The team behind two of our fave restaurants, Westerns Laundry and Primeur are opening a new bakery and restaurant named Jolene. Located on Newington Green (no we don’t know if it’s named after the Dolly song) in the site which first housed Newington Table, followed by Dandy and then Curators Coffee we’re hoping it’s fourth time lucky and if anyone can make it work they can – have you tried getting a walk-in table at Primeur!
Bakers Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim and David Gingell will be working with farmer Andy Cato to source grain from two UK farms which’ll then be milled daily for breads, croissants, buns, madeleines and sausage rolls. There’ll be a daily changing daytime menu of fresh pastas, stews and salads, and come evening, you can expect dishes like grilled cod on the bone with olives and artichokes; T-bone with parmesan and rocket; and bread, apricot and butter pudding.
Like Westerns Laundry and Primeur, the wine list will feature natural bottles but the list will be smaller to allow for more beers, ciders and cocktails as well as juices and in-house ferments on the drinks menu. No word as to whether or not Jolene will be on the playlist…
Opens Tues 18th September 2018
21 Newington Green, London, N16 9PU
