Toklas

A Mediterranean-inspired restaurant - with an expansive garden terrace - from Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, founders of Frieze.

Sharp and Slotover founded the contemporary art and culture publication Frieze, and also the Frieze Art Fairs - considered to be some of the most important contemporary art fairs in the world. The brasserie-styled restaurant - with reclaimed parquet floor, reclaimed iroko counter and table tops - is housed in the brutalist building at 1 Surrey Street - which also houses the latest Soho House installment as well as the Frieze offices.

The main dining space features a large, sunny Wolfgang Tillmans photograph from 1993 of tomatoes and aubergines by a pool, and a wall in the bar area is covered with recent and vintage posters from significant art exhibitions from the last 50 years. There's also a expansive garden terrace. 

The menu as this art-centric restaurant focuses on a mainly fish and plant-focused menu focusing on Mediterranean flavours - many cooked on a large charcoal and wood grill by chef Martin Lyons (Spring, Moro).

 

Signature Dishes

Kingfish crudo with fennel and caper leaf; broccoli with farro, goat’s curd and black garlic; cuttlefish and chickpea stew; chicken with peppers and torn bread; and Halibut with girolles and coco beans.
