With its colourful murals, dark-wood features and plush leather seating, the “lovely” dining room of this Art Deco hotel near Selfridges faithfully recreates a rather Manhattan-esque style. The menu is likewise praised by some reporters for its “superb American fare” (although its mix of grills with caviar, oysters and more generic locally sourced dishes – such as Dover sole – equally fit the image of typical British clubland venues). No longer run by Corbin & King as once it was, it is “still consistent but now quite expensive”.

Within a luxurious Art Deco hotel near Selfridges, this swish venue (majorly refurbished in 2021) has the “proper spacing”, “low level of noise” and “expert management” that’s ideal for a business meal (“particularly if you book a booth”). The menu aims to recreate that of ‘a New York-style grill room with a timeless selection of transatlantic favourites, salads, crustacea and steaks’, and by and large it succeeds. Top Tip – “afternoon tea like you’re in a Wodehouse novel”.

This luxurious Art Deco hotel near Selfridges with its 1920s NYC-style grill room underwent a major refurbishment during the lockdowns to emerge in August 2021 with a lighter, slightly more colourful look (with striking new murals and banquettes now in deep-red leather). Chef Ben Boeynaems oversees the cooking, which focuses on shellfish, grills, steaks and tableside salads.

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.
