Nathan Outlaw to Open in Port Isaac

Posted on 7th August 2013 by ewwwebdev There have been 0 comments


Nathan Outlaw has announced plans to open a new restaurant “Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen” in the heart of Port Isaac later this month. With two popular restaurants at the St. Enodoc Hotel in Rock, home to his eponymous 2 Michelin star restaurant, as well as another in London which opened just last year, Outlaw promises a different offering within Port Isaac.  The new venture brings Outlaw’s expertise to a wider audience, offering small plates of seafood prepared and cooked in his unique style.

Outlaw said, “We wanted to do something different to our other offerings at the St. Enodoc Hotel in Rock and The Capital Hotel in London. Our aim is to provide the same quality of produce and keep the simplicity of the food, but offer it to a wider audience in a much more informal, relaxed environment. It’s the kind of place I love to eat out at, where you can just have a good selection of what’s on the menu and enjoy different flavours, textures and experience new ingredients at your liberty. We want it to be a place where you can just drop in and try as much or as little as you like, and relax with a bottle or glass of wine, or whichever special beer we have in that week. It’s a million miles from fine dining, but the standards of food are no different, and our commitment to looking after the customer will never waiver.”

The restaurant is due to open at No. 1 Middle Street, where much-celebrated chef Emily Scott and partner Jason Brain have delighted customers for the past five years as proprietors of the Harbour restaurant. The change in tenancy comes as Emily and Jason endeavour to expand their already thriving outside catering business “The Harbour Kitchen”, as well as operating their new shop, “The Harbour Kitchen Supply Store,” which opened last month at the top of Port Isaac.  They decided to sell the restaurant several months ago, with many new projects on the horizon and fresh challenges ahead. There is no doubt that Emily’s graceful cooking, for which so many admire her, will for a long time to come be associated with the picturesque and historic building of No. 1 Middle Street. “I’ve known Emily and Jason for the last four years, and they’ve done an amazing job building up a real loyal following in Port Isaac and across Cornwall. I only hope we can live up to their reputation within the beautiful walls of the restaurant.” said Outlaw.

If Port Isaac was not already firmly on the map as a foodie destination, it most certainly will be now. Emily’s new venture at The Harbour Kitchen Supply Store at 18 New Road, Port Isaac, is a deli, coffee shop, wine bar and event venue, and has received a great response in a short space of time. Coupled with Port Isaac’s long-standing supply of wonderful lobster and crab, which both Nathan and Emily agree is the very best available, and the unveiling of Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen later this month, there is no doubt that Port Isaac is soon to become a mecca for all food enthusiasts across the UK.

So what of the offering at Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen? Outlaw explains, “Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen is all about small plates of great seafood, simply prepared and designed for sharing.  They will be cooked to order and served when ready.” Paul Ripley (Company Development Chef) will oversee the kitchen with James Lean (as Head Chef), who worked as the Sous Chef in Outlaw’s at Capital Hotel, London. Outlaw talked of what it was like to have good friend and experienced chef Paul Ripley on board, “I’ve worked for, and with Paul, on and off for the past 15 years. He was one of my main inspirations as a young chef while learning to prepare and cook fish at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, where Paul was Head Chef for 10 years. I later worked for him when he opened his first restaurant “Ripley’s,” which earned 1 Michelin star, before setting off on my own path. We are both alike in our love for simply cooked seafood and it’s great to have his wealth of knowledge available with such an exciting new project ahead.”

When asked about the sudden decision to open his new restaurant in Port Isaac, Outlaw said, “We have been working on the idea of Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen for over a year now and we’re extremely excited to have found a location that we feel is the perfect setting. Port Isaac has such a great seaside feel to it, with an active fishing community at the heart of the village.  The team just can’t wait to get cooking.” Nor can we...! With the combined culinary force of Nathan Outlaw and Paul Ripley, it seems the North coast of Cornwall is set for yet another gastronomic treat.
