CÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ¨s, a brand-new restaurant from London-based French-Sicilian chef, Camille Tardieu, is now open in Stoke Newington’s Newington Green.
CÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ¨s unites Provencal, Sicilian and Mediterranean cooking with London’s global culinary influences. The Kickstarter-funded restaurant offers contemporary dishes in a tasteful, relaxed setting.
There is a changing seasonal menu and the January menu includes: turnip and hazelnut milk gratin dauphinois with enoki mushrooms; monkfish with nduja and persillade; octopus with saffron aioli and winter vegetables; brisket and pancetta ragÃƒÂ¹served on homemade pappardelle pasta; cauliflower roasted in date syrup served with swede and confit garlic puree; and cider-braised pork cheeks wrapped in Savoy cabbage with chestnut cream.
In addition to a weekly homemade gelato special, desserts include dark chocolate mousse with halva, blood orange sorbet and pomegranate; polenta and almond cake with quince, vanilla, earl grey and crÃƒÂ¨me fraiche.
There’s also the option of a cheese course featuring a selection of British cheeses.
All ingredients at CÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ¨s are sourced from local or small suppliers, with the wine list representing boutique vineyards from across Southern Europe (including France, Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey and Croatia); craft beers brewed in London; British cheeses from The Cheese Merchant; meats from H. G. Walter; fish from Cornwall; and seasonal vegetables from Newington Green Fruit & Veg.
CÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ¨s works closely with The Food Chain to ensure suppliers are sustainable and ethically sourced.
CÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ¨s is currently open for dinner from 6pm Tuesday to Saturday, with 30 covers per sitting, taking reservations online as well as walk-ins. Guests are invited to dine a la carte, choosing from a selection of sharing plates to build their own tasting menu.
