x upper islington

A sausage revolution is set to sweep the streets of Islington in the new year, with the launch of X-Upper on Upper Street, 1st March.

X-Upper is a brand-new concept centred around one of the most beloved products: The sausage. X-Upper will serve Europe’s finest gourmet sausages, curated by top-rated chefs into memorable recipes.

The new restaurant, which is at 88 Upper Street, will initially seat 40 with plans to seat a further 40 people upstairs and 20 on the outside terrace later in 2019. The restaurant will also cater to grab-and-go consumers.

The intrepid X-Upper team walked 152km across 14 cities in Europe and trialled 513 sausages in their quest to find the best and highest quality sausages. The team further sourced top London-rated chefs to create a signature recipe for each selected sausage on the menu. Visiting guests can look forward to enjoying a range of succulent sausages, sourced from the best artisanal butchers. The menu includes six core sausages including the Olma Bratwurst, a protected Swiss bratwurst which is served with a signature purple mustard, pickled cabbage, and milk and honey sourdough. The result is simply stunning: forget what you know about sausages!

In addition to the six core sausages, there will be daily rotating specials including delights such as the much-loved Austrian Käsekrainer and a smoky Polish Kielbasa. The sausages will be priced between £8 and £12 and diners can expect to spend around £8 to £15 per head.

To celebrate the arrival of X-Upper, the restaurant will be offering free sausages to the first 500 customers through the doors when they open ahead of opening fully to the public on 1st march.

Address: 88 Upper Street, London, N1 0NP
Opening hours: Monday – Sunday 11.00 – 23.00
