Pollen Street Social owner Jason Atherton (pictured, right) will open a second London restaurant in March 2013 – this time in Soho.
The new restaurant, The Social Eating House, will be located on 58-59 Poland Street; its kitchens will be headed up by Atherton’s long-standing head chef at Pollen Street Social, Paul Hood.
The dining room will be spread over three areas: a ground floor, first floor and mezzanine, with a chef’s table located in the basement kitchen.
The Social Eating House will be a much more informal offering than at Atherton’s flagship, with an affordably priced bistro menu replacing the perfectly pitched British dishes that won Pollen Street Social the Square Meal BMW Restaurant of the Year award in December 2011.
Atherton said: ‘I’m really excited to be going into partnership with Paul, who has worked with me for over six years. He’s one of the most talented chefs I have ever come across.’
