New grill house, West Thirty Six, will open in Golborne Road later this month – the same west London street that already houses John Doe, the charcoal grill spot glowingly reviewed by the Observer’s Jay Rayner on Sunday (4 Jan).
The three storey 100-cover restaurant with bar and cocktail lounge, on the former site of the Earl of Portobello pub, is owned by restaurateur Robert Newmark (Beach Blanket Babylon). Newmark has hired in Piers Walker (previously head of food and drink at The Mondrian London) and Jon Pollard (ex Soho House) has been picked to run the kitchen.
West Thirty Six will serve a traditional grill house menu ‘with a twist’, a selection of charcuterie and beef brisket sliders. Come summer there will be an al fresco dining terrace and barbecue area.
