After the disappointment of his Rib Room project at Belgravia’s Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel falling through in late-2017, there’s good news from Tom Kerridge. The chef and restaurateur behind the Hand & Flowers, The Coach and The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow) will launch his first London restaurant at The Corinthia Hotel later this year.
The restaurant will be a relaxed British brasserie-style dining room, bringing an all-day buzzy new addition to the area, reflecting Tom’s culinary talent. The restaurant will be located on the site that is currently Massimo Restaurant & Bar, on the ground floor of the hotel, with a separate direct entrance off Northumberland Avenue, and a new and updated interior design by David Collins Studio.
Since opening The Hand and Flowers in partnership with Greene King in 2005, Tom Kerridge’s career path has progressed and grown. In 2011, The Hand and Flowers was the first pub to receive two stars in the Michelin Guide, an accolade that is still held today. In 2014, The Coach opened, and received a Michelin star in 2017. He has appeared on many television programmes including: Great British Food Revival, Tom Kerridge’s Proper Pub Food, Tom Kerridge’s Best Ever Dishes, hosting Saturday Kitchen, hosting Spring Kitchen, and also the front for BBC’s Food and Drink.
