Corbin & King to open new brasserie in autumn

Corbin & King is set to bring a new brasserie, Bellanger to Islington Green near the Angel in North London this autumn.

The 195-cover restaurant - with extra room for 24 on the terrace - will offer a relaxed, all-day brasserie menu, from breakfast through to dinner, that displays a distinct nod to the Alsatian roots of the original Parisian brasseries.

The kitchen, headed up by Lee Ward, will serve up dishes such as choucroute, baeckoff and a range of tartes flambées, soups, salads, seafood, plats du jour and a number of sharing dishes.

The wine list will be principally French-based, with a focus on the wines of North Eastern France and the border region with Germany. Also, traditional dark and blonde Alsace-Lorraine beers will be served on tap, including a range of monastic beers.
