Claw goes permanent in Carnaby


4/1/18 - updated with soft launch details

What: Claw

In a nutshell: Crab and a lot more in Carnaby

Summing it all up: They've been popping up around town for the past few years, but now shellfish specialists Claw have found their own spot. Expect lots of crab and plenty of surf and turf options too...


The low-down

They've been popping up all over town in the past few years and now Claw are about to open their own permanent restaurant in Carnaby. 

As you might expect from the name, crab is most definitely on the menu at Claw. The man behind Claw, Fabian Clark, gets his seafood directly from fishermen for the best produce - and that also helps to keep the costs down. 

Together with chef Josh Levy they have a menu that "is a homage to the best of coastal Britain". As for what's on that menu:

  • Crab Beignets with crab mayonnaise
  • Fried Chicken & Caviar
  • Squid Bolognese ‘Sloppy Joe’
  • Pork Stuffed Squid with Kaffir Lime (yes please to this!)
  • Toasted milk parfait, sour toffee & gingersnap

All of that sounds pretty much like everything we want to eat and we do like the surf and pork options...
