The Strand's grandest hotel is going on a seafood diet this spring.
The Savoy has recently closed the doors at its much-loved River Restaurant, but fear not - chef James Pare, responsible for that restaurant's classic menu, will continue to oversee operations at the hotel's new dining room.
Kaspar's Seafood Bar and Grill promises to offer some of London's finest seafood in an informal setting (well, as informal as The Savoy can be) with a central fish bar, banquette seating and a semi-private Captain's Table seating 12 people.
The restaurant is name after Kaspar, the 3ft high wooden cat and '14th guest', created to alleviate the bad luck groups of 13 might otherwise experience when congregating at The Savoy.
As you might expect, the Seafood Bar and Grill's menu will include oysters a lobster club sandwich and a smoked fish platter - all cooked to the Savoy's immaculate standards. Kaspar's opens on May 2nd - in the meantime guests and foodies alike can still eat at the Savoy Grill or Simpson's-in-the-Strand (pictured above), a Dickensian, high-ceilinged restaurant whose Grand Divan dining room has served roast beef from metal trays since approximately the dawn of recorded time.
