Shoreditch’s apothecary history inspires M by Montcalm’s restaurant.

by Laura on March 23, 2015


M by Montcalm will soon open in Shoreditch’s Tech City. But as the hotel looks to the future with a host of technical features, its restaurant is harking back to the past. Using Shoreditch’s apothecary history as inspiration, Tonic & Remedy is gearing up to serve modern dishes with a healthy twist.

The new venture from Great British Menu chef Paul Welburn and Benedictine ambassador Jeremy Pascal, has a menu that encourages diners to share.

Welburn said of the menu: “It’s not a fine dining menu, just a refined menu, we want people to enjoy and feel good from eating at Tonic and Remedy.” Some of the dishes bring back ingredients that were used as remedies and cures in the past. You’ll find Herbal Salad with an Avocado, Pomegranate & Parsley Wine Dressing, and Smoked Eel & Mackerel, Jelly & Seaweed Scones.

Jeremy Pascal is in charge of the drinks side of things, and has created a range of cocktails using herbal liquors.

When the restaurant opens in mid-April 2015, you’ll be able to sample Apothecary, with rosemary and homemade peach butterscotch jam; as well as Patience & Thyme, made with gin, thyme and smoked egg for a sour flavour.

The restaurant will open across the ground and mezzanine floors of the hotel, while the Sky Bar and Restaurant takes the upper levels. Each of the freshly made dishes will be made using produce from small suppliers, including Lake District Farmers and The Bread Factory. The hotel opens on April 14th, so we can expect to see Tonic & Remedy around the same time.
