Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw to open Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac in Cornwall
With two popular restaurants at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock, including his eponymous two Michelin star restaurant, as well as another in London which opened last year, Outlaw promises a different offering within the popular fishing village.
Outlaw said that the Kitchen would be “a million miles from fine dining”Rather than fine dining, with a focus on small plates of seafood prepared and cooked in Outlaw’s style.
“We wanted to do something different to our other offerings at the St. Enodoc Hotel in Rock and The Capital Hotel in London,” he said.
“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.
“It’s the kind of place I love to eat out at, where you can just have a good selection of what’s on the menu and enjoy different flavours, textures and experience new ingredients at your liberty.
“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.”
Long-term Outlaw associate Paul Ripley will oversee the kitchen, with James Lean, who worked as the sous chef in his London restaurant, as head chef.
Emily Scott is not taking a step back from the kitchen, but is instead looking to take her business in a different direction. She hopes to build up her outside catering business.
And she has already launched another business in the Cornish fishing village.
The Harbour Kitchen Supply Store at 18 New Road, Port Isaac, is a deli, coffee shop, wine bar and event venue, selling freshly baked breaks and cakes, larder ingredients, charcuterie, cheeses and wine.
“We understand that as well as enjoying eating out in fantastic restaurants like Nathan’s, people also love to be around their own kitchen tables,” she said,
“it’s something that we love too! We will be hosting ‘pop-up’ events, including wine tastings and cooking demos.
“Lots of fresh and exciting projects are on the horizon, as we expand beyond the beautiful but bowing walls of No.1 Middle Street.”
