The 110-cover site on Belvedere Road has received a refurbishment created by Dover Designs – which also designed South Kensington’s Café Boubier and Farringdon’s Benito’s Hat ‒ and features horseshoe booths, a wide ‘kitchen theatre’, long bar, and a heated terrace.
The menu includes dishes such as Scottish smoked salmon; potted shrimps; roasted Cornish salmon fillet on a tartare potato cake; tartlet of asparagus with ceps and dolcelatte cheese; ‘Westminster pides’ with a range of toppings such as seafood, minced lamb and ratatouille, marinated chicken, or shitake mushroom with cheese.
There is also a wide range of charcoal grills of English meats, burgers, and sustainably-sourced fish, plus traditional British desserts such as bread and butter pudding, and rhubarb and apple crumble with hot custard.
Founder Dogus is also the owner of Mediterranean café-restaurant Troia in nearby Waterloo.
He said: “I’m incredibly excited to be opening my next London restaurant in such an exciting, central part of the city. Westminster Kitchen offers something that the area is lacking: a warm, welcoming venue, with a great vibe, that delivers both the modern and traditional London.”
