Square Meal Review of LeCoq ?

Billed as a simple neighbourhood rotisserie, Le Coq is the brainchild of the two Morris sisters: Ana is a Leith’s-trained chef who has cooked at Rochelle Canteen, La Trompette etc, while Sanja helped to found the Salt Yard group. Their new venue offers a weekly changing menu of two or three courses built around free-range Suffolk chickens served with triple-cooked chips and sides such as rainbow chard with pancetta. Starters include charred broad bean pods with dill crème fraîche, while desserts feature seasonal ideas such as gooseberry and elderflower custard tart alongside artisan ice creams from Sorbitum. On Sundays, punters can look forward to communal treats in the shape of suckling pig, beef shank or sea bass. Prosecco on tap, off-piste wines and takeaways complete the offer.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Le Coq, Islington

    Le Coq is a restaurant that specialises in spit roast chicken and is based in Islington – the Highbury and Islington end that is, it’s quite a walk from Angel tube station! Seeing as we don’t venture out of Soho or London Bridge that often plus the fact that I love a bit of chicken, we thought we’d give it a go. It’s based in a former Chinese restaurant, not that you’d know it as it now has a pub vibe going on...

    Agent Restauranteur :: Le Coq – London N1

    It isn’t often I have a roast for my dinner, and on those rare occasions when I do, chicken certainly isn’t my preferred meat. However, Le Coq serves up such a fabulous feast of rotisserie chicken that I couldn’t help but be charmed. This is roast dinner with a difference. And I liked it...
