Masterchef winner opens Hello Darling restaurant

Masterchef 2013 winner Natalie Coleman has announced she is to launch a new restaurant in partnership with theatrical set designers Darling and Edge and arts venue The Vaults.

Based behind the Old Vic theatre in London’s Waterloo area, Hello Darling aims to make guests to feel like they are drinking and dining inside a work of art.

The restaurant will offer sharing dishes from Coleman, which aim to celebrate “the noble vegetable and pairing colours as well as flavours”. Examples from the light menu include:

  • Miso-glazed Tuna Carpaccio, Wasabi, Watermelon, Radish
  • Smoked Haddock Scotch Egg, Tartar Sauce, Seaweed
  • Harissa Quail with Pearled Cous-Cous, Sumac, Yoghurt
  • Slow-Braised Lamb with Butterbean and Nettle Pesto
  • Radicchio with Spiced Walnuts, Heritage Beetroot, Blood Orange and Quinoa

  • Rhubarb and Frangipane Tart, Spiced Syrup, Almonds, Vanilla

Alongside the stunning food menu will be a botanical cocktail menu consisting of a floral and herbaceous section, including Rosemary and Apricot Caipirinhas, Jasmine Collins and Honeysuckle Gin Fizzes.

The restaurant features a theatrical style and features an 80-cover dining area, layered with hand-painted furniture, frescoed ceilings and theatrical artwork. Designed to resemble a house, bookable spaces invite patrons to sit on the kitchen worktops, in the bedroom or in the bathtub.
