Dinings SW3 is the sister restaurant to the original Dinings restaurant which opened in Marylebone over ten years ago. When the decision was made to open a second restaurant, we were brought in to redesign an existing kitchen and create a high-quality operation for the new restaurant. It has an impressive 24-cover dining room and 10-cover sushi counter, as well as a courtyard, providing the ultimate Japanese dining experience.
Serving up authentic, Izakaya-style dishes, the Knightsbridge-based restaurant makes use of both Japanese and European ingredients to create the impressive menu filled with a range of sushi, sashimi, sake, and grilled dishes.
The marble clad sushi bar and internal stainless-steel framework had to be designed and built precisely to hold under counter refrigeration and hot holding elements, along with ambient drawer storage. We also had to include a support element for the fascia, marble work tops, prep sinks, and hand wash.
The kitchen was mostly stripped of old fabrication and equipment, which included a central island suite. New fabrication was then supplied and installed to support the redesign and seamlessly integrate with some remaining elements which included a new services spine built within the existing canopy.
We love working on innovative restaurant environments like this and were privileged to be involved with the Dinings SW3 venture.
