Whyte & Brown, Soho

Chicken, eggs and beer under one handsome roof. Need we say more? Well, we do anyway...

Chicken. Eggs. If only there was some old saying involving these key ingredients that I could contort into a painful introduction to Whyte & Brown, a new fowl-focused restaurant in London’s Carnaby Street. But as nothing springs to mind, I’ll have to wing it. Whyte & Brown’s concept will have the ethically-minded poultry farmers of Britain dancing a celebratory jig – you could say they’ll be cock-a-hoop, but I’m above that kind of schtick – as the menu is almost entirely based on free-range chicken and/or egg dishes. Bangkok Scotch Egg and Vietnamese Minced Chicken Salad are the kind of thing you’ll enjoy on a visit here, and the menu has recently had a revamp to include a selection of craft beers to accompany the food, which can only be a good thing.

Bringing in creative studio Blacksheep to design a restaurant is one of the most sensible moves a restaurateur can make, and the firm’s Laura Elwick has come up with another belter to add to the Blacksheep CV with the Whyte & Brown job. A couple of our favourite moves is a use of contrasting materials (see for example the metal panelling and tables paired with old wooden chairs) and period features popping up here and there; the butler sink water refill station is an interesting addition to the dining area.
