Roberta Hall-McCarron hosts London pop-up

Edinburgh-based chef Roberta Hall-McCarron will be serving her modern spin on Scottish cuisine at 180 Corner on the Strand on 24 and 25 May.

Hall-McCarron opened her first restaurant, The Little Chartroom in June 2018 in the Scottish capital, followed by Eleanore three years later. She previously also worked in the city’s Michelin-starred TheKitchin, run by chef Tom Kitchin.

While 180 Corner is perhaps better known for its wood-fired pizza sold by the slice and toasties, in the evening it regularly hosts guest chefs who bring their own flair and technique to proceedings. The two day pop-up will feature a seven-course Scottish-inspired menu from Hall-McCarron:

Oyster, Arbroath smokie dashi

Ham hock dauphine, piccalilli

Pea tart, garlic, courgette, kombu, cured tofu

Asparagus, morels, roast chicken hollandaise, milk bun

Raw scallop, basil, pine nut, tomato ponzu

Lamb, Merguez sausage, buttermilk, trombetta, anchovy butter flatbread

Vanilla panna cotta, strawberry, honeycomb

The food itself will set diners back £75, excluding drinks. As far as beverages go, 180 Corner will be offering a range of cocktails and natural wines that have been designed to pair with the Hall-McCarron’s menu.
