Named after the magnificent breed of South Devonshire cow from which the delicious steaks are sourced, Orange Elephants are the largest of the native British cattle, with their nickname deriving from their wide faces, big ears and rust coloured coats. Orange Elephant’s signature steak is carefully sourced from independent British farms, and created from specially selected cuts of quality beef which has been aged for a minimum of 32 days. The casual dining concept will honour the art of the simple steak, adding a finesse and flare certain to tantalise the taste buds.
Orange Elephant is the brainchild of Head Chef Jai Parkinson, whose penchant for the perfect dining experience has become second nature, following his time working with some of the world’s leading chefs over his 18-year career, including Michelin-starred David Burke (who opened La Pont de la Tour amongst others) and Julien Maisonneuve (who headed up Tom Aitkens restaurant).
Jai and his team will be using the innovative Big Green Egg barbeques to cook their steaks in order to prepare only the most succulent and delicious meat. The Green Eggs have a clever ceramic design which uses charcoal fuel and is capable of generating an intense controlled heat, essential to properly searing the meat, while roasting and smoking at the same time. Steaks are cooked exactly how they should be with beautiful cross hatch marks, crisp charred edges and the all-important juicy flavour.
Whether guests are looking for a quick, delicious lunch or for long dinners catching up with friends and family, Orange Elephantcan cater for all. Interiors are comfortable, with a natural edge and warm lighting to create an elegant atmosphere. A combination of exposed brickwork, wood floors, pewter table tops and bronze accents will frame the theatre kitchen with Jai and team on full display.
Perfect for the indecisive, Orange Elephant is a ‘one choice’ themed steakhouse that offers diners steak and chips for £20 per person. Fulham doesn’t exactly set London alight as far as dining goes but Orange Elephant looks to buck that trend. Those with larger appetites, fear not, there’s plenty more to be had – including an American export – The Tomahawk (food challenge levels of steak).
