Embracing Tradition and Taste: Claridge’s Restaurant, a New Chapter in Culinary Excellence

As of June 2023, the legendary Mayfair Hotel embarks on a fresh culinary journey, reintroducing the much-loved Claridge’s Restaurant. This stunning establishment, imbued with a timeless Art Deco charm, has discreetly unlocked its doors onto Davies Street, with plans for a grand unveiling in September.

A Legacy Reimagined

Having once been the heart of the hotel over 20 years ago, the Claridge’s Restaurant revives its prestigious legacy under the masterful guidance of Chef Coalin Finn. With its refined British cuisine infusing classic inspirations with contemporary twists, the restaurant is poised to be the new heartbeat of the Mayfair community, luring both Londoners and international visitors.

A Food Connoisseur’s Delight

Operational for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant boasts a menu curated by Irish-born Chef Finn, an alumnus of establishments such as Inverlochy Castle, Davies and Brook, and Sketch. The menu is a testament to British gastronomy, spotlighting locally sourced, premium ingredients. Starter highlights include Buckwheat Crumpets with truffle puree and Dorset Snails served with parsley and parmesan croute, while mains range from Grilled Native Lobster to Artichoke Agnolotti. Decadent desserts and an exquisite all-British cheese selection round out the culinary experience.

Art Deco Elegance

Bryan O’Sullivan Studio’s design of the restaurant pays tribute to the hotel’s rich Art Deco heritage. Calcutta Viola marble and antique brass accents merge with a modern color palette to create an atmosphere of understated luxury. Unique features such as the mosaic flooring, leather banquettes, and art deco starburst skylights bring a sense of glamour to the space. Adding to the ambiance are selected pieces from Claridge’s private art collection, including works by Sean Scully, Guggi, Richard Gorman, and Brian Clarke.

An Al fresco Retreat and Cocktail Hub

The expansive windows along Davies Street flood the restaurant with natural light and provide an entrance to a charming alfresco terrace. The venue also boasts an elegantly lacquered tortoiseshell bar, an ideal spot for a classic seasonal cocktail or aperitif. Standouts include the Ambre Highball, a tantalizing white wine spritzer with stone fruit notes, and the Peach Piquant, a compelling blend of tequila and mezcal.
