Pavilion, a new restaurant, champagne bar and deli owned by the founder of Foxton’s estate agency, Jon Hunt, opens today (30 May). The kitchen is overseen by Adam Simmonds (most recently of Danesfield House in Marlow) who previously worked under big hitters such as Raymond Blanc and Marco Pierre White, as well as putting in stints at The Ritz and The Lanesborough.
Now Simmonds masterminds the menu for Pavilion, a 60-cover, all-day dining spot in Kensington High Street and former property tycoon Hunt’s first foray into the restaurant world. Hunt does, however, own the adjoining Pavilion members club (previously known as Dryland), which you will have to join if you want access to the restaurant’s private 40-seater terrace. Social membership is £95 a month and you’ll get priority booking at Pavilion, as well as terrace and club access for your money.
Takeaway food is available from the deli which stocks over 50 varieties of cheeses and British cured meats sourced from Cannon & Cannon (of Brixton Market), as well as Pavilion’s own chutneys, jams, bread and pastries.
