SquareMeal Review of Wharf Kitchen

Local visitors to Vyner Street’s Wharf Kitchen will be delighted to recognise a familiar face behind the counter – that of chef Matthew Casey, latterly of near-neighbour This Bright Field. Casey is a talented chap and his short daily menus always go above and beyond. Austrian ‘gulasch’ (soup) or smashed avocado with tomato relish and feta on rye are joined by a slow-cooked daily special such as mince and tatties, while drinks bring organic Columbian coffee, juices and cocktails (the latter on Friday nights only for now). Wharf Kitchen serves as a canteen for the Lime Wharf ‘cultural innovation hub’, and it’s a fashionably bare, rather rustic room with German ‘Biergarten’ tables brightened up by displays of fresh produce and vintage crockery. Casey and co also cater for special events within Lime Wharf itself.

Anna r. 14 November 2013

Great find while on the school holidays last week, Gary had the home smoked duck ham which he gave the two big thumbs up. I had a roasted pumpkin and squash salad with a poached duck egg which was lovely. This place is a must, shame its not open at the weekend when we are off work, however speaking to the young manger he informed me that the cafe was a place to feed the workers of Vyner street and does have music and food nights every Friday night. WE will be back for. Great find …
