The Lunar Pub Company will open its second site – Ganymede – in London’s Belgravia on 7 September.
The 2,500ft2 site was designed by Novo Design House and is split between a 30-cover bar and a 55-cover dining room.
Trading seven days-a-week for lunch and dinner, including Saturday brunch and Sunday roasts, Ganymede will offer innovative British food. The menu has been created by owner and chef director Oliver Marlowe and newly appointed head chef Daniel Mertl, who has previously held positions at renowned restaurants such as Chez Bruce, Noize and Michelin-starred The Glasshouse.
The 55-cover dining room will serve a daily changing menu of elevated British dishes such as crab and basil raviolo, leek fondue and creamed bisque; quail and foie gras wellington, creamed potatoes and roast shallot; Cornish hake with white bean puree, roast salsify and burnt lemon and caper dressing; and for dessert, a white chocolate crème brûlée with blueberry compote. A blackboard will also champion a range of premium meat cuts and daily changing specials.
The intimate 30-cover bar area will play host to an extensive wine list and signature cocktails, alongside a range of top shelf spirits, as well as lagers and real ales.
Owner director, Hubert Beatson-Hird said: “With life reopening and the appetite for unforgettable dining and drinking experiences greater than ever, Ganymede couldn’t be launching at a better time.
“I can’t wait to show people what we’ve been working on behind the scenes for the past 18-months, and I’m confident Ganymede will be a stellar addition to Ebury Street.”
While Marlowe commented: “To reflect the Belgravia location, we’ve introduced an elegance to the interiors, and this is something head chef Dan Mertl has also channelled into his menu too. Having had the pleasure of previously working with Dan at The Glasshouse in Kew, I know how talented he is and I’m excited to showcase the elevated culinary creations we have designed for Ganymede.”
Ganymede is the second site from Lunar Pub Company, the first being The Hunter’s Moon in South Kensington.
