The people behind Kutir are opening a new Mediterranean / Asian grill restaurant on Beachamp Place

 From Amalfi to Asia… While it sounds like the tagline for a new series of The Trip, it’s actually the “culinary journey” promised by Geode, a new restaurant from Arrow Hospitality, whose portfolio also incudes Kutir and Manthan.

As that heritage suggests, Geode promises to be a slickly designed, stylish affair, a stripped back interior, softened by low mood-lighting, with dynamic furnishings and fixtures, not to mention a jagged hole on the backlit wall behind the bar, where diners will be invited to see through into the conservatory. Colour palettes across this three floored, 7,000 sq. ft townhouse range from coral and terracotta, to shades of olive-inspired green via shades of lavender and blue. Evenings will start in the cocktail bar before heading up to a split-level mezzanine featuring an elegant conservatory with an open-plan kitchen with robata grill, where Executive Head Chef Francesco Scala channels his years of Mediterranean influence and accomplished Japanese Chef Yuka Aoyama takes the lead in infusing Asian flavours into a variety of dishes using – where possible – local and seasonal ingredients.

Geode opens at 14-15 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1NQ from mid-September.
