It will be the first foray into the capital for restaurateur Raz Helatat, six years after he launched the original Coal Shed – described by this year’s Harden’s Survey as “a great place for steak-lovers”. His team’s equally successful Brighton follow-up, fish and seafood specialist the Salt Room, opened in 2015.
Highlights of the menu at the new Coal Shed will be a range of 35-day dry-aged steaks from northern Highlands beef cooked over hot coals, along with daily-fresh fish from the south coast and sharing roasts on Sundays. Helatat plans to work among the front of house staff.
Welsh chef Tom Simmons and the Ivy Café have already been named among the food and drink venues at One Tower Bridge, a mixed residential development by Berkeley Homes that will also have a 900-seat theatre. The Coal Shed is currently scheduled to open in October.
