Kerridge’s Bar & Grill
Tom Kerridge is sending critics into a spin with his first London restaurant, where the dishes are unashamedly decadent and wonderfully comforting. The owner of two-Michelin-starred gastropub Hand and Flowers in Marlow has made a home for himself at the Corinthia Hotel in Westminster where his all-day British brasserie is surprisingly laid-back given its swanky setting.
The interiors of Kerridge’s Bar & Grill are cosy and classic, think racing green walls and burgundy-hued leather upholstered booths. Already emerging as firm favourites are the lobster thermidor omelette; the mushroom risotto with crispy egg and aged Parmesan; and the deep fried brill and chips with pease pudding, tartare and matson spiced sauce. The brown butter tart with buttermilk ice cream sounds divine too.
