Redman has already established himself in the culinary world with his 3 time Michelin bib Gourmand restaurant ‘Elliots’. He was also one of the first people to use organic, farm to table food, before it became a staple in restaurants.
Margaret, Texan born, has lived in Hackney for the past decade. She is mostly known for her fashion consultancy work, writing for people like Vogue, I-D, Love. However, she admits that she has always had a passion for food and even wanted to be a restaurant critic.
‘The Richmond’, which used to be ‘The Richmond Arms’ and more recently an Egyptian themed restaurant, has been re-designed by designer Adam Bray. He aims to achieve a warm, elegant and inviting atmosphere using contemporary features that complement the original building (modern colours, amber lighting, a marble topped bar).
Redman’s hope for ‘The Richmond’ is to provide East London a menu that will make any occasion special. It will provide snacks, comfort food and of course a fresh selection of raw seafood (oysters, clams, fish, scallops, mussels). On the weekends you can even expect to get yourself a full roast dinner.
They will also have what they are calling the ‘Oyster Happy Hour’, where oysters will be sold for a £1.
People can even stay after their meals for late night drinks.
Open: Mon-Fri 5pm – 12am, Sat 11am – 12am, Sun 11am-11pm.The Richmond, 361 Queensbridge Road, London, EB 3NH
