Set to launch this summer on Stoke Newington High Street, Octaves Kitchen will serve up a buffet-style menu of Afro-Caribbean dishes

DJ and Broadcaster Sian Anderson has announced that she’ll be opening her debut restaurant, Octaves Kitchen, at the former site of Italian spot Wolf. As well as running her own record label (Saint Music), a youth mentoring programme (Nexxt Step) and her daytime spot on BBC 1Xtra, Anderson’s a total foodie. She has her own cookbook, Sian And (H)er Son, which was inspired by the recipes she and her son Elijah cooked up over lockdown and recently released the TV show Big Money Munch where she and a guest check out Black-owned restaurants across the country.

Full details of the launch haven’t been released just yet, but from the restaurant’s Instagram, we can gather that there’ll be a buffet-style menu of meat, fish and vegan small plates. Expect to see the likes of:

  • Curry goat
  • Braised oxtail
  • Fried fish
  • Peppered prawns
  • Ackee fried rice
  • Jerk tofu

There’ll also be a range of sides such as mini mac & cheese, plantains and jollof rice and the all-you-can-eat option will be priced at £20 for adults and £10 for children. That’s all we’ve got for now; we’re looking forward to hearing more about this new opening, check back for info as it comes.
