This July, Mayfair will have a new neighbourhood dining experience in the form of Moncks of Dover St. Moncks is an all-day brasserie with a menu that focusses on produce-led dishes executed and presented to the high standards that one expects of a top West End restaurant.
What is Moncks about?
From the team behind the unique and luxurious Chinese dining concept, Park Chinois, Moncks is a very different foodie destination. However, they both share the same ethos on quality and expertly sourced ingredients. The inspiration behind the name comes from Christopher Moncks, who was a 16th Century local maverick who owned the sprawling estate of Clarendon House, which included Dover Street, Albemarle Street and Bond Street. His sense of fun and adventure, and his unique character, is why his name has been honoured by this new brasserie.
Tell Us About The Food
Open from 7:30am to midnight, every Monday to Friday and from 9am and 10am respectively at the weekend, the menu will reflect a combination of classic dishes alongside those which are influenced by the cosmopolitan tastes of the capital.
Meet for breakfast and try the signature Truffled Benedict (artichoke and black truffle, organic poached eggs, hollandaise sauce on English muffin) or The Full Vegan, a fresh take on the traditional Full English with vegan “fried eggs”. Moncks has an all-day menu, allowing guests to enjoy the likes of Caesar salad with roasted, corn fed chicken or sole meunière with toasted almonds for lunch.
In addition, diners can enjoy dinner-time delights like pan-fried monkfish with seafood jus, seasonal vegetables and gremolata or roasted baby leg of lamb with spiced couscous, sautéed shallots, apricots and pomegranates.
Who will lead the kitchen?
The kitchen at Moncks of Dover St is led by Executive Chef Gennaro Vitto and Head Chef, Valentino Pepe, who have been working alongside each other at Park Chinois since 2012. Both hailing from the South of Italy, these two chefs are incredibly passionate about every ingredient that they use and the way it’s presented on the plate.
When does it open?
Moncks opens on Wednesday 3rd July
