Black Roe Poke Bar & Grill is set to launch in the heart of Mayfair on 29th March, bringing with it the finest Pacific Rim cuisine.
Backed by Kurt Zdesar, owner of the successful Chotto Matte in Soho, the intimate 60-seat restaurant will feature moody grey walls and distressed luxury touches, such as worn wood and leather.
Black Roe’s crowning glory will be a Poke bar at the entrance of the restaurant, where an expert chef will serve up raw fish with a Pacific slant, alongside other fresh seafood and oysters.
Cocktails and a wide selection of wines by the glass, including The Chateau Leoube, La Londe Rose an exclusive to the UK, will also be served at the relaxed bar.
Downstairs will feature a large chef’s table for up to 20 guests – leading into the centre of the open kitchen – and is lined by tanks filled with the freshest live seafood. When not booked for private events, the communal table becomes a relaxed first come, first served walk in table.
Black Roe Poke Bar & Grill will take its produce very seriously, working closely with farmers and fishermen whose portraits hang on the walls.
