A new sustainable seafood and wine bar is coming to Crouch End
Lyon’s Seafood & Wine Bar will open its doors in Crouch End this October!
Lyon’s will focus on exceptional, sustainable seafood from the British Isles and showcasing independent wine producers. With over twenty years of experience in the restaurant industry overseeing front of house, Anthony Lyon has set about creating a local wine bar and restaurant with flair.
Head Chef, Talia Prince takes the helm of the kitchen, working alongside award-winning Sommelier Kelvin McCabe who oversees the wine list.
Lyon’s menus will be decided by the fresh catch of the day boats, with much of it cooked over charcoal. Dishes include the daily changing chilled and fire-roasted shellfish platters, whole roasted fish of the day to share, and a whole side of Var salmon with a mustard glaze.
The menu will also feature a carefully selected meat dish which will change regularly, beginning with the Iberico pork secreto with black garlic, cooked on the Robata grill. Seasonal vegetables are also celebrated, in dishes like the Delica pumpkin satay, and the barley risotto with celeriac, hazelnuts and bone marrow.
Lyon’s ethos is to respect the whole fish, and make use of as many of the delicious underused cuts and “offal” parts as possible, which are commonly wasted. She hopes to do justice to every part of the incredible array of fish and shellfish available in the UK, and this ‘fin to tail’ approach to fish work is reflected in dishes such as miso fish collars with seaweed butter, and the scallop roe taramasalata with fish skin crisps.
Oysters will be celebrated, with Lyon’s pairing each oyster on their menu with a garnish to amplify and compliment their specific natural flavour.
A classic seafood platter based on the day’s shellfish catch will be available either chilled and served with an array of dipping sauces, or roasted over charcoal, with lashings of their house smoked seaweed butter and garlic.
The opening wine list champions English Sparking wine Ambriel, from West Sussex as well as London urban winery Renegade, based in Bethnal Green.
Lyon’s Seafood & Wine Bar opens October 11, at 1 Park Road, Crouch End, N8 8TE
