Located in an old electricity substation in the basement of a Grade II listed building on Eastcheap, the second Blacklock will be larger than the Soho original with space for 100 covers as well as a bar area with additional space. It will take reservations, including for dinner for the first time.
In a change to the original, the city sibling will serve starters alongside a selection of new cuts. Dishes will include beef rib-eye; aged rump cap; maple bacon chop; and smoked and roasted chicken for two served with Yorkshire pancakes.
The restaurant will also feature a separate bar serving cocktails for under a fiver as well as wines on tap.
Blacklock was founded Gordon Ker in 2015 when it opened on the site of a former brothel on Soho’s Great Windmill Street and has won praise for its chops cooked over charcoal as well as it generous Sunday roasts.
The restaurant was deemed to serve the Best Sunday Lunch in the annual Observer Food Monthly Awards last year.
