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