The Nitery by Gizzi Erskine will run from St Martins Lane Kitchen between 13 February and 30 April 2020, bringing “playful” take on classic French, American and British dishes with “carefully sourced produce”.
The menu features “biodynamic” small plates, including devilled eggs with roast chicken crackling and oysters with yuzu kosho granita. Other dishes include roast beetroot and buttermilk soup, flagoelet dauphinoise and steak tartare with bone marrow. Sunday roasts and “nostalgic” desserts will also feature during her tenure at the London site.
The new restaurant is said to take inspiration from 20th Century Parisian ‘niteries’, “hedonistic, bohemian” restaurants that were later adopted by America. ‘The Nitery’ will aim to create an “electric, bon vivant” atmosphere in St Martins Lane Kitchen with “fun and inventive” menus.
Erskine has been an “integral” part of the London food scene for over 15 years. She has previously collaborated with Mark Hix, Angela Hartnett and Tom Kerridge, and operated a series of pop-ups across the capital over the last two decades. She is also the author of several cookbooks, and presented Channel 4’s cookery show Cook Yourself Thin.
