Easter Weekend
We would be grateful if all our corporate customers would place their orders early for this coming Easter weekend. Thank you!
Cooking With A Conscience
Due to the current environmental climate and the world-wide depletion of fish stocks, A SALT & BATTERY is switching to locally grown sustainable produce.
  • Cod fish stocks world-wide as well as locally have been over fished in recent years. The UK has already switched from Cod to Pollock (both the texture and taste are almost identical).
  • By switching from Cod to Pollock (which, unlike Cod, is a sustainable locally caught fish) we will more fully support our local economy,
  • With exception to those few imported items on our menu the utmost priority will be given to locally harvested produce e.g. potatoes from Long Island and fish caught by local day-boat fishermen.
We believe the advantages will far outweigh any disadvantages and we hope you, our respected customer, will agree with our decision.

We would love to hear what you think – send us your thoughts to info@asaltandbattery.com

An informed consumer is a more powerful one.
Thanks for your time.

Bobby Flay return visit!
Guess who popped in for lunch recently? None other than master chef and TV star Bobby Flay. Knowing how good our food is (after all we did win when we were on the show) Bobby and several colleagues dropped by to re-aquaint themselves with our delicious fish and chips. Nice one, Bobby!
Another Satisfied Customer!

Thanks to Bob Rio and Scott Wagmeister from Miami who sent us these photos during their visit to New York in September. It was great meeting you both and we hope to see you again soon.

Nice one!

 

 


We've been ambushed

American TV chef Bobby Flay has a new show on the Food Network called 'Throwdown'. His mission - to challenge the absolute masters in one kind of cooking. In each episode, one of these cooks thinks Food Network is shooting their profile for the show. What they don't know is that Bobby is going to drop in for a surprise visit and challenge them to an unexpected cook-off in front of a live audience. At the end of the cook-off they bring in two surprise judges who then decide the winner.

And guess who won? WE DID of course!

The chippy recently featured in Heston Blumenthal's culinary classic 'In Search of Perfection'. Blumenthal, owner of the Fat Duck, recently voted the world's best restaurant, says:

'Everything was gratifyingly familiar, everything triggered off fond memories [and] fryer Matt's attention to detail matched his surroundings. ...... 'He showed, once again, the lengths you have to go to achieve perfection'.
