Dublin chef Anna Haugh is set to open her first restaurant in London this coming April.
Called Myrtle, in reference to Ballymaloe House co-owner and Michelin starred chef Myrtle Allen, the restaurant in Chelsea will focus on "Sophisticated yet informal dishes". Once open, the menu will include dishes such as celeriac wellington with tarragon and cep mushroom duxelle, crispy stuffed chicken wings with wild trompette purée, and buttermilk panna cotta.
Chef Haugh, originally from Tallaght, has previously held Michelin stars at restaurants including Pied a Terre, as well as working alongside Gordon Ramsay. She began her career cooking at l'Ecrivain with Derry Clarke. She has long advocated Irish ingredients and will be using Myrtle as a platform to highlight some of her favourite Irish products.
