Hawksmoor Brings Steak to Smithfields

July 19, 2013

Leisure specialist DCL has agreed a letting with Will Beckett and Huw Gott, the pair behind the Hawksmoor – one of London’s most popular steak and seafood restaurant brands – to open a fifth site. The pair have taken the 3,200 sq ft former North Road Restaurant on St John Street to open a new smaller format eatery called Foxlow.

The new 100-cover restaurant will follow in the steps of its sister brand with a strong focus on serving the finest and freshest ingredients from around the UK. It will be smaller and more intimate than the Hawksmoor format but will retain the relaxed atmosphere serving excellent food accompanied by fantastic cocktails and wines.

Rob Meadows of DCL commented: “The Hawksmoor is an incredibly successful restaurant brand and for the team to be opening a new smaller more intimate format is extremely exciting. Smithfield is well established for its bars, nightclubs and restaurants – not to mention its history as London’s historic meat market – and the Foxlow is the perfect addition to the area. Details of the new restaurant are still emerging but by continuing to focus on serving the best-quality meat and seafood available we have no doubt that it will be a success.”

Hawksmoor currently operates four restaurants in London.
