Claude Bosi – who has earned two Michelin stars at his much-lauded Mayfair restaurant, Hibiscus – is set to open a new establishment in the capital with his brother Cedric. The pub, which is located on Vanston Place in Fulham, will be open for business in February 2013 after an extensive refurbishment. The brothers have already enjoyed great success with their other pub, the Fox and Grapes in Wimbledon since February 2011, and no doubt have another hit on their hands with this new drinking and dining venue.
The Malt House will serve contemporary British pub food with a focus on seasonal, fresh ingredients, with Marcus McGuiness, the former head chef at Hibiscus, taking the helm in the kitchen. The menu will change with the seasons according to market availability and will feature plenty of creative touches from McGuiness. Expect the likes of crab gratin with white Port and sea-buckthorn and pollock, pumpkin, winter savoury and red wine, plus traditional favourites like rib-eye steak and shoulder of lamb. And you can rest assured the surroundings will be as wonderful as the cuisine – London-based Alexander Waterworth Interiors has created an interior that retains the 18th-Century building’s original character, resulting in a venue where patrons can relax in style and comfort.
