The Savoy Hotel in London will soon be launching a brand new restaurant concept, heavily rooted in history and heritage, named Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill. Opening on Thursday 2nd of May, Kaspar’s will draw on the legacy of the infamous hotel for thematic relevance and will adopt a quaint Twenties and Thirties style for customers to enjoy.
Located on the Strand and with a view of the River Thames, Kaspar’s will be the newest and most exciting addition to the luxurious Savoy, offering a sophisticated yet informal experience for all who visit.
The menu, crafted by Canadian-born head chef James Pare, promises to include options to appeal to all tastes, while the centrepiece of the restaurant will feature an impressive oyster bar.
Designed by the Robert Angell Design Studio, the interior of the restaurant will radiate elegance by displaying an art deco, twenties-inspired arrangement. The charming setting will correspond with the relaxed tone of the surroundings, which should make Kaspar’s a delightful dining venue.
The real star of the show, however, is a three-foot tall black cat sculpture called Kaspar. The friendly feline was sculpted in 1926 to accompany prestigious customers who were dining in parties of 13, with the intention of negating the implied bad luck of the number. This concept was extremely popular among guests at The Savoy from then on. Perhaps Kaspar’s most notable fan was Sir Winston Churchill, who ensured the cat was present every time he attended the restaurant. The namesake cat is always available to join parties for meals, however booking in advance is essential.
