Michelin-starred chef Heinz Beck will be returning to London this April with his highly anticipated new restaurant, Beck at Brown’s
Opening in the heart of Mayfair on Monday 16th April at the iconic Brown’s hotel, the restaurant, freshly redesigned by Olga Polizzi, will offer a brand-new casual dining menu of classic Italian dishes.
The selection has been reinvented using the finest seasonal British ingredients, uniting Heinz’s inimitable style with the hotel’s British heritage and careful balance of classic elegance and contemporary flair.
Beck at Brown’s comes to Mayfair on the heels of Beck’s hugely successful takeover of the space last December as part of the hotel’s celebration of Italian conviviality where he took up residence alongside drinks maestro Salvatore Calabrese.
With a focus on a light, healthy menu featuring the highest quality produce, with Norfolk chicken and lamb from the organic Rhug estate. Each dish is crafted by Heinz to create a hearty Italian menu perfect for a swift lunch, formal dinner or private party.
Beck at Brown’s brings dishes from throughout Italy, showcasing the diversity in cooking techniques throughout the country, from the hearty meat and fish dishes found in the mountainous north to the fresh citrusy flavours in the sun-drenched south.
What’s on the menu:
• Burrata di Andria with marinated courgette
• Dressed crab with grilled Romain lettuce & wild herbs
• Roasted veal sweetbreads with fava beans, peas & artichokes
• Risotto with aged parmesan, artichokes & olive oil
• Taglioni all’astice with smoked aubergine cream & chilli
• Spaghetti cacio e pepe with lime-marinated langoustine
• Red mullet ‘sandwich’ with black olive & tarragon
• Grilled black cod with ‘Nduja crust, red peppers & cucumber
• Aged Rhug estate striploin with truffle mash & rosemary sauce (to share)
• Tiramisu affogato
• Tarta al cioccolato
• Sorrento lemon cheesecake
Guests looking for an even more relaxed experience can also indulge in Heinz’s exclusive Aperitivo creations, bringing the Italian capital’s ever-popular ‘happy hour’ concept to Mayfair, with dishes including Crostini burro e alici and Carciofi alla Giudia.
Heinz Beck commented, “I’m excited to return to London after my residency last year and bring with me some of my favourite dishes and, of course, some new creations using the best of British produce.
It’s an honour to have my own kitchen in such an illustrious hotel, with a new modern dining room that reflects the colours of Italy and the heritage of Italian cooking.”
Now with its own separate entrance on Mayfair’s Albermarle Street, the space itself has undergone a complete redesign, headed up by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels’ director of design.
Whilst maintaining the historic architectural details such as the original 1900’s oak panelling, the restaurant has been transformed into a bright, botanical utopia. Expect a colour palette of greens and turquoises with brass accents and a curated selection from Brown’s significant art and antiques collection.
