Hawksmoor is famous for serving only the best sustainable and humanely reared meats, with a big emphasis on provenance (just ask the name of the butcher or farmer your piece of cow came from). Owners, Will Beckett and Huw Gott, and their chef, Richard Turner, are now hoping to replicate this approach in the States in a beautiful National Historic Landmark built as The United Charities Building in 1893 with an incredible 30-foot vaulted ceiling. The interior is classic Hawksmoor with reclaimed materials used throughout, brass accents, emerald leather booths and antique finds including vintage books and artworks.
The menu is anchored by Hawksmoor classics alongside dishes that celebrate the best ingredients from America’s North East, and is overseen by Executive Chef Matt Bernero, formerly Head Chef of Minetta Tavern. Expect carefully-sourced, sustainable beef - everything from a T-bone, to bone-in prime rib. Similarly, the cocktail list offers a selection of UK favourites alongside drinks that celebrate New York and use local ingredients.
Steelhead Crudo with citrus, ginger and chilli; ash-baked beets with pickled fennel, horseradish and hazelnuts to start; veal chop with fried oysters and tartar sauce and East Coast Halibut with porcini and bone marrow sauce.
Nine Inch Nail made with Brooklyn’s Kings County Single Malt; Apple Martini made with Porchester’s Neversink apple eau-de-vie and a take on the Cosmopolitan with Beefeater 24, triple sec, Crème de Framboise & Lillet Blanc.
