This autumn, everyone’s going to be talking about Geode, a brand-new eatery launching in Knightsbridge. It has all the ingredients to create a buzz: a stylish location (Beauchamp Place), a unique name (inspired by the crystal), and an exciting menu of Mediterranean-Asian fare, cooked over an open grill.
Geode: A New Restaurant Is Coming To Knightsbridge
Launching in September, Geode will be spread across 7,000 square foot of space over three floors in a Georgian townhouse. Led by Salvatore Broccu and Marios Louvaris (ex- Novikov Group), it promises theatrical dining: guests will arrive through a copper door, before arriving at a sleek cocktail bar featuring a geode design. Upstairs, you’ll find a split-level mezzanine with an open-plan kitchen, where diners can watch the chefs sizzling up dishes across a robata grill, rotisserie station and pizza oven.
Interiors come courtesy of Studio Sagrada along with Neha Beriwala, who have focused on creating a glamorous yet pared-back look. The ground floor will feature a striking coral and terracotta colour palette, while upstairs is more about lavenders and blues – a nod to the Mediterranean Sea at twilight. And in the dining room, shades of green will take over, inspired by the landscapes of the South of France.
Heading up the kitchen is Executive Head Chef Francesco Scala, alongside Japanese chef Yuka Aoyama, who will bring Asian influence to the menu. That means dishes like beef tartare and Cataplana (a Spanish-style fish stew) will be available alongside tai miso sea bream and King Crab gunkan.
Geode is said to be a restaurant where you can go from ‘dining to vibing’. Come evening time, the feel of the restaurant will change: the music will be kicked up a notch and a curtain will drop in front of the kitchen, creating a ‘vibey atmosphere’. Guests can continue to dine in the upper restaurant, or head to the bar and lounge area to party the night away with live music and DJs.
Cocktails will be a highlight here, with gem-inspired tipples like the Ruby Negroni made with strawberry infused mezcal and saffron vermouth; and a Topaz Martini featuring Grey Goose, fig liqueur and lavender syrup.
