LOUIE LOUIE is a cafe during the day with excellent coffee, homemade cakes & sandwiches, guest chefs in the evenings plus all day brunch at the weekends.
In the evening… from Monday to Saturday, we transform into a bar & restaurant featuring rotating Chefs In Residence preparing a broad range of cuisines from NY to Iran, Tel Aviv to Oaxaca, Dulwich to Hiroshima, natural wines and local beers. On selected Sunday evenings, we operate supper clubs with WeFiFo .
FROM MONDAY 11 MARCH, we welcome our second evening Chefs In Residence for 2019, WHOLE BEAST. Sam Bryant (ex-Smokehouse) and Alicja Specjalna met at Peckham favourite, Coal Rooms, where Sam was head chef. Now the duo are going properly primitive with their new nose-to-tail concept, Whole Beast. Using flame, smoke, ember and ash to achieve subtle variances in flavour and texture – like pyromaniac sommeliers, matching different woods to different cuts for maximum taste – the pair pride themselves on using every element of the animal to ensure that absolutely nothing is wasted. Fat, bones, offal and all. If all this sounds just a bit too red blooded, fear not; veggies are given equal billing on Whole Beast’s thrillingly elemental menus. Our advice though? Embrace your inner caveman.
