The SE1 dining scene is totally on fire right now. Hard on the heels of Kolae and Akara opening comes news of another upcoming restaurant that’ll cement Borough’s reputation for hot new openings. Camille is the place in question and the team behind it are Clare Lattin and Tom Hill, founders of Ducksoup and Little Duck. The pair have also scored when it comes to their head chef, ex-St John chef Elliot Hashtroudi, who’s currently cooking up a storm at his residency at 107 in Clapton (formerly P Franco).
Camille will be an Entente Cordiale of a restaurant. Think French bistro with a wine list focusing on small French producers and dishes using the best of British produce, much of which will be sourced from across the road in the market.
“My cooking is inspired by provincial French cuisine,” says Elliot, “but using what’s right on our doorstep.” On the menu that translates to dishes like tete de veau schnitzel with dandelion, cep stuffed chicken wing and a fennel and brown butter custard tart.
The restaurant has taken over the old Sons + Daughters sandwich shop site and will have room for 40 diners, with more out on the terrace when the weather gets a little warmer.
