After closing his Fitzrovia flagship Dabbous in summer 2017, as well as nearby Barnyard, Ollie Dabbous is back with a new venture. Hide occupies a huge (250-cover) space on Mayfair’s Piccadilly, offering dining and drinking across three floors, connected by a striking spiral staircase, with spectacular views over Green Park.
The restaurant opened today (17 April) in partnership with the chef’s mixologist business partner Oskar Kinberg and Hedonism Wines (expect a stonking wine list). It is described in the PR bumph as a “relaxed and holistic setting in which to savour seasonal cooking at its best”.
Located on the ground floor, “Ground” offers an à la carte menu for lunch and dinner, as well as afternoon tea and breakfast. An open bakery also serves freshly baked breads, cakes and viennoiseries.
Guests choosing to eat in “Above”, on the mezzanine, can enjoy a tasting menu and set lunch, showcasing seasonal ingredients. The PR adds: “Served with restraint and finesse, these dishes see Ollie take his cooking to new heights.”
Finally the bar “Below” offers a selection of Hedonism’s finest and rarest spirits, alongside a cocktail menu from Oskar Kinberg. Guests can choose their wine from Hide’s list or from the Hedonism store which they say currently has the largest selection in the world.
Individually styled private dining rooms, serving either restaurant dishes or seasonal feasting menus are available for parties of between four and 20.
Hide is open seven days a week, from 7.30am until 1am. For reservations, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
