Paul Michaels, the owner of Hexagon, one of the “finest” classic car dealers in Europe, has announced the opening of a new restaurant concept, The Engine Rooms, in London.
The venue will serve Mediterranean-inspired dishes, whilst also using the “best of seasonal British ingredients”. Some 80% of the menu will be made up of UK ingredients but the team has said it is “committed to sourcing and serving the best quality European produce”.
James Harrison, formerly of Taka Marylebone, has been appointed as head chef, launching a menu with a “specific focus” on fish and vegetables.
The establishment comprises both an indoor and outdoor space, alongside a mezzanine dining level and a heated courtyard area with electric canopy roof.
During the daytime there will be a coffee bar which transitions into a wine bar with bar snacks in the evening.
The Engine Rooms, which is located in Hexagon, will also feature racing car memorabilia, and a modern art collection overseen by Michaels’ late wife.
