Michelin-starred Ellory Launches Sunday Specials of Comfort Food Classics

Michelin-starred Hackney restaurant Ellory has launched a new Sunday menu celebrating simple comfort food classics with a twist, all specially paired with wines from their list of exclusively European bottles.

Available as a special on Sundays only, head chef Sam Kamienko has recreated simple familiar home-style dishes, given a new meaning by using the same ethos as his Michelin-starred food.

Dishes include comforting steak and ale pie ‘n’ mash topped with a suet crust to Toulouse sausages served with aligot, an indulgent mashed potato mixed with half their weight in cheese.

The line-up will also include fish and chips served with lashings of tartare sauce, an intensely rich beef shin lasagne which takes three days to make, pork knuckle and sauerkraut and, to kick off the festive season, an Ellory Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, which will be available on December 17.

The restaurant will also celebrate its second birthday in style on November 26, turning fast food favourite fried chicken on its head, made using herb-fed Swaledale chicken, brined and floured with a special spice mix before being shallow-fried. All this will be paired with Grower Champagnes selected by Co-Owner and Sommelier Ed Thaw.

‘We like to do Sundays a little differently at Ellory,’ says co-owner Ed Thaw. ‘We’re taking simple classics but giving them as much care and attention as we do with the rest of our food so you can expect it to be the best comfort food you’ll ever have!’

Ellory Sundays is available every week as a special. The regular sharing menu is also available.
