A former chef at Michelin-starred restaurants The Square, Pied à Terre and Bob Bob Ricard in Soho, Haugh has drawn inspiration from her Irish heritage for the menu at her debut restaurant Myrtle.

Dublin born Haugh, who began her career at the city’s l’Ecrivain restaurant, said Langton Street’s Myrtle will offer “sophisticated yet informal dishes”.

The Modern European menu features a crispy stuffed chicken wing with wild trompette purée, slow confit Goatsbridge trout with cauliflower and capers, a buttermilk panna cotta, rhubarb jelly and cinnamon doughnuts.

As well as championing Irish cooking, Haugh is an advocate of female chefs and the restaurant’s name Myrtle is rumoured to pay homage to Myrtle Allen who was the first head chef at Ireland’s renowned Ballymaloe House.
