Monsieur Le Duck is a new pop-up restaurant that brings the food and wine of South-West France to the heart of London. Inspired by the douceur de vivre of Gascony, it offers a simple but alluring menu, focusing on duck, chips, salad and wine.
Fronted by Londoner Richard Humphreys, a frequent traveler to Gascony, Monsieur Le Duck provides a portal to a land of relaxed eating and drinking; a concept synonymous with South-West France. Hugely passionate about the simple, rich and delicious food of this part of France, Richard gave up his previous career in the City to follow his dream of introducing his distinct take on this cuisine to London.
Located in a beautiful glass-fronted premises between Liverpool Street Station and Spitalfields Market, the 55 cover, 6-month pop-up restaurant will be managed by George Ryan, previously at Village East, Railhouse Café and Burger & Lobster.
Unique to London, Monsieur Le Duck will offer a small menu centred on duck cooked three ways: a choice of Confit Duck Leg, Duck Magret Breast or Duck Burger served with chips and a mixed leaf salad. Those looking for the full duck experience can choose Le Grand Jeu sharing plate, while vegetarians can enjoy a seasonal French vegetable tart. Typical regional sides with a modern twist and French classic desserts, such as crème brûlée complete the menu, which will be available throughout the day, 7 days per week.
Monsieur le Duck is at 4 Brushfield St, London E1 6AN
