Hawksmoor opens huge space in New York

Hawksmoor has finally opened its New York restaurant after being delayed by the pandemic.

Situated in historic Gramercy Park gem the United Charities Building, which has been closed from public view for over a century, Hawksmoor New York has 146 covers in the grand dining room, a 35-cover bar and two private dining spaces for up to 12 people.

“Opening a restaurant in New York City has been a dream of ours for so many years, and it has been a genuine privilege to get to know the city, its restaurants and restaurateurs so well over the many years of working towards this opening,” Will Beckett said.

Huw Gott added: “We’re so excited to open our doors in New York City and to be a part of this incredible community of restaurants. Getting to know like-minded farmers and producers to partner with has been humbling and inspiring, and it’s a great joy to be able to return one of New York’s most beautiful and historic rooms back to the public realm”.

The menu is anchored by Hawksmoor classics alongside dishes that celebrate the best ingredients from America’s North East, and is overseen by the executive chef Matt Bernero, formerly head chef of Minetta Tavern.

Expect to see steelhead crudo with citrus, ginger and chili and ash-baked beets with pickled fennel, horseradish and hazelnuts to start; veal chop with fried oysters and tartar sauce and East Coast halibut with porcini and bone marrow sauce.

The United Charities Building has been sensitively restored and retains original elements such as the soaring 30-foot vaulted ceiling, elaborate crown moulding, stained glass, mosaic flooring, and wood panelling. The interior is classic Hawksmoor with reclaimed materials used throughout.
