Wild by Tart, a restaurant, bar, deli, photography studio, retail store and event space will open in London’s Victoria in October.
The venue at Eccleston Yards is headed up by Jemima Jones and Lucy Carr-Ellison, the duo behind bespoke catering company Tart London, and Tom Warren, founder of Lock Studios.
Wild by Tart will be a neighbourhood restaurant housed in a former power station and coal store.
The menu will feature bites, small plates and sweets, all designed to share.
Dishes will include pulled pheasant croquettes with harissa yoghurt; clams, nduja and cider linguine; and smoked tomatoes, burrata and basil oil.
Sweets include grapefruit and basil posset; butterscotch pots; and homemade ice creams.
There will also be sourdough pizzas from a wood-burning oven, including spicy fennel sausage, pickled chilli, confit tomato and mozzarella; and mixed mushroom with taleggio and tarragon.
There are plans to keep the building’s arched roof structure, with a high glass panelled ceiling and skylights dating back to the 19th century. There will be counter dining at the open kitchen with communal tables, and a lounge area to enjoy cocktails from the bar.
A private dining room on a raised mezzanine will overlook the restaurant.
The retail space is in the restaurant and will showcase products and unique homeware and lifestyle pieces collected by the founders on their travels. Many of the items used in the restaurant will also be available for customers to buy.
Wild at Heart florists will be setting up home in the restaurant’s courtyard, selling bouquets, potted plants and hosting floral workshops in the studio and mezzanine.
There is also a 2,000sq. ft photography studio which will be available for private hire and as an events space.
The deli is already open, and includes a kiosk serving coffee, juices and smoothies. The menu features baked goods, homemade granola and seasonal breakfast options. Lunch features salads, soups, stews and pastries.
