Wildflower by Adrian Martin is set to open in Camden’s new eco market, Buck Street, on 18 March 2020.
Wildflower is the debut London restaurant of Irish chef, Adrian Martin, and is the first fine dining restaurant in London to be housed inside a shipping container.
The restaurant will “seek to reinvent the idea of fine dining”, and will be Camden High Street’s only fine dining restaurant at present.
The “intimate” space will seat only 30 covers, and will aim to “marry sustainability with fine dining”. It will feature seasonally changing menus inspired by Martin’s Irish heritage, and will focus on using locally sourced produce, with every dish featuring one foraged ingredient.
The eight course tasting menu will be priced at £60 per person or £110 per person to include a paired wine flight. Dishes will include onion and bacon bread, scallop with smoked burdock and turbot with courgette flower and broth.
A two or three-course lunch menu will also be available for £26 or £35 per person, respectively.
Wildflower will also make use of Buck Street’s communal garden terrace, where it will grow herbs and shoots to be used in its dishes. Food waste will be composted and used to generate energy that will be used to produce electricity for the market.
At just 28 years old, Martin often features on Irish television and has built an “impressive profile” amongst the `Irish cooking scene. He previously worked at MacNean House, and prior to that was head pastry chef at Michelin-starred Bon Appetite.
