September 2019: AHC has launched a luxury Sunday lunch, with bottomless dishes, all-you-can-eat lobster and free-flowing drinks packages.
Steeped in history, The Cadogan hotel on Sloane Street had a major refurbishment, from which it rose, phoenix-like, as the Belmond Cadogan. Hot chef du jour Adam Handling is 'handling' the entire food offering, from breakfast and room service to afternoon tea to this eponymous restaurant (with its own entrance on Pont Street); Adam says he wants to "draw on the heritage of the building and reinterpret it in my own way" - with Lillie Langtry and Oscar Wilde as former residents, that could mean almost anything!
Harden's survey result
Sloane Street’s old Cadogan Hotel – formerly a creaky, old Chelsea anachronism – has been transformed to join the über-luxurious Belmond portfolio: it now provides a “gorgeous” and luxurious backdrop to a meal (“perfect to impress a client in Chelsea”). Wunderkind chef, Adam Handling, is in charge of the dining room, and fans say that his individualistic cuisine is “knock-out”: “from the bread with chicken-butter onwards, everything about this menu is now the best of modern British”. However, there’s also a slightly worrying proportion of disgruntled reports too: “as a massive fan of Adam Handling’s Frog restaurants and even his cooking at Caxton Grill back in the day, I was anticipating greatness from AH Chelsea. But the food was sorely disappointing, confused, and as such, very overpriced. Hoping the food matches its surroundings soon!”
