The new site, the first new opening in 8 years from the popular establishment, opens to the public on 21st November and will offer the same, distinctive style of the flagship bar and restaurant.
‘SMITHS’ Cannon Street has been carefully designed to offer something for everyone, depending on mood, budget and time. As much a destination for business breakfasts for the many local blue chip and FTSE companies as for post-work drinks, private celebrations and intimate dinners.
‘SMITHS’ priority is to deliver simple food made from the finest ingredients, served in a friendly way in a relaxed atmosphere. The majority of produce for Cannon Street, in conjunction with the existing Farringdon site, will be sourced locally and all the meat is ethically produced from some of the UK’s top farmers. All our meat is butchered in house by our head chef.
The Cannon Street kitchen will be headed up by ‘SMITHS’ veteran Henry Omereye and the menu will offer robust, but sophisticated food, with a number of playful interpretations on classic dishes. Highlights include: Grilled Halibut with Lobster Mash, Spinach and Parsley Sauce, Black Pudding, Crispy Bacon and Cauliflower Purée, Henry’s Cornfed Chicken, Chicken Liver Roll, Sweetcorn and Leeks and ‘SMITHS’ signature range of rare breed steaks from award-winning suppliers.
The food will be complemented by a comprehensive and carefully chosen wine list by one of the world’s masters of wine, David Gleave, who ensures each wine is sustainably produced and full of character. The bar will also feature a selected range of craft beers from local and international brewers.
Cat Stuijt, Sales and Marking Manager at ‘SMITHS’ of Smithfield, commented: “We are incredibly excited about this new venture, in the heart of the city in an area which is crying out for sophisticated dining and drinking in a sea of grab-and-go outlets. The new restaurant has been specifically designed to adapt to both the needs of the local business community looking for a smart but informal setting and members of the public looking for a great food and drink experience.”
‘SMITHS’ of Smithfield, Cannon Street, has been designed by award winning architects The Manser Practice and opens to the public on 21st November 2016.
