The ranks of growing City restaurant hub Broadgate Circle continue to swell with the addition of an NYC-inspired, all-day seafood spot. Crab Tavern, specialising in – you guessed it! – crab, opened at this newly emerging dining destination beside Liverpool Street station in July. The 150-cover restaurant features bar, terrace and counter dining.
Broadgate Circle already houses José Pizarro, Franco Manca, Yauatcha, Aubaine, The Botanist and many more.
As its name suggests Crab Tavern’s menu boasts an abundance of crustaceans with dishes like: Sweet & savoury King crab brioche doughnuts, west coast “bucket boil” – a steamy mix of crab claws, mussels, lobster, ratte potatoes, Merguez sausage and sweetcorn – oyster po boys and shrimp mac ‘n’ cheese.
Desserts sound suitably down-home American (despite the fact that this is a Russian-owned affair) with fruit pies; pecan, chilli & maple tart with lime tequila sorbet; baked cheesecake and a brownie stack.
Crab Tavern is the first London venue from restaurateur Igor Krayushkin, whose portfolio already boasts two restaurants and a nightclub in Russia, as well as La Residence restaurant in Dubai.
