Temper to open Great Eastern Street site

September 15, 2022

Temper, the Imbiba-backed, Sam Lee-led modern barbecue concept, will open its fourth site on Saturday, 1 October.

Propel revealed in January that Temper, which launched in 2017 and is operated under the Casper & Cole umbrella, had secured the former Jones Family Project site in Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, for its next opening.

Temper, which also operates sites in Soho, Angel and Seven Dials, sees chefs prepare food in front of guests.

The menu at Shoreditch, served from the basement restaurant, will see the addition of some new specially created “experimental plates” from chef director David Lagonell. These include a smoked brisket with spit-roasted clam, anchovy and beef fat mayonnaise taco; and whole duck carnitas with a mix of duck meat, offal and crispy skin with pickled kumquats and fresh chillies, served on a homemade paratha. Temper’s bottomless barbecue brunch and Sunday roast options will also be available.

On the first floor will be a cocktail bar serving bespoke drinks curated by general manager Janis Logins. The restaurant will have covers for 135, plus 60 at the bar.

Rob Meadows said: “We are seeing demand for fitted sites generally, but more specifically Shoreditch and Hoxton are seeing interest from dining operations as the market further evolves and matures.”
