Zelman Meats closes St Paul's site
Zelman Meats St Paul's will be closing after operating its final service today due to the site "not working".
"A sad day but it wasn't working. Good news is that we managed to keep all staff employed so zero redundancies. We very much live to fight another day!" tweeted Dave Strauss, director of operations at Goodman Restaurants, which operates the brand.
Zelman Meats still has two London sites in Knightsbridge and Soho, as well as a Zelman Drinks bar in Finsbury Park. Goodman also owns and operates the Goodman Steakhouse, Burger & Lobster and Beast brands.
The business is named after one of Goodman's founders, Mischa Zelman (who started the restaurant business in Moscow in 2000 along with school friend Ilya Demichev). The first Zelman Meats restaurant in Soho opened on the site of the former site of the group's fish restaurant Rex & Mariano in 2015.
