Continuing to redefine high-end Indian cuisine, Indian Accent in Mayfair announces that it is now open for lunch and dinner on Sundays and with its extended opening hours comes an exciting new weekend brunch menu with not an avocado insight.
Chef Manish Mehrotra puts his unique spin on brunch with expertly spiced, imaginative plates that take inspiration from traditional regional dishes.
Following in the footsteps of the wildly successful brunch menu at its sister restaurant in NYC, relaxed Indian-style brunch dishes feature the likes of Parsi fried eggs with crispy potatoes and chutney; chilli crab cheese toast with summer cucumber pickle and tamarind ketchup; and quail egg pulao with bacon, crispy shallots and mint yoghurt. Set to be a sure fire favourite is the chicken chilli dabba gosht with baked eggs– a quirky, Indian-inspired take on shakshuka, served with paratha.
Fusing Indian ingredients with traditional British breakfast staples is the selection of kulchas – mildly leavened flat bread, naan-style, with a choice of delicious fillings including smoked bacon, black pudding or wild mushrooms.
Brunch dishes are individually priced with any two courses available at £25 or opt for the ‘shared brunch’ for the table – a sumptuous spread featuring nine signature savoury and sweet dishes for £40 per person.
Like eggs and bacon, cocktails are the perfect brunch partner and, at Indian Accent, the innovative brunch cocktails include choices such as Ceylon Bellini or Spiced Tomato Martini. Zero proof cocktails defy expectations with creative concoctions like the Sticky Wicket, spiced pomegranate or the Mudra Punch – a blend of rose sharbat, almond mill and coconut orgeat.
In addition to cocktails, there’s a wide range of rare whiskies and, for those who prefer grape to grain, the wine list is both extensive and interesting having been curated by Group Beverage Director, Daniel Beedle whose New York list has been named amongst the 100 Best in America by Wine Enthusiast for the last two years.
Indian Accent has won much critical acclaim since opening just a few months ago and with the arrival of brunch alongside a whole host of new menus – including the arrival of the Summer menus earlier this month, a 45-minute £19 business lunch and a two course pre-theatre at £28 – Indian Accent is firmly establishing itself as a restaurant for all occasions.
