Freak Scene mark III coming to Parson’s Green
January 6, 2023 HardensBytes
Ace Aussie chef Scott Hallsworth is reviving his raved-about Freak Scene pan-Asian restaurant once again – this time off Parson’s Green in Fulham. The new venture follows his Double Dragon pop-up, which ran for several months last year in Clerkenwell and also generated much enthusiasm.
Freak Scene itself started out as a pop-up in Farringdon, and was followed by mark II in Soho, which earned an impressive 5-4-4 score in the 2020 Harden’s guide with food described as “delicious” and “surprising in a totally good way“.
The Soho venue closed down during the pandemic and Scott has kept the Freak Scene brand alive until now as a caterer, but he recently announced on social media that mark III is to open at 28 Parson’s Green Lane – the former site of Quadra square pizzeria.
An ex-Nobu head chef, Scott founded the highly rated “rock’n’roll izakaya” Kurobuta in London 10 years ago, leaving in 2017 to launch the original Freak Scene.
