Brighton’s very own Coal Shed expands to London
This October, The Coal Shed will land at Berkeley Homes’ new landmark development ‘One Tower Bridge’. The opening of The Coal Shed in one of Central London’s most iconic locations marks the first London outing for restaurateur Razak Helalat, who has already won diners over with The Coal Shed’s original Brighton outlet and sister restaurant The Salt Room, which opened in Brighton in February 2015. The Coal Shed in Brighton has been named one of the best places to eat in the UK and is set to bring the restaurant’s approach to cooking the finest steak and seafood to its new branch.
Located opposite the iconic Tower of London, One Tower Bridge is a mixed-use development of high-specification apartments, commercial and cultural space. The Coal Shed joins restaurants like The Ivy Brasserie, Tom Simmons and Rosa’s Thai at the riverside destination, which is quickly becoming a new culinary hotspot in the capital. There will be a 900 seater theatre within the development and also welcomes The Lalit Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel with 70 beautifully designed rooms, each ornamented with bespoke Indian art…. Their first venture into the capital.
The Coal Shed at One Tower Bridge will continue to source seasonal, sustainable meat and seafood, including their range of 35-day, dry-aged Scottish steaks from the North Highlands that will be expertly cooked on hot coals. There will also be a specials board featuring some rare breed cuts and for seafoods fans a great selection of fresh fish and crustaceans from the South coast boats that deliver directly to the restaurant everyday… There will also be a range of small plates to encourage people to share dishes, which is what it is all about at The Coal Shed. Every Sunday, the restaurant will put on a full Sharing roast, complete with all the trimmings, perfect for the family or group gathering.
The team behind The Coal Shed & The Salt Rom in Brighton have helped to create the food and drinks menu. Executive Chef Dave Mothersill and Executive Pastry Chef Laura Petersen are the brains behind the restaurant’s food philosophy and menu while Head Bartender Matt Ottley has crafted an impressive drinks list, which includes a selection of innovative cocktails, wines and Champagnes.
Seating 124 people from 12-10pm, diners will be able to watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen in its relaxed, contemporary take on old-world glamour.
Razak will continue to play a hands-on role, even performing front of house duties and interacting with customers. Commenting on the opening at One Tower Bridge, he said: “Having enjoyed wonderful and humbling success in Brighton with both The Coal Shed and The Salt Room restaurants, we’re incredibly proud to bring The Coal Shed to One Tower Bridge. Since opening nearly six years ago, it feels like a natural progression to be opening to a new audience in London where we’ll remain fully committed to our love for quality ingredients, expertly cooked. It goes without saying that we’re more than excited about what’s in store.”
With The Coal Shed now joining One Tower Bridge’s family of London restaurants, this is the latest push for the brand as it aims to reinvigorate the capital’s offering and become a leading player in the London restaurant scene.
