The Coal Shed Brighton to relocate in spring
The Coal Shed in Brighton, the steak restaurant concept from Razak Helalat and the Black Rock Restaurants Group, has announced plans to relocate to a larger venue in spring.
Moving to a 142-cover site on Brighton's North Street, the venue will continue to champion the art of cooking over flames, with coal-roasted rare breed heritage meat and south coast seafood taking centre stage in a refreshed and expanded à la carte menu. The brand's signature steaks and sharing cuts will be available, alongside dishes from the sea and land and daily-changing specials.
The Coal Shed's current Boyce Street home will continue to serve the community with its flame-grilled food and hospitality up until the move.
Having first launched in 2011, the transition will see Helalat kick-start a new chapter for the brand, evident in the new site's larger capacity and elevated design. The space will boast a grand main dining room, located in a historical orangery with high glass ceilings, as well as three private dining spaces that cater for up to 60 guests.
An open-fire kitchen will put the coal-grilling theatrics at the heart of the guest experience, with an ageing room for meats and a bar area situated on entry to the restaurant. A feature Helalat has long desired for The Coal Shed, the bar area will comprise a stretch of banquet seating, dotted with round bar tables and a crescent-shaped bar lined with bar stools.
On the relocation, Helalat says: "We've always envisioned moving The Coal Shed into a bigger location and now, as we edge closer to our 13th year at Boyce's Street, it feels like the right time. The move is all about offering customers the full dining experience that I have always dreamed of, with the new site allowing for a bar area, a more intimate experience with your host and more seating. Needless to say, we'll continue serving our favourite dishes with the same warm hospitality to customers right up until the move in spring, but are really excited about this new era for The Coal Shed."
