64 Goodge Street | From the People Behind Portland
Let’s address Fitzrovia’s next extremely exciting new restaurant opening…
64 Goodge Street.
Yes, that will be the address – cracked that code – but for the restaurant itself, opening sometime this summer, the group and chef behind the operation make it a very intriguing prospect. Backing it are the Woodhead Restaurant Group, whose portfolio includes Portland (a Michelin-starred restaurant with a £95 tasting menu), Clipstone (Portland’s excellent sister restaurant in Fitzrovia), Quality Chophouse and Quality Wines, two of the best restaurants in Clerkenwell that do their names right and are also, as it happens, right next to each other.
An example of a Stuart Andrew dish…
There’s not a bad name on there – and as for 64 Goodge Street, they’ve pinched Clipstone’s and Portland’s Executive Head Chef Stuart Andrew to put together the menu. Andrew, like most people, loves French food (you can read a bit more about him here), and fell for the cuisine during his year and a half working in Paris. So alongside his experience working at high-end restaurants in London, he’ll no doubt be drawing upon his time there…
And as 64 Goodge Street will be a French bistro – one ‘that lacks pretension and puts the focus on excellent quality food within a relaxed setting’ – you can bank on wine being front and centre of the drinks side of the equation. The spotlight will be on Burgundy in particular, with the team promising that they’ve ‘scoured odd lists and old cellars’ to not only provide you with the best stuff, but also make a little easier on the old wallet too. Believe it or not there is such a thing as an affordable Burgundy, and they’re out to prove it.
Everything may just be at the announcement stage with 64 Goodge Street right now, but as far as announcements go, it’s a good start. Once the rest of the details come rolling in…
…we’ll be able to address those as well.
NOTE: 64 Goodge Street is expected to open sometime in the summer this year. They have a website and an Instagram for you to monitor, but for now you can always have a look at one of London’s other superb French restaurants. No harm in that…
