Corinthia Hotel London has announced that British Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge will open a new restaurant at the hotel later this year, his first in the capital.
The restaurant will be a British brasserie-style dining room, located on the site that is currently Massimo Restaurant & Bar, on the ground floor of the hotel.
The restaurant will have a separate direct entrance off Northumberland Avenue, and a new and updated interior design by David Collins Studio.
It will open in the spring.
Commenting on the announcement, Thomas Kochs, managing director of Corinthia Hotel London, stated: “It is important to us, Corinthia Hotel London, to be an integral part of the city, and for our guests from London and internationally to experience true British hospitality. When we met Tom, we knew he was the perfect partner to open a restaurant together. We admire his approach to food, restaurants and his spirit of hospitality. I am confident that together we will create an incredible dining experience.”
The move will mark Kerridge’s first venture in London and will be run alongside the two Michelin-starred Hand and Flowers in Marlow, The Coach pub and The Butcher’s Tap, with the chef explaining that the new restaurant at The Corinthia will take inspiration from these successful eateries.
He added: “We are incredibly excited about this opportunity to bring a bit of what we are doing in Marlow to London. Corinthia Hotel London is one of London’s most prestigious hotels, and we are looking forward to doing what we do best – quality British cooking that is modern and exciting. We will be taking inspiration from our Michelin-starred pub The Coach, and The Butcher’s Tap, as well as our first venture, the two Michelin-starred The Hand and Flowers.”
Kerridge opened the gastropub The Hand & Flowers in 2005 and within a year gained his first Michelin star. In the 2012, he won a second Michelin star, the first time a pub had done so. As a chef he has appeared on the Great British Menu, MasterChef and Saturday Kitchen.
