X-Upper

OPENED 24 DAYS AGO

A new single item restaurant arrives on Islington’s Upper Street: X-Upper.

X-Upper specialises in gourmet sausages, aiming to transform the street food-style snack into a true delicacy.

X-Upper - Cumberland sausage

The Spot:

Before you take a seat and explore the menu centred around sausages, just know that the X-Upper team walked 152km across Europe and tested 513 sausages in their quest to find the standout sort you’ll be eating. With room for up to 80 people inside and a large outside terrace to come, X-Upper definitely has plans to make sausages the next big thing (pun unintended).

X-Upper - Olma sausage

The Food:

They’ve even brought in chef Francesco di Marzio (of two Michelin-starred restaurant the Greenhouse) and James Tanner (from Saturday Kitchen), who have whittled those 513 sausages down to six with accompanying sauces. The menu includes everything from English Cumberland sausages (drizzled in beetroot ketchup) to spicy merguez with piquillo pepper yogurt and even a “skinny chick” variety featuring lighter 7% fat chicken sausage. And of course, you can’t open a sausage restaurant without including the classic Swiss bratwurst, served with purple mustard and pickled red cabbage.

The Drinks:

The perfect pair, X-Upper serves craft beers from FourPure brewery, as well as wines and soft drinks.

X-Upper - chorizo sausage

The Damage:

Sausages are priced between £8 and £12.

In a Nutshell:

A sausage-focused restaurant might not sound appetising to all, but with meat sourced from Europe’s best butchers and some great chefs behind the menu, X-Upper doesn’t sound like the wurst…

Celebrating the opening, X-Upper will be giving away 250 sausages on Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd.
