Steve Lakeman restaurant manager Steak of the Art
Steve Lakeman will now take on the day-to-day management of Steak of the Art an exciting new venture that when open will cater for around 100 people serving locally sourced steaks alongside an art gallery that will showcase and sell quality affordable art and hold artistic exhibitions and events.
A well-known face on the Bristol scene Steve was previously in charge of Aqua Italia on Welsh Back. Prior to that he was in charge of opening and running Hall and Woodhouse's £6.3 million flagship site in Bath city centre.
He is now planning on using his extensive experience to establish Steak of the Art as one of Bristol's best destination restaurants as well as making it a centre for the dynamic Bristol art scene.
Located on Cathedral Walk in what was the Crest Nicholson sales office, the new restaurant will occupy 4,000 sq ft in the bustling Harbourside area of Bristol.
Work to convert the premises, which is the brainchild of classically trained Chef and entrepreneur Steve Bowen, is currently underway and will include a feature bar that will greet guests as they arrive.
The new concept is based on the simple steak restaurants of Paris and London but set within an artistically inspired environment that one might find in chic Barcelona.
Steve Lakeman said: "This is a really exciting new concept and one I really believe will capture the imagination of the people of Bristol.
"Not only will customers be able to enjoy some top quality food but they will also be able to take in some excellent art. The area has really grown over the last year and to be located near the waterside and alongside the famous Brunel Mile will really help make this part of Bristol one to head for.
"We will insist on serving the best food the region has to offer with produce coming from Warson's Farm in Devon, Warren's butchers in Launceston and Fish for Thought in Cornwall.
"We will also be serving a range of locally brewed drinks including the Bristol Beer Factory.
"For those people who just want to visit the art gallery or enjoy a quiet drink some lighter bites will be available."
