Only Food and Courses is a new modern British restaurant based in a 40ft repurposed shipping container
The restaurant offers guests a modern take on food and interiors inspired by popular culture and culinary trends from the 80s and 90s.
Developed by chef Robbie Lorraine, the restaurant launched at the end of last year and offers guests high-end food, delivered in casual, unpretentious surroundings - all modelled around the famous ‘Greasy Spoon’ cafes.
Since the launch, the restaurant has already received critical acclaim from top food critic, Jay Rayner.
The Only Food and Courses launch follows a series of successful pop-up events in Kent, where Lorraine and his team offered guests his unique take on food inspired by his childhood. Dishes on the menu include 'crab scotch eggs', ‘confit duck eclairs’, ‘Pop tarts‘ and ‘lobster doughnuts’.
Lorraine is a multi award-winning chef who has worked at high profile restaurants, venues and events ranging from Roux Fine Dining, The Shard, Royal Ascot, and Chelsea Football Club.
The 26-seater Pop Brixton site is the first for the business, with a London high-street site earmarked for early 2022. It will be open from 12-4pm for walk-in light/brunch menus, and offer a weekly changing tasting menu with a choice of two, four, or six courses for dinner, from 6-10pm every Thursday to Saturday.
Lorraine said: “I’ve always had a vision for something like this so I’m really excited to be bringing it to life now. Food brings back so many memories for people and I really enjoy tapping into some of these with some modern twists on things we used to eat.
“We live in strange times so I hope some of these warm memories of our childhood will give people some comfort! I’m having lots of fun with the menu.”
Opening hours - 12-4pm for light/brunch menus Friday – Sunday with the infamous 6 course Supper Club returning with two sittings 6 - 8pm and 8 – 10pm every Thursday - Saturday.
