Ansel is known for the Cronut and other off-the-wall dessert ideas but, as you can see from the pictures and first menu below, the opening of 189 is showing a different side to Ansels cooking.

Queues for the bakery have already started, as you can see from the cronut craze video below, but it's the savoury dishes that are catching our eye.

Octopus Corn Dogs, Clam Chowder and 7 Hour Slow-Roasted Lamb Shoulder are just a few of the food listed on the menu which is rooted in French techniques, the restaurant say these will be applied across a range of flavours from different cultures.
