Foxlow to open in Soho

A new Foxlow restaurant is due to open in London's Soho in spring this year, having taken over the ground floor and basement of a former office building on Lower James Street.

The new 120-cover restaurant will open in May.

It will bring the brand back up to four sites, including its restaurants in Clerkenwell, Balham and Chiswick, after it closed Foxlow in Stoke Newington in January this year.

Each restaurant has an individual look and feel, rooted to its location and owners Will Beckett and Huw Gott hope to take the same approach with the latest opening.

The ground floor will be dominated by a large U-shaped bar with counter seating and an illuminated canopy inspired by the cinemas of the 1960s and 70s.

A mix of seating will include large communal tables, plush booths and window seats.

Downstairs, the 40-cover space will feature an open copper-clad kitchen pass, booth seating, reclaimed tiling and reclaimed pendant lights.

Dishes will include sow-smoked pork ribs, five pepper Brixham squid, fried Castlemead chicken and steaks sourced from small British farms.

Foxlow's development chef Lewis Hannaford will also be creating new dishes, using the seasonal British ingredients, including a couple of new vegan options: spice roasted cauliflower with chickpeas & spinach and warm lentils with sweet potato and tahini.

In addition to lunch and dinner, Foxlow Soho will open daily for brunch, with roasts served on Sunday. There will also be an expanded cocktail list developed by Foxlow's bar team will feature new additions such as Greenpoint (rye, vermouth, yellow chartreuse) and Shaquiri (Manzanilla, lime, Peychaud's bitters).

Beckett and Gott founded Hawksmoor in 2006 and have since grown it to six sites, with five in London and one in Manchester.

In October last year, Hawksmoor announced that it would open its seventh site, this time in London's Borough Market. The 140-cover venue, spread over two floors, will open in February 2017 at 16 Winchester Walk.
