Thursday 6 May, 09:50: This story has been updated with further information on Sunday in Brooklyn
Vibey all-day Brooklyn restaurant Sunday in ... Brooklyn appears to be getting ready to open in Notting Hill, west London this year, according to a job advert posted to employment database Caterer. The restaurant, which opened in south Williamsburg in 2016, serves brunch, lunch, and dinner, and is probably best known for its excessively Instagrammed malted pancakes, which come drenched in a salty, sweet lava flow of hazelnut maple praline and brown butter and are now simply known as Sunday Pancakes™. The restaurant has now confirmed that it will open at 98 Westbourne Grove, taking the spacious corner restaurant formerly occupied by Côte.
A company called 13th Street Hospitality is advertising for the head chef role in Notting Hill at a “well-established, high [sic] popular New York restaurant,” which lists, among its many requirements, “To be a Brand Ambassador, aligned with the SiB values: have talent, passion, be nurturing, and striving for excellence in all that you do.” SiB = Sunday in Brooklyn.
The restaurant, which also does a keen line in cocktails, lists amaro on its dessert menu, and offers inventive dinner lines like a tearable hamachi tartare alongside its breezy brunch menu of grain bowls and one-step-beyond-your-average steak, fried chicken sandwich, and egg dishes in New York.
In London, dishes are set to include a blend of modish bistronomy-esque cooking and sunny Americana: a whole artichoke smoked and served with saffron aioli plays grilled swordfish; skirt steak; and hummus. It will also have some familiar competition in Notting Hill: extremement French NYC bistro Buvette opened in the area in late 2020.
