Apr 13, 2017 by     No Comments    Posted under: News

She’s the star of The Only Way is Essex, and now Megan McKenna will be turning her talents to tantalising your tastebuds as she launches her very own restaurant.

Serving the very best of British, Megan has enlisted the crème de la crème of the restaurant world to create a very Essexy menu. To set this restaurant apart from the rest, many will be delighted to hear that 90% of the menu will be gluten free.

This is the latest exciting venture for the singer and reality TV darling who has already wowed her fans with her own clothing range with online fashion giants Miss Pap and sell out Mouthy by Megan lipkits. Now her latest project will provide a venue perfect for the day and night, a great spot for the ultimate girls night out or equally as good for a cosy date night.

Megan McKenna takes a bite out of the restaurant business by launching her own restaurant which is set to be ‘striking with a modern twist’. MCK Grill restaurant and cocktail bar will be opening next month in Woodford Green, Essex. The restaurant and bar will be as glam as its owner Megan, who has herself overseen all of the interior design which will have a plush, opulent Mayfair feel to it. This exciting new restaurant will serve high end seasonal British cuisine in cool, calm, modern surroundings.

Head Chef Gavin Gordon, previously Head Chef of Bonniegul honed his culinary skills working under the guidance of renowned Michelin star chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Tony Fleming and Matteo Vigotti. For this new venture, Gavin has created an exciting contemporary menu based on the food that he loves to cook and Megan loves to eat. As it is well known that Megan is a coeliac, she has worked with the team to ensure that nearly all of the items on the menu are gluten free but most importantly has made certain that the taste has not been compromised in any way.

You can expect to see dishes such as hand dived scallops with smoked bacon dashi, Jersey royals and preserved lemon, Colchester dressed crab with pickled cucumber, red pepper and toasted sourdough and Crispy confit pork belly with burnt apple mayonnaise. In addition there will be a charcoal grill menu with the finest cuts of pasture fed 28 day aged beef from the Dedham Vale Estate.

Megan said “I can’t wait for the opening of my first restaurant, I’ve been working on this for a while now and am excited to finally be able to share the news. Everybody knows how much I love to eat and so the tasting sessions have been my favourite part of this process. The mainly gluten free menu is so delicious, the MCK Burger, the lobster and the chocolate sphere desert are my favourite items on the menu and the MCK Pornstar drink too. I’m sure there will be a lot of TOWIE parties held in MCK but it’s also going to be a good date night place too. If you want that Mayfair feel then MCK is going to be the place to be, the decor is going to be really glam based on some of my favourite Mayfair spots and there will be chilled house music playing whilst you eat to give off a really cool vibe.”

Everyone is welcome at MCK Grill. It is the perfect setting for a quick work lunch, intimate dinner, celebration or large group party, whatever the occasion, your time at MCK will be memorable. No two nights will be the same, some nights there will be live music playing, the weekends will have a really upbeat feel with lots of varied entertainment and others nights will be more relaxed with house music playing.
