Antillean Launches Pan-Caribbean Brunch

Antillean has announced that it’s launching a new Brunch Menu, available every Saturday to help kick-start guests’ weekends. Chef Patron Michael Hanbury’s three-course set menu welcomes diners to his restaurant inspired by the idyllic islands of the Antilles on London’s Blackfriars Road, with a bright new menu of refreshingly delicious dishes sure to kick-start the weekend.

The Pan-Caribbean menu reflects the heritage and vibrant multi-cultural influences of the Antilles.

The menu starts with a choice of sharing platters, including Mackerel Escovitch and Julienne Pickled Vegetables and Watermelon & Heritage Beetroot Salad.

Individual main courses are a variety of signature seafood, meat, vegetarian and plant-based recipes, including Ribeye Steak with Mojo Dressing and Yuca Fries and Grilled Aubergine with stir-fried Ackee.
Chef’s indulgent desserts feature a sharing selection of sweet treats such as Carrot Cake with Pineapple and Guinness Punch Ice-Cream.

For hungrier guests, supplement delicacies include Grilled Octopus with Mango, Cucumber, Mint and a Scotch Bonnet Emulsion and a selection of Ceviche such as Mojito Cured Grouper with Mint, Lime and Rum.

Antillean’s white coastal chic with its sleek interiors and high ceilings offer a cool welcome for guests seeking brunch in a clean and bright space in London’s SE1 postcode. And brunch here is about more than just the imaginative food. The restaurant hosts a resident DJ on the decks, and on select weekends, he is joined by the Caribbean jazz vibes of a live saxophonist, while a percussionist will also join in April.

After a welcome cocktail, keep the drinks flowing, with the bar serving an extensive selection of over 100 distinctive types of rum from around the world. Alternatively, choose another colourful cocktail from the exciting list, specially created to complement the dazzling dishes flying out of the kitchen.

Antillean sits proudly in a stunning listed 18th-century coaching house just minutes from Southwark and Waterloo stations.
