It's been a long time since I have been impressed this much, Red Rooster succeeded.
Located at The Curtain, the new kid in the members club block, Red Rooster Shoreditch is the baby boy from the original Rooster in Harlem, NY.
Expect the unexpected from this place. Imagine Southern American food and then mix it with NY vibe, then add European style to the mix. The result is uncanny.
Also, if you are into fashion and American Culture, this will be your mecca. Louis Vuitton themed doors, lots of references to american hip-hop and basketball and live-music while wining and dining. Am I dreaming?
Now cutting to the chase, FOOD. TCB went there for dinner and tasted:
For starters we had deviled Eggs filled with chicken skin aioli and duck jerky (I mean, HELLO!?) and a Southern Heritage salad, which had seared watermelon, heirloom tomato and burrata (an excellent mix, if you ask me).
Mains included a mixture of veggie options and Red Rooster's signature dishes: roasted cauliflower with chili and corn crumble, corn bread, Aunt Maybel's Dumplings (which are rather gnocchis, not your average chinese dumplings) and chicken, of course!!! Not to mention waffles were included...
My mouth is watering again just remembering our meal. Do not waste your time and head there ASAP!
