FAZENDA HAS OPENED IN BISHOPSGATE, PROMISING TO BRING A TASTE OF THE PAMPAS TO LONDON

Premium South-American restaurant group Fazenda has opened its doors to its first London restaurant. Spanning across two floors in the 100 Bishopsgate Tower in the heart of the square mile, the 170 cover restaurant features three luxurious private dining rooms, an elegant mezzanine lounge, and an expansive standalone bar and lounge with al-fresco tables for summer drinking. Reservations are available now.

The debut London menu promises to take the essence of traditional South American grill and the Rodizio concept the brand is famed for to another level, and features a new à la carte menu alongside the Rodizio. Inspired by  recent trips to Brazil and Argentina by Executive Chef  Francisco Martinez, starters include Gamba Patagonica (giant king prawn, spicy chimichurri), Caviar e Churros (Cornish Baeri caviar, churros, creme fraiche), & Wagyu Crudo (A4 grade wagyu beef tartare, charcuterie).

Main dishes include standout plates Pasta de Beterraba (beetroot tortellini, orange, feta cheese), Moqueca de Mar (cod, Carabinero prawn, mussels, tomato, coconut), and Truta (Scottish trout, piquillo peppers, onion, creme fraiche).

Reimagining traditional cuisine from the Pampas in Argentina and Southern Brazil, Fazenda centres around a passion for the highest quality of meats and freshly prepared sides, served in authentic Rodizio style (a unique method of serving a variety of grilled meats carved at the table). The Rodizio menu features a mouthwatering selection of twelve premium grilled meats, including Picanha (beef rump), Chuletas de Cordero (lamb cutlets), Barriga de Porco (pork belly), and Sobrecoxa de Frango (chicken thighs).

The new concept is set within an elegant, stylish, and refined space that promises to give visitors the atmosphere they need to feel special. The space throughout has been designed to enhance the warm and welcoming experience when dining at Fazenda, with the interior created by hospitality design studio Carroll Design. Every element of the space is intended to transport guests into a top-of-class cosmopolitan bar and restaurant in South America, with design elements including intricate walnut wall finishes, honed Bardiglio nuvolato marble, custom Italian leathers for seating, and stunning one-off feature chandeliers, drawing attention to the space’s high ceilings.

Complementing the à la carte and Rodizio menu, Fazenda Bishopsgate offers a large selection of the finest Argentian, Brazilian, Chilean, and Uruguayan wines, as well as a carefully curated bespoke cocktail menu – specifically made for the London restaurant. The cocktail menu meanwhile focuses on alternative and innovative expressions of South-American classics, aligning with the sophistication of the design of the restaurant.
