Opening in the heart of Mayfair at the iconic Brown’s hotel on Monday 16th April, the restaurant, freshly redesigned by Olga Polizzi, will offer a brand-new casual dining menu of classic Italian dishes, reinvented using the finest seasonal British ingredients.

Beck at Brown’s comes to Mayfair on the heels of Beck’s hugely successful takeover of the space last December as part of the hotel’s celebration of Italian conviviality where he took up residence alongside drinks maestro Salvatore Calabrese.

With a focus on a light, healthy menu featuring the highest quality produce, each dish has been crafted by Heinz to create a hearty Italian menu perfect for a swift lunch, formal dinner or private party. Beck at Brown’s brings dishes from throughout Italy, showcasing the diversity in cooking techniques throughout the country, from the hearty meat and fish dishes found in the mountainous north to the fresh citrusy flavours in the sun-drenched south.

What’s on the menu

Insalate & Antipasti:
• Burrata di Andria with marinated courgette
• Dressed crab with grilled Romain lettuce & wild herbs
• Roasted veal sweetbreads with fava beans, peas & artichokes

Primi & Zuppe:

• Taglioni all’astice with smoked aubergine cream & chilli
• Spaghetti cacio e pepe with lime-marinated langoustine

Pesce & Carne:
• Red mullet ‘sandwich’ with black olive & tarragon
• Grilled black cod with ‘Nduja crust, red peppers & cucumber

Heinz Beck commented: “I’m excited to return to London after my residency last year and bring with me some of my favourite dishes and, of course, some new creations using the best of British produce.  It’s an honour to have my own kitchen in such an illustrious hotel, with a new modern dining room that reflects the colours of Italy and the heritage of Italian cooking.”
