Apart from both being noble-sounding creatures with possessive claims to features on a map, they wouldn’t appear to have much in common. Until, that is, the sixth branch in the rapidly fattening beef empire landed there in 2014.
Hawksmoor Knightsbridge has got all the low-lit vintage charm of the other beef temples in the Hawksmoor Group – leather seats, Art Deco lighting, etc. – but with a couple of little nods to the neighbourhood, including a large marble banquette cutting through the middle of the restaurant, and a caviar blackboard with the day’s roes scrawled onto it, which brings us neatly to:
THE THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT
In a word: seafood. But as opposed to the parochial charms of the Air Street branch‘s own fish menu, the swimmers here are all luxuriant, exotic, and Knightsbridgey. You’ll find the aforementioned caviar (with or without chilled vodka), Vietnamese-dressed oysters, and the real showstopper: a malted chocolate mousse with bitter chocolate sorbet and a cacao nib tuile. Which is not seafood, but is certainly different.

THE THINGS THAT ARE THE SAME
In a word: meat. Thank God. Hawksmoor Knightsbridge still serves all the classic cuts, from the sirloin and perpetually surprising d-rump, to the huge tomahawks, bone-in prime rib, and porterhouses. Of course, you can casually throw on half a lobster as a garnish, with some of their triple-cooked chips on the side, too, or swing by for their exceptional Sunday roast. And finally, there are,
Given that their cocktail list has been all-but perfected, it stands as no surprise that it’s the same list here. Shakey Pete’s Ginger Brew, the Hawksmoor Collins, the Nuclear Banana Daiquiri, they’re all here. Plus the craft beers. And a good ol’ cornflake milk milkshake – which, despite the fact that you can get them at all the Hawksmoors…
…is still quite rare.
