A southern America-inspired fried chicken restaurant called Moral Fox has opened in west London after running a pop-up kitchen at the Globe nightclub on the same premises.

The 30-cover restaurant has been opened by Robie Uniacke over the Caribbean-themed nightclub on Talbot Road, Notting Hill. The nightclub is also now operated by Uniacke but will be run as a separate entity.

Uniacke told M&C Report that from the street the restaurant will not be visible to give diners the feeling they have “discovered” something unknown. He said: “The idea is that nothing is there and you could just walk past it without knowing it’s there.”

He said: “I look at it as a standalone restaurant. The space is very unique and we want to keep it like that.”

Although Uniacke does not previously have a background in he has taken on board Laura Gallacher, previously of Soho House Group who launched the Electric Diner.

The restaurant will serve free-range chicken plain fried, spicy or in a sandwich. Side dishes include triple cooked fries, creamy coleslaw, corn on the cob and sweet potato mash. There will also be weekly and “surprise” specials.

Moral chicken is open for dinner only at present but brunch will be added in the future and Uniacke said delivery may be added to the take-away service in the future.
