Dishes will include dressed Dorset crab with spicy lemongrass and massago gratin, warm aromatic crisp; roast duck and lychee herb salad; and Australian Waygu hanger steak with Thai black peppercorn sauce. Also available will be European dishes and dishes from the wok.
The restaurant manager will be Michael Cheung.
Spread over two floors, Brompton Asian Brasserie will include a bright and airy ground floor restaurant with open kitchen as well as a downstairs cocktail bar and dining room.
Next to the restaurant will be the Grocer by Novikov, which will comprise a takeaway menu as well as a dim sum counter and a shop.
