Terry Laybourne opens new restaurant in Newcastle

Terry Laybourne launched his new butcher and grill bar in Newcastle's Fenwick department store yesterday.

Taking on the former site of his Pan Asian restaurant Ko Sai which opened in 2015, the Porterhouse Butcher and Grill is the latest venture for Laybourne and joins the portfolio in his 21 Hospitality Group.

The group consists of restaurant 21 in Pandon, Newcastle upon Tyne; Caffe Vivo and the Broad Chare pub on Newcastle's Quayside; and Café 21 and Saltwater Fish Company in the Fenwick department store.

It will be located next to the Saltwater Fish Company and share a kitchen area.

Seating will be available at the bar overlooking the kitchen for 14 guests, while 30 can dine in the restaurant space. Menu items include meat cuts such as rib eye steak and Chateaubriand.

The menu will serve meat cooked on a Josper grill in an open kitchen, which will allow diners to learn how to cook certain cuts of meat at home.

Meat for the butchery will be supplied by Peter Hannan of Hannan Meats, who has worked with Laybourne for several years, supplying meat to his restaurants.

"Our chefs will treat all these premium meats with respect," Laybourne said. "They will work hand in hand with our butcher, taking a ‘we cook what we sell, we sell what we cook' approach. Our meat and game is seasonal so both our butcher and dining menu will be constantly changing."
