Near and dear to my heart, a little over a year ago I brought the best that Red Rooster Harlem has to offer across the pond to Red Rooster Shoreditch and I couldn’t be happier. Come to The Curtain Hotel to find us and experience all the Rooster favorites like Chicken and Waffles, Cornbread, Deviled eggs, and Mac’ and cheese, and even gospel brunch and live music! It’s always a party at Red Rooster!

Believe it or not, New York is not the only city with incredible bagels. Spelled “beigel” in London, Beigel Bake is a traditional Jewish bakery open 24 hour a day / 7 days a week and specializing in kosher baked goods with fillings like herring and salt beef, completed with mustard. Get ready to stand in line!
