Ugly Butterfly Adam Handling King's Road

Ugly Butterfly to open on the King’s Road

The latest arrival on the King’s Road will enable you to indulge and do your bit for the planet at the same time. This November, Adam Handling will open Ugly Butterfly; a sustainable casual restaurant and sustainability conversation hub at 55 King’s Road.

Making zero-waste luxurious, Ugly Butterfly will make chicken feet and banana peel glamorous as the dishes are created from ingredients usually thrown out. The collaboration between award-winning chef Adam Handling, Cadogan, Quintessentially Foundation and The Felix Project will open on 13 November.

Open for walk-in diners from lunch until late evenings from Wednesday to Sunday, enjoy a delicious menu of snacks and small plates alongside a Champagne list (by the glass) from the region’s top wine makers. All dishes will be made from the parts of ingredients that are usually discarded, most of which coming from Adam Handling Chelsea, with an emphasis on the four most wasted foods; bread, milk, eggs and bananas. Adam has created some daring dishes which he hopes will inspire you to think more carefully before you throw away your leftovers; deboned crispy fried chicken feet with caviar; Adam Handling’s iconic cheese doughnuts made with leftovers from the cheeseboard; banana bread and chicken butter; lobster shell soup; broccoli stalk Ceasar salad, retired dairy cow tartare and crispy potato peelings and reformed doughnuts (made from leftover bread) and overripe fruit jam.

As well as a great place to eat and drink, it is set to become a hub for business and community sustainability hub with pioneers in sustainable food and drink, restaurants, fashion, technology, and art and craft, holding free conversations and experiences for drop-in diners twice a week on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 7pm.

Mary Quant Plaque

Ahead of being honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award, a plaque celebrating Dame Mary Quant was unveiled at 138A King’s Road on 16 September; the original site of her ground-breaking boutique Bazaar, which embodied a new generation’s attitude to life and fashion, bringing energy and fun to shopping.

Mary Quant revolutionised fashion, harnessing youth, street style and mass production to create a new look for women, defining the Swinging Sixties. Challenging conventions, she popularised tights, hot pants, the mini skirt and trousers. The plaque unveiling coincides with London Fashion Week, Dame Mary’s ‘Lifetime Achievement’ at the World Fashion Awards and a major international retrospective exploring her influential career at the V&A museum, just a short walk from the King’s Road, which brings to life how she injected positivity and colour back to a post-war London. The bonanza of an exhibition traces Quant’s career from 1955 to 1975, exploring the evolution of her style, and how her clever marketing created a global lifestyle brand. The show runs until 16 February 2020.
