Will Beckett and Huw Gott, those clever chaps behind London’s favourite steakhouse, Hawksmoor, have been busy boys. Not content with three restaurants and the recent launch of their cookery book, Hawksmoor at Home (all proceeds generously donated to Action Against Hunger), they are adding a new venue to their growing empire. The new 60-cover bar below the newly-revamped restaurant in Spitalfields is due to open late February and will be once again designed by interior architects, Macaulay Sinclair. Though food is still is the “testing” stage (we did offer our services) we have been given a sneak preview of the menu: finger licking chicken wings and short ribs, fried oyster rolls, chilli cheese and onion rings. We particularly like the sound of the ‘Hawksmoor hot dog’. All washed down, of course, with their already-legendary cocktails.
