Shelter Hall

New to Shelter Hall for the summer of 2022 is Patty Guy by Masterchef 2018 winner Kenny Tutt. Kenny creates a nostalgic Americana steak sandwich menu and reimagines it using high quality and sustainably sourced British beef. Patty Guy serves smash patties with unapologetically indulgent sandwiches, such as the Mac Daddy: two beef patties, double American cheese, fresh green chilli and pickled jalapeno. Sear by Salt Shed (Bethnal Green Boxpark) takes classic grilled dishes and recreates them using a robotayaki grill, a traditional Japanese style grill that uses hot coals rather than flame. They serve a 32 day aged Bavette steak with skin on chips, green sauce and pickled red onion.
