Nathan Outlaw has confirmed that he will be opening his latest restaurant in Port Isaac later this month.
With two established restaurants at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock, home to his eponymous 2 Michelin star restaurant, as well as another in London which opened just last year, Outlaw promises a different offering in Port Isaac.
The new venture, Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, will bring his expertise to a wider audience, offering small plates of seafood prepared and cooked in his distinctive style.
He said: “We wanted to do something different to our other offerings at the St Enodoc Hotel and the Capital Hotel in London.
“Our aim is to provide the same quality of produce and keep the simplicity of the food, but offer it to a wider audience in a much more informal, relaxed environment.
“We want it to be a place where you can just drop in and try as much or as little as you like, and relax with a bottle or glass of wine, or whichever special beer we have in that week. It’s a million miles from fine dining, but the standards of food are no different, and our commitment to looking after the customer will never waiver.”
The new restaurant is due to open at No 1 Middle Street, where Emily Scott and partner Jason Brain ran Harbour restaurant. The change in tenancy comes as Scott and Brain endeavour to expand their outside catering business, The Harbour Kitchen, as well as operating their new shop, The Harbour Kitchen Supply Store, which opened last month at the top of Port Isaac.
Paul Ripley (company development chef) will oversee the kitchen with James Lean (as head chef), who worked as the sous chef in Outlaw’s at Capital Hotel.
When asked about the sudden decision to open his new restaurant in Port Isaac, Outlaw said: “We have been working on the idea of Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen for over a year now and we’re extremely excited to have found a location that we feel is the perfect setting.”
