Restaurant group Hawksmoor has announced plans to open a restaurant within New York's World Trade Center. 

The restaurant, which will be Hawksmoor's first outside the UK, will occupy a 14,000 sqft space in the Richard Rogers-designed Tower 3 and will aim to open at the end of 2017. 

Co-owner Will Beckett, whose restaurant group currently has six sites in London and one in Manchester, said Hawksmoor New York would serve many of the same dishes on its UK menu, but with careful sourcing from American farms. 

He said: “We’ve been travelling to New York for over 10 years, finding inspiration on how to run our company and our restaurants, so the idea of being invited to open a restaurant in such an iconic location in the city is genuinely thrilling and humbling. It is also the biggest challenge we’ve ever had, but we hope that if we can bring our passion for sourcing, standards, ethics and hospitality to the restaurant we can become a long-lasting part of New York’s amazing restaurant scene.” 

Co-owner Huw Gott said while the move was a 'big deal' for Hawksmoor which he founded in 2006, it could also be seen as recognition of London's exciting restaurant scene. 

"I think the two cities are now on a par in terms of quality, variety and excitement, and I can’t wait to start work on trying to create a great restaurant there, although we’ll never lose sight of the fact that our London & Manchester restaurants are always our main focus," he said.
