Bream cafe

We were delighted to be involved in Sidar’s new venture – Beam Café on the sort after Highstreet of Highbury London.

 

The Brief:

 

To design an island cooking suite that on one side would cater for a lunch menu and casual dining with the opposite side catering for a flamboyant chef, enabling him to run private dining sessions and chefs’ specials predominantly based around the bespoke manufactured Robata Grill.

The Result: (Before Hygiene Clean and Final Polish)

A near perfectly balanced kitchen based around a central cooking island. Prep space all around the perimeter with a large pass and hot cupboard on the service end.

The potwash is out of view from the private dining area behind a partitioned wall but in sight of the cooking area.

Upstairs features a bespoke bar that faces trade as they entre and has split glass wash stations to cope with demand – with busy match days in mind.

 

We purposely chose the following equipment, bearing both budget and performance in mind:

  • Refrigeration from Foster Xtra

  • Fabrication from CED

  • Fryers by Valentine

  • Griddles and Range from Blue Seal

  • Bespoke Robata Grill

  • Rational Combi Oven

  • Meiko premium dishwasher with heat recovery

 

We’d like to thank both Sidar and Joe for involving us in this fantastic project.
