This Summer, Trafalgar Square will gain a new resident, when The Strand Dining Rooms open as part of the redevelopment of 1-3 Grand Buildings, and I am happy to say that I will be documenting the journey from the extensive re-design of the restaurant, all the way up to the grand opening in June.

This post is the first part of the time lapse sequence with more to follow, so watch this space!

The Strand Dining Rooms

The all day dining restaurant will offer a modern European menu, set against a quintessentially British backdrop.  The 180 cover restaurant, launched by Mark Harris, promises to become a classic dining destination in the heart of the capital.  Founder of Harris Restaurant Consultants, Mark has previously held positions at renowned restaurants, including The Capital Hotel, Simon Parker Bowles’ Green’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, and Searcy’s at The Gherkin.  He is now offering his own vision for the London restaurant scene with The Strand Dining Rooms.

Here are some images from the first tasting session, where head chef Michael Beugnet treated us to some of his wonderful creations.

Address: 1-3 Strand, Grand Buildings, London, WC2N ‎
