Remember the cronut? Well, now the man behind that world-famous foodie fad is opening up a new restaurant in London… and it’s not a bakery.
Dominique Ansel Treehouse will be a cafe-bistro in Covent Garden, serving innovative pastries (they are his specialities) but on a more savoury level. With a menu divided into three courses, there will be freshly baked bread, vol au vents, pithiviers, handmade pasta, gnocchi, short-crust pies and pâté à choux. For those of you hoping those famous cronuts will make an appearance, it’s a firm no from Dominique… soz.
If the name is not a giveaway, the space will have a botanical theme, perhaps influenced by its home on Floral Street. Featuring a bread and baked goods counter downstairs (still not a bakery), the restaurant is up a flight of stairs and nestled within a ‘treetop canopy’.
