Headed up by ex-Dean Street Townhouse chef Jason Loy, the 50-cover restaurant serves lunch and dinner on weekdays, dinner on Saturdays and a ‘Sunday feast’ on the last day of the week.
The wood-panelled room in which Lutyens Grill is situated was once used as the building’s former bank manager’s office and was initially chosen to be a private restaurant for club members because of its look and feel.
The restaurant’s Interior design is influenced by 1920’s gentleman’s clubs, and features a restored parquet floor and chesterfields reupholstered in a custom silk from Gainsborough.
Food in the restaurant includes starters such as Dorset crab raviolio with shellfish bisque; hay smoked venison carpaccio with horseradish; and langoustine cocktail with avocado and pickled fennel. There is also a selection of salads.
A grill selection has two sharing options: a 36-day aged Hereford T-bone at £90; and a 40-day aged Hereford Tomahawk at £84. Individual grill dishes include rare breed 38 day aged fillet; Gloucester 38 day aged sirloin; Shorthorn 40 day aged rib-eye; and a pork cutlet.
The Ned is a hotel, club and restaurant project launched by Soho House and New York-based Sydell Group.
The 252-bedroom hotel in the former Midland Bank building in the City of London includes nine restaurants and a private members’ club, and opened in spring of this year, run by a team separate to Soho House and Sydell Group.
