Nanny Bill’s opened their hatch to a 1970’s Citroen HY truck for the first time in Spring 2015, feeding the food savvy patrons at East London food market Night Tales. Their signature croquettes caused quite a stir, the Mac’n’Cheese and Pea, Mint & Feta proved to be the most popular. The burgers and buns bring inspired flavours to our menu, with hand-pressed Cheeseburgers topped with bacon jam and Buttermilk fried chicken as firm favourites.
The Belli Freschi
The Belli Freschi brand was developed from Red Gallery and Last Days of Shoreditch’s long standing relationship with local family run Italian restaurant Bottega Prelibato on Rivington Street (next to Last Days of Shoreditch).
Last Days Of Shoreditch prefers to only work with locals so we approached our friends at this hidden Italian gem to deliver a new summer concept for one of our food stalls.
That’s how the avocado bar idea started.
Throughout the summer the avocado bar will see a regular menu updates, but let’s start with our favourite picks:-
Avocado Burger in a Crostini Bun – there will also be a fish option, Avocado Hot Dog with caramelised carrot and of course Avocado Chips and Avocado Tempura with variation of Italian herbs dips.
The concept is quite simple as avocado is light, healthy and tasty with an Italian cuisine swing this will be a 2017 summer food no brainer. Besides the low carb diet the project ethos includes an ethical organic producer that will supply avocados to the Belli Freschi kitchen at Last Days Of Shoreditch during the summer.
Mezzanine restaurant & terrace bar
Small Plates Sessions with Ben Spalding
Described as ‘high-energy, punk tapas in a fully immersive but relaxed environment’. Food will be available between 5pm-11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. It will be split between two areas:
A buzzing 50 cover restaurant expect innovative dishes like Gressingham Duck Breast cooked in a Chocolate Salt Crust, Chicken Skin Sandwich, Black Cod Ceviche with Iced Kaffir Lime, Hot & Cold San Marzano Tomato or the famous ‘Chicken on a Brick’. For dessert, try Lemongrass Vs Ginger or the outrageously moreish Cookie Dough Milkshake in a Shovel.
A relaxed no-reservation terrace and bar overlooking the festival, serving dishes cooked in a charcoal oven such as Barbecue Crack Rib for two, Cornish Monkfish roasted on the bone, Charred Lamb Minute Steak cooked rare with Crispy Garlic & Lemon Thyme and Silky Charcoal Holy F*ck Fudge drenched in Rum and set on fire.
Tickets for dinner in the restaurant will be available on this link at £28 each, which includes any four dishes from the evolving menu of delicious, inventive small plates on offer that day. If after those four dishes you want to try more, no problem; once you’re there, you can order as many additional individual dishes as you like. These will be priced between £4 – £12 per dish, with equal love and attention given to vegan, vegetarian & all dietary requirements.
