The Water House Project, an East London site created by chef Gabriel Waterhouse, is set for a permanent launch in September.
Founded in 2015, The Water House Project has traded from a semi-permanent bricks-and-mortar site on Mare Street since early 2020.
Relocating to Corbridge Crescent, the “social fine dining” restaurant will now operate over a larger, contemporary space close to Regent’s Canal.
Spanning 40-covers, the new restaurant will feature a state-of-the-art borderless kitchen, a standalone drinks area, two communal tables, and eight smaller tables.
The restaurant’s nine-course tasting menu changes entirely every month, and features Nordic elements over a Japanese grill.
Waterhouse, who honed his craft at Galvin la Chappelle, will work alongside sous chef Thomas Lemercier, who previously worked at the restaurant, Hide.
The inaugural menu’s features include, but are “not limited to”, a British lops pork belly donut with plum chutney, St Austell mussels and Jerusalem artichoke with chive and lemon, and Herdwick lamb, black garlic, polenta, and mint.
A vegetarian menu and monthly changing paired wines are also available at the restaurant.
