Tuesday 21 June will see Strut & Cluck opening its doors to become Shoreditch’s latest speciality food outlet.
The restaurant will serve dishes inspired by Eastern Mediterranean home cooking, with free-range turkey meat served in new and exciting ways alongside seasonal ingredients.
The restaurant, owned and run by Amir and Limor Chen, will use cooking methods that complement the taste of the raw ingredients, such as grilling the turkey in a charcoal oven and roasting, avoiding deep frying and saturated fats.
Music curated especially for the restaurant will complement a selection of cocktails and craft beers.
The 75-cover restaurant is divided into several spaces, including a central bar for 12 diners, clad in tiles resembling the vivid feather formations of a strutting turkey.
The largest seating area is designed to evoke an outside terrace, filled with hanging baskets, lanterns and natural light.
There is a private dining room for eight guests inspired by the Bauhaus architectural style prevalent in the vibrant Mediterranean city of Tel Aviv, with period pieces and decorations from the founders’ own collection.
Following a successful residency at Shoreditch House in November 2015, the new permanent site is set to be bright and airy, the décor inspired by the founders’ love of natural materials, with an eclectic collection of found and bought furniture and decorations, including Limor’s own works of art.
