What: The Mediterranean Vintry Kitchen and the Mercer Roof Terrace
In a nutshell: Med and British dining in an independent hotel
Summing it all up: Those who are fans of South Kensington’s The Ampersand will want to make a note of this one - the City's newest hotel Vintry & Mercer boasts multiple places to eat and drink, including a rooftop restaurant where you can enjoy the view along with your charcoal-grilled meal.
The City's getting a new independent hotel next year by the name of Vintry & Mercer, and along with it, two new restaurants, plus a cocktail bar..
The Mediterranean Vintry Kitchen will be a relaxed, open-plan affair, open all day to serve small plates from the Med. Such big flavours demand similarly big wines, so it's good to know there'll be plenty for you to choose from thanks to their dedicated wine gantry.
Or (and this seems like a very strong choice for us) take your dinner on the terrace, where you can relish the view along with your dinner. The menu will be modern British, and they'll be taking advantage of their charcoal oven to produce a food that focuses on farm-to-plate with seasonal ingredients.
Finally, the subterranean cocktail bar. It's been named as DND - hotel slang for do not disturb - and will be inspired by the speakeasy bars of 1920s New York, so think velvet chairs, art deco detailing, and of course, lots and lots of vintage cocktails. Staff will also be on hand to provide you with a selection of bar nibbles too.
