Restaurant group grows collection with Fitzrovia dining room

London-based Affinity Bars & Restaurants is opening its fourth restaurant at the top of Newman Street in Fitzrovia in late February, replacing the former Newman Street Tavern.

The Dickie Fitz all-day dining room will be open Monday to Sunday. Executive chef of the group, Matt Robinson, will be creating a full menu from breakfast through to dinner with dishes inspired by the flavours and ingredients of the Pacific.

Drinks and small plates as well as Saturday brunches and a fresh new take on Sunday lunch will also be available.

The restaurant group currently has a portfolio of three other London-based pubs and dining rooms including The Henry Root, Princess Victoria and The Lady Ottoline.

James McLean, chief executive of Affinity Bars & Restaurants, commented: “We’re delighted to introduce Dickie Fitz to Fitzrovia. With its exciting and fresh Australasian concept, a menu created using Matt Robinson’s global experience and palate, and featuring weekend brunches, Sunday roasts and contemporary cocktails, we feel it’ll be a welcome addition to the thriving neighbourhood.”

The new open, bright space will be spread across two floors, with interiors designed by Kanvass, and will have a number of standout features including an art deco stained glass staircase. The restaurant will cater to 45 covers on the ground floor with a further 45 covers upstairs and 14 on the terrace.

Dickie Fitz will also be available for private hire and exclusive events, with a semi-private space available on the top floor seating up to 14 guests.
