This week will see new restaurant, Beast take up residency on the streets of Mayfair. Brought to you by the Goodman Restaurant Group, the people behind the Burger & Lobster restaurants, Beast is championing the partnership of Angus beef and Norwegian Red King Crab.
The first of its kind in London, there is a strong emphasis on shared experiences, so much so that they will be serving a single set menu (at least there will be no food envy) which includes starters, sides, desserts and main courses of both beef and crab -which comes from the Norway King Crab company in Bugøynes a small town on the Northern Norwegian/Russian border. Everyone will sit at long, communal tables, so if you're after an intimate atmosphere for a date you might want to think again, this is the sort of place you want to take a bunch of your best friends for a raucous night – well, with a name like Beast!
Continuing with the Norwegian theme the interior is Nordic- gothic luxury meets medieval banqueting meets Hogwart’s Great Hall. Look out for the live crab tank, the visible meat fridge and the striking bar which features an extensive wine list alongside a more stripped back and simple spirit list.
After the success of Burger and Lobster – we expect great things from Beast!
