Mauro Colagreco, the chef behind the three Michelin-star Mirazur restaurant in Menton, France will open three restaurants at Raffles London at the OWO when the hotel opens in late 2022.

The renowned chef will open a fine-dining restaurant, an avant-garde chef’s table experience and a more casual brasserie. 

The restaurants will be committed to seasonality and sustainability, with dishes featuring produce from local suppliers.

Colagreco’s menus will also be available for in-room dining, private events and for residents of the OWO Residences by Raffles.

The hotel is set to have 11 restaurants and bars in total.

Colagreco commented: “The incredible location, combined with the professionalism of the Raffles London team, convinced me that this was the ideal time and place to launch for the first time in London with concepts that will be tailor-made for Raffles.”

Stephen Alden, Chief Executive of Raffles & Orient Express, added: “Chef Mauro Colagreco is undoubtedly one of the world’s most recognised chefs and our partnership reaffirms London as a pre-eminent global dining destination. Mauro has a phenomenal reputation and we’re excited to see him bring his experience to Raffles London with concepts that are tailor-made for our well-travelled guests.”

The 125-bedroom hotel is slated to open late next year and will be set within The Old War Office, which  was once the site of the original Palace of Whitehall, home to Henry VIII and other monarchs. 

From 1906, the building served as the office to prominent political and military leaders of the 20th century, notably Sir Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Lord Kitchener, and the haunt of the British Secret Service.

The hotel will be the first London hotel for the Raffles brand, which was first established in Singapore in 1887.

Indian conglomerate Hinduja Group acquired the OWO property for £350m in 2014.
