Review on Lupins
Lupins is a vibrant newcomer located in the new foodie hub of Flat Iron Square under the historic railway arches in London's Bankside. The driving force behind this new venture is chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke, who met while working in the kitchens at Medlar in Chelsea and then later went on to create The Cooking Collective, an event and catering company. The restaurant takes its name from a traditional British flower, whose seeds are popular snacks in the Mediterranean and Latin America.
Goldstein Wein architects have created a modern and relaxed space with exposed brickwork of the railway arch wall, together with light wood panelling. A palette of pinks, greens and yellows gives a warm inviting ambience, and walls are decorated with poems written in a pretty rose gold font.
Concise menus are based on British small plates with global influences along the lines of Cornish crab thermidor and crusty bread, or for meat fans there's spiced beef short rib, purple sprouting broccoli. To finish there's just one dessert such as rhubarb with ginger, vanilla yoghurt and shortbread or you could opt for a plate of Neal's Yard cheeses.
On the drinks front, there's craft beers, a monthly changing cocktail list and natural, organic and biodynamic wines from the independent wine company, Smashing Wines.
