Summary

In late 2018, Corbin & King lost the management contract for this luxurious Art Deco hotel near Selfridges (to the Barclay family), including its “exceptional-looking”, 1920s NYC-style grill room. However for a certain kind of swish American experience, it still nails it: for example, even a reporter who thinks “it’s tailed off a bit since leaving the care of C&K” feels “it’s still a must-visit to experience the classic, US-country-club style”; and the “transatlantic, slightly retro cuisine” that goes with that (“very rich – but great if that’s to your taste”). On the flip side, a cynical view is that it’s at risk of becoming “a theme park for nostalgic Americans longing for the food of their childhood”. Top Tip – “a wonderful breakfast” for business or pleasure.

Summary

Corbin & King’s “terrific 1920s New York-style grill room in the stunning art deco Beaumont Hotel is a stone’s throw away from Selfridges, yet impossible to come across by chance”. According to most reports, a visit is “a luxurious treat”, on account of its “comfortable and plush” style and “typical American fare, from hot dogs to chicken pot pie”. To some tastes though, the pricey food is so “straightforward” as to seem “a little uninspired.” Top Tips – “the breakfast hashes are superb” and “design-your-own ice cream sundae with an amazing selection of flavours, toppings and sauces is great fun for kids and adults alike”.

Summary

“You feel like you are stepping onto the set of a Hollywood movie with dim lighting, booths and decadent atmosphere” at Corbin & King’s “luxurious” Mayfair dining room: “a proper, traditionally wood-panelled room” which provides “a Gatsby-worthy setting for Alaïa-clad blue-bloods to gorge on classic US comfort food”“meatloaf and mac ’n’ cheese, as well as excellent grills”. On the downside, critics feel the menu is “boring”“fine so far as it goes, but rather overpriced for what it is” – and the setting “a little stuffy”.

Summary

“Utterly professional service and fabulous surroundings” help win votes for Corbin & King’s “serious”, “panelled” Mayfair dining room, particularly as an ideal venue “for an understated or confidential business meeting”. Its “throwback menu” of “classic American dishes” fits the bill too – “proper chaps’ food”.
