Blacklock has announced it is set to open its fourth restaurant in February 2022 in the heart of Covent Garden’s theatreland.
It revealed it has been over three years since the group last launched a new restaurant, with its flagship on Soho’s Great Windmill Street in 2015, followed by their City and Shoreditch restaurants in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
The restaurant, which will be the largest Blacklock yet, will make its home beneath Bedford Street in a building that used to house the King’s Coachmakers, seating 110 covers.
According to the restaurant, the owner Gordon Ker and team have kept their “absolute commitment” to sustainability, with their new site seeing lesser known cuts of meat joining the menu for the first time, including Denver and Tri-tip steaks.
Blacklock has also said sustainable wine will be on tap and served by the litre, with the menu keeping waste at an all time low.
Covent Garden will use sustainably-reared meat from long-term partner, farmer and butcher, Philip Warren, who manages and cares for Blacklock’s herd in Cornwall, with a focus on regenerative farming.
Ker said: ”It’s been a rough two years for everybody and so, over 3 years since we last opened a Blacklock, we are bubbling over with excitement to be looking forward, growing again and opening our fourth restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden.
“In particular, creating fantastic new opportunities for our brilliant and loyal teams as well as introducing never-before-seen dishes to the menu for our guests. We cannot wait to open and become part of the local area, home to so many other fantastic restaurants, theatres and history.”
