The team behind Covent Garden’s legendary Joe Allen have opened Mustard for brunch, lunch and dinner following a successful soft opening in Brook Green. Drawing on their wealth of experience, founders Lawrence Hartley, Tim Healey and Head Chef Jason Wild have unveiled a relaxed, British style brasserie serving light and comforting dishes.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to Mustard in the best way we know how – with a menu full of comforting dishes, and an emphasis on great British produce” says co-founder Lawrence. “Brook Green is the ideal spot for Mustard, that we hope will become the friendly face for locals and visitors alike,”adds Tim.
Head Chef, Jason draws on his experience at Daphne’s and more recently Joe Allen whilst Tim and Lawrence have fused their years as restaurateurs having both opened celebrated restaurants in Twickenham, with Lawrence opening Brula in 1999 and Tim opening A Cena in 2001 before joining forces at Joe Allen in 2012.
The restaurant’s design continues to draw inspiration from the British countryside with wood paneling, mustard leather banquets and hues of warm green. Housed in a former Victorian grocery shop, Design LSM have retained many of the building’s features with the original tiled panels bordering the walls.
The brass-topped bar is punctuated with leather studded stools and the restaurant’s al-fresco area boasts a chequered tiled floor and a soft yellow awning. Mustard’s walls are hung with artwork inspired by Britain’s greats from Frances Bacon to Barbara Hepworth and Turner.
