The company is set to open a 22-cover Bonnie Gull Seafood Shed site at 22 Bateman Street, writes BigHospitality's sister publication MCA Insight.
Designed by Coriander Buildings, the British coastline-inspired restaurant will adopt a bar-style layout and serve small seafood plates, oysters, premium wine served by the glass and cocktails.
Founders Alex Hunter and Danny Clancy started the ‘seafood restaurant in the city’ concept with a popup in an old Hackney Pie ‘n Mash shop before launching its first permanent site Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack in Foley Street, Fitzrovia – in 2012.
The group closed its Exmouth Market site earlier this year.
Hunter said: “With our second Seafood Shack we are excited to be offering a Soho twist on our Fitzrovia original. Our commitment remains to serving only the freshest, sustainable British dayboat seafood in a relaxed, fun environment. Bonnie Gull Soho will offer a unique dining experience where customers can interact directly with chefs, learning where their food comes from and how it’s cooked."
The new site's menu will be overseen by the company's executive chef Christian Edwardson and will operate a no-reservations policy.
