Daniel Humm at Claridge’s
While still only a rumour, if the whispers turn out to be true, the arrival of a London take on Swiss chef Daniel Humm’s 11 Madison Park at Claridge’s will be the highest profile opening in the capital this year. Simon Rogan’s Fera, which had a Michelin star, closed its doors for good on 31 December, leaving big shoes to fill. Humm, who heads up the three star 11 Madison Park in New York might be just the man for the job.
Nothing has been confirmed but the London foodie rumour mill has been in overdrive ever since, with Humm being tipped as the chef to take over. According to Eater, a restaurant insider revealed that Humm has “recently stayed at the hotel and had meetings with its managers”.
