This venerable Mayfair restaurant reopened in 2014, having been given a new lick of paint and a little bit of a makeover. Well, you'd need one too if you'd been around since 1931. By the looks of things, it remains one of the grandest places in London in which to eat. Service will no doubt be every bit as impressive, too.
As the name implies, it majors in grilled meats. Expect dishes such as Welsh lamb with polenta au gratin, salsify and almond, wild venison with a red wine jus, Highland Wagyu sirloin, pan-seared and braised pigeon, grilled suckling pig and grilled John Dory with mussels, jerusalem artichoke and kale.
Set lunch, dinner and pre-theatre menus also feature, as do Sunday roasts.
Delicious dishes range from grill favourites alongside the restaurant’s signature blue lobster chowder and an extensive sweet soufflé menu – the first of its kind in London - plus classics from the restaurant’s past such as the carving trolley and Sunday roast.
Lively and welcoming, the re-imagined restaurant fuses The Dorchester’s iconic elegance with a contemporary tone and creative details. Interior architect Bruno Moinard was commissioned by The Dorchester to create a vibrant and timeless setting.
The restaurant features a striking, hand-blown Murano glass chandelier and contrasting natural materials including zinc, copper and marble, set against butterscotch leather and oak parquet flooring. Pivoting wall panels create a separate ambience from day to night, creating an inviting atmosphere morning to night.
