Harden's says

On a Fitzrovia site that was Laboratorio Pizza – owner Ivan Simeoli has reformatted it as a second branch of his new seafood concept: cocktails, oysters, ceviche… and you can buy fish for your supper too.

Owner's description

A chic and stylish interior, evocative of the ocean. A fish & cocktail menu that fills you with anticipation.

Chef Ivan Simeoli, and venture partner Gerardo De Vito, are bringing a second branch of RAW to the hustle and bustle of Great Portland Street.

When you dine at RAW you will be treated to an evening of small plates of beautifully prepared fish, that go hand in hand with thirst quenching and unusual sea-themed cocktails.

Silky oysters, grilled octopus with borlotti beans, chorizo and ink crumble, light and crispy tempura tiger prawns and ultra fresh red prawns carpaccio are just some of the dishes coming from Ivan’s creative mind.

The atmosphere is a bubble of conviviality making every visit something to look forward to.

"Very fresh fish, well presented and delicious. Light and airy space. Short wine list, focussed on cocktails. (Too) few desserts."

"Some fantastic dishes - the monkfish with peas and miso a particular highlight and everything generally at a good standard. Visted in soft launch period so service not quite at 100% yet, and post soft launch I might have some questions over portion size and value on some of the dishes."

"Pleasant but not brilliant food. It has just opened so was empty - not sure what the ambience would be like if full. Decor looks cheaply done and the outside doesn’t look particularly welcoming"
