Chef Jesse Dunford Wood opens his latest neighbourhood venture Harvest in Kensal Rise next month.

The restaurateur already runs the area's popular Parlour pub and dining room, along with Six Portland Road in Holland Park.

He says the new all day dining restaurant - taking over the site of curry house Bawarchi in Chamberlayne Road - will be a hybrid between the two, serving modern British food from coffee and brunch, to lunch and informal suppers.

Harvest opens its doors on May 4 with 35 seats inside and another 35 in a 'secret' garden out the back.

Opening at 8am with coffee, brunch starts at 9am and includes roast Isle of Wight tomatoes on toast, kedgeree with crispy egg and curry sauce, smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels, and 'The Green Man Breakfast Crumpet' of broccoli, courgettes and spinach with green eggs.

The colourful, seasonal changing menu will foreground contemporary plant based dishes, British coastal fish, and direct from farm meat.

Lunch and dinner include the likes of roasted scallops, Tamworth pork schnitzel, asparagus and butter lettuce salad, and duck liver profiteroles, alongside sharing dishes such as large whole sea bass and short horn sirloin.Ham & High: Brunch at Harvest will include tomatoes on toastBrunch at Harvest will include tomatoes on toast (Image: Courtesy of Jesse Dunford Wood)

The menu will evolve throughout the week and will be accompanied by a wine-led drinks offer with refined cocktails and plenty of choice of non-alcoholic drinks. 

A handful of street tables will be available for al fresco coffee and brunch, while interiors designed by Ben Masterton-Smith from Transit Studio (Groucho Club, Royal Academy Cafe, EartH Kitchen) will focus on natural colours, plenty of wood, and a lived-in comfortable atmosphere. As with Parlour, wrought iron wall art designed by Dunford Wood’s artist father Hugh will adorn the walls.

Dunford Wood trained with the likes of Rowley Leigh and Michael Caines before opening the National Dining Rooms with Oliver Peyton and then relaunching The Mall Tavern. He opened his first solo venture Parlour in 2012, which has become hugely popular with North West Londoners.

Harvest opens on May 4 at 68 Chamberlayne Road, NW10.
