I’m writing today to keep you in the loop of some changes happening at Sophie’s Steakhouse over the next few months.
To cut to the chase, we shall be closing our Covent Garden restaurant on 4th June 2017.
We are lucky to love what we do. Indeed, many of our best business decisions have been led by the heart. Opening in Covent Garden was no exception: Despite being a huge project, we knew it was the right place for us. Therefore, we can understand entirely why a world-leading boutique hotel has fallen in love with our corner of Covent Garden. After some long and serious discussions, we’ve decided that it’s the right time to move on from the Covent Garden site and allow another interesting project to move into that space.
Rupert & I opened our Covent Garden restaurant in November 2008 on a mission to serve great steaks and fab cocktails in a warm, welcoming and (most importantly!) fun environment. I am so proud of what our team has accomplished on this journey together and hope you agree that we have achieved what we set out to deliver.
But, every journey has an end. Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Covent Garden, we couldn’t be more excited about what the future holds. We are currently building a new venue in Soho, which we hope to launch in Autumn 2017. We would love you to join us on our next step. Sign up to hear about our latest Soho news here
Our industry is all about people – one of the pleasures of owning and operating a business like ours is watching your team grow with you. Rupert & I cannot thank our team enough for all their hard work and support. We have witnessed the birth of more than a few restaurant super stars amongst our team since 2008 and feel so lucky to come to work everyday with such a dynamic and engaging group of people.
Covent Garden remains an alluring part of town for us and we plan to return when the time is right. Watch this space…
Finally, we would like to thank our incredible, loyal guests for all the memorable moments of the of the past few years. It has been a truly special experience and we look forward to welcoming you back in Chelsea and Soho very soon.
Thank you all for your continued support – we couldn’t do it without you.
Sophie & Rupert
