Following on from the success of their Notting Hill eatery, the Parisian group of friends behind Cocotte—who include co-founder cum chef Romain Bourrillon—have hotfooted east to the heart of Hoxton, opening a second restaurant on Hoxton Square.
The 60-cover eatery is split over two floors and boasts a petite outdoor terrace overlooking the garden square. Exposed brick walls and the sort of industrial edge this part of Shoreditch is renowned for is softened by plants and climbing ivy, slick marble tabletops, and splashes of colour.
In the open kitchen, French farm-to-table free-range chickens are marinated in Cocotte’s secret recipe for 24 hours and prepared along with fresh salads and sides, and seven homemade sauces including the Cocotte mustard, spicy, and truffle Mayo. Alongside the chicken served full, half, or as a quarter, diners can opt for a French cheese plate, veggie basket and wings, or unctuous truffle mac and cheese, all washed down with crafted cocktails, beers, and wines.
Healthy, homemade, and finger-lickin’ good y’all, Cocotte Hoxton brings haute-rotisserie to London’s hip-side.
