On Saturday 25 January, Chef James Cochran will be celebrating Burns Night at 12:51 in Islington.
Diners will enjoy an especially curated five-course tasting menu drawing on James’ own Scottish roots. On the evening, Sunday Times bestselling author, Candice Carty-Williams, will be reading the address to the haggis.
On arrival, guests will be met with a welcome Boulevardier cocktail, a blend of sweet vermouth, Campari bitters and whisky, to toast to the evening ahead. Rather than assaulting your ears with traditional bagpipes, Cochran will select several musical pieces from hip-hop legends like Nas, Luniz and Jay Z that he feels embodies the spirit and vigour of the lauded poet, Robert Burns in a modern and fresh way.
Dishes include: treacle cured salmon with smoked cod’s roe garnished with apple, radish, mustard, cress on rye; cullen skink, a rich soup of smoked haddock, potatoes and onions; Highland venison tartar, rolled oats, confit egg yolk and Douglas fir cream; dlow poached chicken in whiskey butter, haggis, swede and a cracking cranachan for dessert made with raspberries, Scottish oats, double cream and whisky.
Tickets are priced at £100 per person include all food and two complimentary drinks on the night. Wines, cocktails and beers will also be available to order from the restaurant’s regular drinks list.
