Due to open in September 2019, Hilton’s new luxury Mayfair hotel has signed Jason Atherton’s Social Company to oversee all the food; former City Social head chef Paul Walsh will be heading up the stoves at this all-day, brasserie-style operation. The debut is bang opposite the recent opening from Atherton’s former employer, Gordon Ramsay’s Lucky Cat, and much has been made in the press of the two ‘going head-to-head’.
The Betterment Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Although the restaurant has been nicely remodeled from its previous incarnation at the Britannia, the holiday dinner set menu proved to be a disgrace. The first course of salmon was skimpy. There was no soup course. The turkey was processed and not freshly carved turkey. The stuffing was poor, and worse yet, the popover was placed over the gravy, so that the bottom was soggy. The cranberry sauce was skimpy, as were any accompanying vegetables. The dessert pudding was small and mediocre, as was the cheese course. The music was intrusive and loud. This proved to be an expansive fiasco."
