Sushi Shop x Gregory Marchand
Gregory Marchand (Michelin-starred Chef Patron of Frenchie Rue du Nil and Frenchie Covent Garden) has launched a collaborative menu with leading European sushi brand, Sushi Shop. The menu will be available at Sushi Shop sites worldwide, including London venues in Notting Hill, South Kensington, Marylebone, Hampstead and Richmond.
The menu of 5 dishes is inspired by flavours that fans of Frenchie will be familiar with, as inspiration for these dishes has been taken from Greg’s own menu at Frenchie Rue du Nil and FTG. For example, flavours of FTG’s infamous Fried Chicken with jalapenos and spiced honey are mirrored in the Frenchie Roll (£8.90 for 8 pieces), an uramaki roll filled with crispy fried chicken, avocado, smoked paprika and sesame, topped with fondant of sweet piquillo pepper and spicy mayonnaise.
Greg’s menu will take customers on a culinary tour of the globe – with dishes such as the Mediterranean Bowl (£16.50), a combination of grilled octopus, pickled cucumber, Kalamata olive puree, Greek yoghurt, green harissa, spring onion, sobacha and smoked salt, inspired by Greg’s octopus from Frenchie Rue du Nil. Another dish will be the Satay Sushi (£2.90 for 1 piece), an Indonesian-inspired take on a classic nigiri with prawn, peanut and coconut sauce, enhanced with the fresh flavours of lime zest and grated coconut.
Other dishes include the Indian Spring (£5.50 for 6 pieces), a vegetarian sushi roll that subtly blends roasted carrot, dates, cheese, Japanese mayonnaise, coriander, vadouvan and lime, and the Scandinavian Roll (£6.50 for 6 pieces), a refreshing mix of smoked herring, cucumber and sobacha crunch, topped with a sprinkling of aromatic herbs.
The collaboration comes in a series of guest chefs who have partnered with Sushi Shop. In 2018 saw Anne Sophie Pic create a range of stunning dishes, with Mauro Colagreco following suit in 2019.
