Arbutus’ Anthony Demetre to launch City pop-up at Tower 42

This October, Arbutus chef-patron Anthony Demetre will launch a 12-week pop-up in the City’s Tower 42.

Opening on 1 October, AD12 atT42 will be a chance for the Michelin-starred chef to bring his refined bistro dishes to a wider audience; as such, he will serve favourites from Arbutus – from the restaurant’s signature squid-and-mackerel burger, and crisp pig’s head with potato purée and pickled turnip, to rabbit saddle and shoulder with roast carrots and autumn greens – as well as new dishes such as slow-poached egg with warm potato velouté and pink-grapefruit relish, and sheep's ricotta gnudi with Muscat grapes, autumn squash and olive ‘crumble’.

The pop-up will be open for lunch and dinner, Mondays to Fridays, until 20 December. Lunchtime diners will be able to choose from an à la carte or set menu, while evening guests will be offered a three, four or five-course tasting menu.

To book a table, email reservations@ad12.co.uk or call 020 7877 7703. For more information, visit the pop-up’s website.

Autumn will see Tower 42 bid farewell to Gary Rhodes, who has successfully run Rhodes Twenty Four at the venue for 10 years. The AD12 atT42 pop-up will mark the beginning of a new era for Tower 42 – with more collaborations in the pipeline before Jason Atherton launches his next London restaurant in the spring.
