PipsDishWhat began as a pop-up, open for eighteen months at a Citroen Garage in Islington, now becomes a permanent restaurant as PipsDish opens in Covent Garden. Set up by Philip Dundas, a BBC producer turned cook, and his kitchen partner Mary Doherty, PipsDish is a small, homely restaurant serving different dishes each day. With communal wooden benches, shelves stacked with books and an open kitchen at the back of the room, the restaurant creates the impression of dining at home. A lack of menus continues this concept, inviting diners to simply turn up and indulge on the surprise that is put before them. Examples include oxtail glazed with rhubarb, venison burgers with tzatziki, chicken served in a creamy leek, pancetta and lemon crème fraîche sauce, and smoked salmon pate with lemony hummus. Give them advance notice if you have any food allergies. A unique feature of the Covent Garden restaurant is Pip's Hut, a cosy mountain hut in the back yard with private dining for up to 8 people. Having built up a loyal following with their homely cooking and supperclub atmosphere as exemplified by their restaurant, The Lunch Club in Hoxton Square, PipsDish Covent Garden is sure to be a popular addition, and its central location mean it's ideal for pre- or post-theatre eating.
