Bookings for Michelin star chef Shaun Rankin’s new restaurant inside boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair were snapped up by hungry punters just 48 hours of the booking lines opening.
Ormer Mayfair will have a soft launch period from August 23 to September 19 and demand from diners resulted in more than 1,000 bookings being made for this time.
Those lucky enough to be booked in will also received 50% off food as an introductory offer.
The new Ormer Mayfair is part of a £15m refurbishment of the 165-year-old boutique hotel Flemings and will be a ‘celebration of English heritage’.
Rankin will also continue to run his Michelin-star restaurant Ormer in Jersey alongside his new London venture.
General manager of Flemings Mayfair, Henrik Muehle commented: “It was wonderful to see such a strong response. As soon as it was announced the bookings came flying in. We’re delighted that diners are sharing our excitement about the upcoming launch of Ormer Mayfair and Shaun Rankin and the team can’t wait to get started.”
