Chef Paul Foster’s debut London restaurant GrassFed has closed.

Launched last summer within a railway arch in Camden’s Hawley Wharf development,​ the restaurant was focused on high-quality grass-fed beef but was not a steakhouse in the traditional sense, even going so far as to eschew chips. 

The 50-cover venue was positively received, attracting a glowing review from The Telegraph critic William Sitwell. 

Foster’s representative confirmed the restaurant was no longer trading but did not give a reason for its closure. 

The chef is best known for his Salt restaurant in Stratford-upon-Avon, which launched in 2017 and won a Michelin star in 2018. 

Earlier this month, Foster - whose cooking CV includes Restaurant Sat Bains and Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons - took to social media to announce that from 10 April his main restaurant operation would switch from tasting menu-only to small sharing plates (a sharing tasting menu option will also be available). 

A more refined and premium tasting menu will be offered on a communal chef’s table upstairs that was previously only used for private parties. 

The changes to Salt follow the loss of the restaurant’s Michelin star​ in the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2024. 

Salt’s booking system will be switched over to Tock because the platform is well-suited to offering two distinct dining experiences, Foster says.

"These changes are exciting. It’s a new era for us and we’re evolving for the better. Our commitment to high quality cuisine has not changed at all,” Foster says. “This will make us more approachable and give us much more flexibility. Our food will always still be about incredible produce, beautifully cooked and purity of flavour.”
