Wong Kar

1st March 2022

Madina Kazhimova and Anna Dolgushina, who operate the Asian restaurant Wong Kar Wine in St Petersburg Russia, expect to make their UK restaurant debut this spring.

The pair are set to open Firebird in Poland Street in Soho, which used to house Mexican restaurant Corazon before it closed last year. Firebird will feature dishes cooked over a fire such as roasted duck breast with plum chutney and burnt plums, and rump steak with burnt onions, smoked bone marrow and sorrel herb salad.

Dolgushina will also be designing a cocktail list with flamed garnishes, including a toasted white sesame sour.
