Alsatian-inspired restaurant coming to Fitzrovia
Opening in early spring, July will be a new, Alsation-inspired restaurant and wine bar offering nourishing comfort food and low-intervention wines, based on Charlotte Street in London's Fitzrovia.
Open all day, the venue will serve breakfast pastries and coffee in the morning, along with a concise lunchtime offer and an evening menu of bar snacks, small plates, charcuterie and cheese.
The kitchen will be headed up by Holly Hayes, former sous chef of 40 Maltby Street. Featuring a regularly changing menu, guests can expect generous sandwiches and homemade stews for lunch, and a range of seasonal small and large plates for dinner. Saturday lunches will include the signature dish of whole roast Fosse Meadows chicken and homemade mayonnaise, designed to be shared family-style, as a nod to traditional French weekend lunches.
On the wine front, the list has been created in partnership with sommelier Honey Spencer and will showcase low-intervention wines from small producers in Europe.
July is the brainchild of food writer Solynka Dumas and co-founder Julian Oschmann, who met during lockdown while living in the same apartment block in Berlin. After meeting one morning, the pair bonded over their shared love for hospitality and began hosting clandestine dinners for friends. As the concept evolved, they sought to bring their shared passion to life with July – a neighbourhood restaurant offering seasonal, ingredient-led dining in the heart of Fitzrovia.
