Lobster Bar to launch in Hackney

The duo behind modern tapas restaurants Ivy's and Little Ivy's in London are to open a new seafood bar in Hackney.

Restaurateur Christina Lahaniati and chef Cristine Leone will launch Lobster Bar on 19 August on Richmond Road. It will line up alongside local eateries, such as Lardo and Rawduck, and will capture the growing trend in the capital for seafood bars, such as Burger & Lobster and Randall & Aubin.

The breakfast-to-dinner menu at the 55-seat bar will offer sustainable seafood with a focus on lobster served in a number of ways. These include sweet lobster rolls, lobster benedict, lobster spaghetti and the classic buttery grilled lobster with accompaniments.

Greek-born Lahaniati and Brazilian Leone have drawn inspiration for the menu from around the world. As well as native oysters with cucumber and ginger pickle, seafood platters, fish cakes, croquette bites and truffle fries, it will offer non-fish dishes, such as Butler's steak chimichurri. Starters are priced from £3.50, mains from £7.50 and desserts from £4.50.

The restaurant will have a clean, pared-back design, with parquet floors, marble-topped tables and huge industrial glass windows. Lahaniati and Leone founded Ivy's Mess Hall in Dalston in 2013, followed by Little Ivy's in Clapton in 2014.
