James’. Speaking to the Evening Standard, Arnold said, ‘For me, galleries should feed your soul and mind… but also the tummy.’

The Food:

The food here is British and seasonal — very similar to the original restaurant. We’ve heard about a whole pig’s head to share, which is very much in keeping with the style of food served by Henderson in the original Rochelle Canteen and also at the famously nose-to-tail St. John, run by her husband Fergus.

We also love the sound of pheasant and trotter pie, a great way of using what can often be a dry bird, combining it with rich, gelatinous trotter.

There’s also plenty of veg, including a pumpkin soup, right in season now at the time of the launch.

Ben Coombs, who has spent time working at the original restaurant, will join the new site as head chef.

The Drinks:

There is also a bar, run by Arnold’s son Fin Spiteri, serving a short menu of tasteful classics (in keeping with the food coming from the kitchen) including beer, wine and cocktails.

In a Nutshell:

The original East London restaurant is extremely popular with chefs and those in the know; it’s one of London’s worst-kept ‘secret restaurants’. This new location is exciting and a lot more glamorous than the original — an exciting development for Arnold & Henderson.
