Greyhound Café has arrived in London via Thailand thanks to Principal Contractor, The French Group in conjunction with B3 Design. This new restaurant is a welcome addition to the existing high end eateries in Fitzrovia and is the first opening for the chain in Europe.
The Thai influence is apparent as soon as you walk in. Floral displays give the space an authentic eastern feel and help to lift up the monochrome interior. Laid over two floors, the architect B3 Design have worked with French’s to give the space a genuine Thai feel. The level of detail can be seen in the alphabet bar tiles, all individually crafted especially for Greyhound Café, and photographed by Tom Bird Photography.
Paying homage to its Thai roots, the food preparation area has open storage shelves above the bar utilising the space for crockery and cooking tools. As well as this they have a giant hanging fish trap and a quirky display at their drinks fountain.
In keeping with the monochrome tableaux, the daily specials are introduced on traditional blackboards with the staff adding their own chalk drawing interpretations. The basement has an interior redolent of a Bangkok street scene with corrugated metals walls and wired café chairs.
The restaurant is a mix of traditional an international all fused together beautifully by The French Group.
