This collaboration between artist Damien Hirst and restaurateur Mark Hix is one of the most unique and inventive Brunches on the market.
A kitschy, themed restaurant found in Hirst’s newest gallery in Vauxhall backstreet, Brunch here is not a hard pill to swallow. It’s the rebooted 2.0 version of his first Pharmacy restaurant in Notting Hill.
Cabinets full of pills and medical tools are stacked high, a neon light states ‘prescriptions’ above the eye-popping bar, tables and chairs are a clinical white and Hirst’s artwork is stamped onto surfaces. If you like your Brunch with a side order of social commentary, you’ve come to the right place.
As the experimental lovechild of Hirst’s creativity and Hix’s culinary expertise, Pharmacy 2’s menu is as innovative as they come. Snack on Leigh-on-Sea cockle popcorn or heritage carrots with black garlic mayonnaise before moving onto some morning market noodles. Main courses include miso baked cod with pea shoot and ginger salad or a linguine vongole and be sure to fill up with their lovely sides (the purple sprouting broccoli is a favourite).
Their Sunday Roasts are similarly delicious – start with a creamed onion and Somerset cider soup before the main event. Pick roast sirloin of Glenarm Estate beef or barn-reared Indian Rock chicken with bread sauce, stuffing and all the trimmings.
