Islington’s Fishmonger Prawn on the Lawn ExpandsHALAL STATUS Seafood menu, with dishes containing alcohol clearly marked.
A fully licensed fishmonger and seafood bar has shut up shop and moved to a bigger location just a stone’s throw away down Islington’s Upper Street.
While Prawn on the Lawn’s new site retains its familiar shop front fish counter that continues to sell the freshest seafood, it now offers a hot food menu in its 35 cover ground floor restaurant, which also has a private dining room that can accommodate around 15.
With its menu regularly changing on account of the day’s catch that comes in from Cornwall, the place of their only other restaurant in Padstow, Prawn on the Lawn offers small plates for under a tenner that includes dishes like plaice tempura with curry sauce and crispy shallots and whole Cornish mackerel with ‘nduja and nasturtium, as well as larger sharing ones, such as, an £18 whole crab, or a £25 bowl of shellfish stew.
There’s even the option of choosing fish from the counter, before having it cooked with either classic, Thai or Chinese flavours.
Other dishes from the menu include:
- Brill steak, truffled lardo, onion
- Scallops, Thai marinade, Thai basil
- Hake, paprika butter beans, coriander
- Seared tuna, chili, spring onion, soy and mirin
- Octopus, cuttlefish ink cannellini beans, chermoula
NOTE: Although the dishes served at Prawn on the Lawn are seafood, some do contain alcohol. Be sure to double check before putting in your order.
