Hawksmoor to open in New York

Premium steakhouse operator Hawksmoor has announced it will open a flagship restaurant in the World Trade Centre, New York at the end of 2017. The 14,000 sq.ft site will be the biggest restaurant from the group to date at the Richard Rogers-designed tower three. The New York restaurant menu will feature many of the brand’s trademark elements including the ‘dictionary thick’ beef and signature English dishes such as potted beef and bacon with Yorkshire pudding, beef dripping chips and clams and braised trotters. All meat will be sourced from American farms. Co-founder Will Beckett said: “We’ve been travelling to New York for over 10 years, finding inspiration on now to run our company and our restaurants, so the idea of being invited to open a restaurant in such an iconic location in the city is genuinely thrilling and humbling”.
