Chef Anna Haugh will open her first solo restaurant in March. Myrtle, in Chelsea, will look to Haugh’s Irish heritage for inspiration, according to Hot Dinners — the restaurant will open on Langton Street, on the former L’Oud des Eurasie site.

In contrast to the Michelin-starred restaurants further back in her career, including The Square, Pied a Terre, and Soho’s Bob Bob Ricard, where she was executive chef, the debut restaurant will offer a relaxed experience, with “sophisticated yet informal dishes,” albeit with a nod to the Chelsea postcode. On the menu, that translates as crispy stuffed chicken wing with wild trompette purée, celeriac wellington with tarragon and cep mushroom duxelle, and buttermilk panna cotta, rhubarb jelly and cinnamon doughnuts.

Haugh has long advocated for platforming Irish producers, using her social media presence to highlight the country’s produce and provenance as part of an Irish food renaissance that is yet to be keenly felt in London, as well as discussing the need for change in macho kitchen culture. Myrtle’s website also states that “an empowered and engaged team leads to the best possible dining experience for customers.” Indeed it does.

More soon, including an opening date.
