Michelin starred BRAT's pop-up turned permanent fixture in Hackney
BRAT Climpson’s Arch is the second venture of Michelin starred BRAT’s head chef Thomas Barry, formerly of Kitty Fischers. This was intended as a COVID pop-up but has since stood the test of time thus far and was reported as going permanent on my Sunday brunch visit. I’m sure there are some quality dishes in the mix here as the menu is very similar to the Michelin starred version in Shoreditch, but sadly this cannot be said for the brunch menu which you will need to spend a lot of money for the one dish option with an egg (which perhaps should be a staple item on any brunch menu). This really didn’t work for me and I simply can’t recommend this brunch menu on the selection and small dishes tried, especially as the plum jam had far too much sweetness and utterly overpowered the mangalista (Hungarian ham).
