After relaunching the Elm Park Tavern in Brixton, Christopher Howe and Jamie Cottam-Allan are staying south for their next opening, the 100-seater all-day restaurant and bar Carmine, which is coming to Streatham this October. Carmine’s interior takes inspiration from iconic all-day brunch spaces in New York and Chicago, effortlessly transitioning from a work-minded environment by day to an intimate restaurant by night.

Those after a spot of brunch can look forward to dishes like smoked trout, poached duck egg & avocado on rye; wild mushrooms & smoked leeks on sourdough; and eggs, sausage, smoked back bacon, house baked beans, black pud’ toast & maple salted butter. Staying into the evening, however, you can shut your laptop lid and swap the coffee for low-intervention vino, pre-mixed cocktails and local craft beers. You’ll also be able to get your hands on small plates like rarebit, cheddar & beer croquettes with tomato chutney; karaage fried chicken; and burrata with pickled pineapple & anchovy and bigger dishes like pork steak with grilled peach, celeriac remoulade & beetroot ketchup; skate wing with black olive, artichoke & green beans: and vegan shawarma with beetroot slaw, herbed yogurt & housemade flatbread.

In celebration of the launch the Carmine team will be knocking 50% OFF food bills for bookings from 7th – 13th October, so there’s no excuse not to go.

Opens Thurs 7th October 2021
The High Parade, 20-21 Streatham High Road, London, SW16 1EX
