Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group Announces International Expansion into London

Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group announced the expansion of its brand internationally. The company is honored to bring the classic steakhouse brand into London, opening early spring 2015, just off The Strand. The company is thrilled to share its unique dining experience with such a cosmopolitan and food-savvy city. The London restaurant will be located on the ground floor of the Adelphi building on John Adams Street. Featuring 300 seats in 15,000 square feet, the two floors will showcase two full dining bars, two main dining areas and several private event rooms. The scratch kitchen will outfit a full butcher shop and dry-aging room on-site, a signature feature of the Smith & Wollensky brand. Imported USDA Prime beef will undergo a distinct and traditional aging process, enhancing the primal cuts and ultimately delivering a perfectly balanced steak. The new restaurant will mirror the classic green and white Smith & Wollensky brand, offering a timeless, vibrant, yet relaxed atmosphere that envelops guests in gracious hospitality. It will feature many classic decor elements while integrating the unique style of the building, complementing the capital's rich history. It's a dining experience that offers simple refinement in the grand tradition. The restaurant will be open Monday through Sunday serving both lunch and dinner, featuring a traditional Smith & Wollensky menu of USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, premium seafood and wines. The menu will be complemented by local infusions and regional flavors. Design and construction are being led by London's acclaimed Martin Brudinzki Design Studio and Acacia Consulting.
