Case study

Menu creation for a growing bar group

Eastcheap Records - Live Music, Cocktails and Good Times
We were commissioned to create a full food offering for Rocket Leisure´s 4th live music venue in a new site on Eastcheap, London. This would be the groups first site to offer more than their signature pizza menu.

Following a briefing session, we dug in to the business to fully understand the current venues, history and the brand.

The food is rooted in the brand's American-Italian theme, with bold flavours in every bite and with interesting and fun twists. The menu consists of a mix of snacks, small plates and sharing platters - all developed to support and enhance the drinks and convivial bar atmosphere.

Once we had an approved menu, we drew up the equipment list and, working with a kitchen designer, we designed the optimal kitchen layout.

The recipe development work involved sourcing new suppliers and ingredients and delivering all the dishes fully costed, along with crockery suggestions and clear photographic training material.

Ahead of launch, we ran training sessions for the kitchen team which consisted of shoulder to shoulder cooking sessions in the new kitchen and soft opening support to ensure the team were fully able to execute the menu to the set standards.

Eastcheap Records is off to a great start and we wish the team all success with their growing group of high quality music venues!
