Saltie Girl will join its Boston outpost in serving one of the largest tinned fish collections currently seen in a restaurant globally. The Boston restaurant currently offers 65 varieties of tinned fish at any one time, all served alongside French bread, butter, a trio of salts, and condiments.

Richard Turner – the renowned butcher, chef, restaurateur, and food writer – is consultant chef for the launch of Saltie Girl London. He has worked alongside Kathy to develop a menu that features Saltie Girl classics such as Clam chowder; New England lobster roll; Whole fried seabass; and Fried lobster and waffles as well as dishes developed specifically for London, including Turbot; Monkfish; and Dover sole.

Situated in a culinary hotspot on North Audley Street and designed by award-winning interior designers Atelier Wren, the London restaurant will have 100 covers split over two floors, in addition to three private dining rooms and additional seating outside.
