Beaverbrook, one of the biggest new hotels to launch this year, has now unveiled its ‘innovative’ new Japanese restaurant.
Following the much-anticipated opening of The House at Beaverbrook in September, The Dining Room Japanese Grill is the newest addition to the property, with head chef Taiji Maruyama at the helm.
Having trained at Tokyo’s famous Kojyu, Maruyama also boasts experience at the likes of Nobu London and Monaco. He joins Beaverbrook from his role as executive chef and founder of KIRU.
The new menu at the Japanese Grill is promising to ‘engage the senses’ and take guests on a ‘culinary journey’ with Maruyama’s approach to Japanese cuisine and will complement the Anglo-Italian menu served in the hotel’s other restaurant The Garden Room.
Head gardener Elliot Beveridge is growing Shiso Leaf, a variety of Japanese herbs and edible flowers, while next on the cards is Beverbrook Daikon and Wasabi.
Working alongside Maruyama is head pastry chef Chris Underwood, who comes armed with a wealth of experience Fera at Claridge’s and The Devonshire Club.
Adjacent to The Dining Room is the Parrot Bar, headed up head barman Rafal Sanchez.
Beaverbrook is overseen by hotel manager Andrew Spearman and owned by Joel Cadbury, Tim Edwards, Ollie Vigors and Ian Todd, who bought the property in 2010.
