Opens Spring 2015
Galadari will bring smart dining to the City this spring with a penthouse-inspired restaurant, bar and rooftop terrace – complete with show-stopping views of St Paul’s, No. 1 Blackfriars, The Shard and Tate Modern. Perched on the eighth floor of Crowne Plaza London – The City, guests will slip in via a discreet private entrance before being whizzed up to the top floor; there they’ll find a luxuriously designed space inspired by a plush private apartment and furnished with rich leathers and bespoke art. A Japanese kushiyaki grill takes centre stage on a menu of modern tapas together with barbecued meats, steaks and seafood. Signature blends, meanwhile, will sit alongside shochu highballs and a collection of Japanese fine whiskies, sake, house-made sodas and a range of Champagne vintages.

S&WSmith & Wollensky
Opens Spring 2015
From the Big Apple to the Big Smoke, boutique American steakhouse Smith & Wollensky will open their first site on the Strand this spring. To be housed inside the historic Adelphi Building on John Adams Street, the stylish steakhouse will serve up their famed USDA Prime beef alongside British and Irish cuts – all of which will undergo a distinct and traditional ageing process on-site – as well as their signature seafood and wine. Spread across two floors, the interiors – comprising two dining bars, two main dining areas and several private event rooms – will be courtesy of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Think a classic green and white colour palette, rich hard woods and antique lighting for a traditional but timeless affair. The knives will be out for a table.
