What: Tom Kerridge at The Corinthia (name to come)
In a nutshell: Tom Kerridge does London
Summing it all up: His Buckinghamshire pub was the first pub to win two Michelin stars. Now Tom Kerridge is bringing some of that magic to London for his first restaurant in the city
We've always thought the beautiful David Collins-designed dining room at The Corinthia Hotel down by Whitehall was an amazing space in search of a restaurant to do it justice. Now it seems as though they've finally got the perfect fit.
When Tom Kerridge announced last year that his plans to open a restaurant at the Jumeirah Carlton hotel in Knightsbridge had fallen through, it disappointed fans who were hoping he'd bring his Michelin-starred magic to the capital. But now the chef has bounced back with a deal to open at the five star Corinthia.
Beautiful as the space is - it is getting an update by David Collins studios, and the restaurant will be a "British Brasserie".
Kerridge says: "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.”
