messageNew restaurant on Lordship Lane - "Saucy"
Posted by awesome3 August 31, 12:48PM

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to kindly introduce myself. My name is Jules, I am an Upland Rd resident of 14 years (I am a massive passionate fan of ED) and I am delighted to say I have just taken over the lease of the old Curry Cabin at 96 Lordship Lane! I wanted to write a wee post just to clarify a few things about what my plans are for the site as there seems to be some rather odd and indeed wildly untrue rumours knocking around about what we are going to be doing!

We're launching an independent, family positioned sit down/waiter service restaurant experience called "Saucy", not to be confused with my events catering business, Saucy Chip which focusses on brilliant loaded chips which we serve up and down the country at various festivals and events. At "Saucy" we will be offering a lovely relaxed, all day Brasserie style menu celebrating the Great British Classics but served very much with a modern, global twist and of course a variety of incredible homemade sauces to go with the dishes. We are delighted to announce our new Head Chef is Stuart Cauldwell who was most recently the Executive Head Chef of 'Roast' in Borough Market. There will be a range of small plates, mains, sides and delicious desserts on the menu. We will also be doing a great brunch menu at the weekend. Stuart and I are passionate about sourcing the best quality British ingredients and most importantly sourcing locally where possible from our beer to our cheese.

Please note the small upstairs area which was previously used incorrectly as a flat by previous tenants is planned to return to be part of the A3 restaurant licence and be an ancillary function room/ private event space to be used sporadically (if booked) as most of the function spaces are used for on the lane. Please note we have NO plans and never have had any plans to turn this space into a 'ticketed nightclub'! Our plan is for it to simply be a function/private space which won't be used or open to the public every day.

We are a traditional food led restaurant therefore our opening hours will be traditional restaurant opening hours (mirroring most other restaurants along the lane) not nightclub hours!

If anyone is still confused, please feel free to email me with any questions at Jules@saucychip.com. I'd be delighted to share our designs, plans in more detail.

Finally, as local residents we are really excited to be keeping the Lane independent and as parents with kids are looking forward to creating a great quality, family orientated restaurant serving delicious tasty food!

Thanks so much for your time.
Jules smiling smiley

I do sincerely hope you use the space as outlined here. Indeed there are many questionable rumours flying around from questionable people too. and with the planning application details seem to be very vague.
I do also hope you are intending to introduce yourself to neighbouring homes (not just the shops) to clarify such confusions and give people the chance to get to know you.

Good luck.

Hi There

Thanks for your comment. Yes your right, very questionable rumours hence me clarifying the situation as I am in good faith trying to launch a lovely family restaurant!

As I offered in my post I'd be delighted to meet up with the local neighbours and get to know everyone. I'll DM you to arrange but in the meantime please feel free to email at jules@saucychip.com

Many Thanks
Jules

Are you planning a Grand Opening Night..
Perhaps to introduce yourselves and meet your future customers..

I used the Curry Cabin for 46 years. Since 1972 ..

Don't think I will be able to squeeze in another 46 years. Lol.
… But will drop in sometime.

While we're asking for preferences.....if you're going to do breakfast, please cater for people who don't eat eggs (there are a lot of us..not allergic, so can eat in baking...just cannot stand them!...who would eat something that looks and feels like yellow and white snotbig grin.

As an aussie (where weekend breakfast cafe culture is pretty mature) it was a shock when I first arrived here (12 years ago) that for breakfast, usually my only two options for a hot breakfast on a cafe menu are the full english (with no egg please) or porridge....

Anyway, thats enough of a tangent. You're in a great location there, and best of luck with the opening. Sounds great.

Most place that do a full English will allow a swap of an egg with something else on the plate.
Anyway, Full English is done by so many on LL it's hardly going to be a USP for a new café and other offerings to broaden the overall choice on the Lane would be welcome, let's face it English version of breakfast or anything else is pretty grim most of the time. A non-life shortening breakfast menu would be welcome, you know, something that doesn't actively kill you with saturated fat and processed meat wonders !

Bloody Aussies... "mature cafe culture" indeed!! I'm pretty sure that even in the 2006 version of East Dulwich, there were at least a couple of places where you could get a reasonable coffee and a croissant/pastry or whatever. And any old greasy spoon could do you a bacon or sausage sandwich, beans on toast, etc.

Perhaps. But then, I'm not starting a business called fishbiscuits...

Imagine if you did though. What’d be the biscuit of choice?

Finally another egg hater! It's so frustrating to go anywhere for brunch and all you have is eggs this, that or the other. If you know of anywhere that has good options without having to take an egg off, I'm all ears!

messageRe: New restaurant on Lordship Lane - "Saucy"

It’s a dish with many ingredients, they can’t do 17 versions for every -ism.
Just leave the egg off bro and you’re there, same for those who won’t eat bacon, tomatoes, black pudding, etc.

Loads of places do brunch without eggs!

We operate in the shadowssmiling smiley

TO those people that say, just take the egg off...well that pretty much leaves us with a full english with no egg (as the only choice, and sometime you fdont fancy that...or scambled egg on toast with no egg..i.e. toast.

Fishbiscuits...yeah, fair point, the 'mature cafe culture' thing did sound knobby. I'll cop to that. lets just say there's more creative breakfast choices on offer typically in oz.

Crikey I can't believe I'm reading this.

Have you ventured into SE15 at all this decade?

Lots of very yummy brunch options without an egg to be seen.

Try Tupi, for a start!

But oh dear, there is an egg mentioned in three of the options, better not go there then big grin

ETA: Sorry OP, I shall deffo be trying out Saucy, with or without eggs big grin

Chillout Sue....it's nothing to get worked up abouut...we're just talking eggssmiling smiley

Im very pleased that there are an increasing number of cafes with more adventurous breakfast menus, and i often viit them, I think it's great to see that things are moving into a new post-egg world. I'm just saying that most cafes still have very egg heavy menus.....

Anyway....hopefully we've got to the yolk of the issue....
