Covent Garden’s restaurant chops are on the up

Celebrated London steakhouse and Sunday roast specialist Blacklock is planning to open a fourth restaurant in the city. Gordon Ker’s group will open on Covent Garden’s Henrietta Street, according to Big Hospitality, with a recently submitted planning application to refurbish a townhouse for restaurant use at 3 Henrietta Street a possible final destination. Restaurants on Eastcheap and in Shoreditch have replicated the success of the Soho original, predicated on a close relationship with Cornish butcher Warren’s and a concise, precisely executed menu of chops, steaks, and sides. It’ll have healthy competition: London’s sine qua non of extra restaurant openings, Big Mamma, is planning a huge site on the same street. [Big Hospitality]
