In reaction to customer feedback, the 200-cover restaurant, co-owned by New York chef Adam Perry Lang, will reopen today with a new 25-cover private dining room and an additional entrance at ground level opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral that will lead up to a new, third bar.
The restaurant, which opened in October last year, will also now feature a wall of rare whiskies, touted as including one of London’s largest collections of bourbons.
Jacques Dejardin, general manager at Barbecoa, said: “We’ve been very busy since opening but now is a good time to make some key improvements. Many of our customers have been asking about private dining so that’s something we’ve taken on board. The ground floor entrance will also be a huge benefit as our customers won’t have to weave their way through the shoppers to get to us.”
Barbecoa closed on 22 April for the refurbishment.
