Adam Handling at the Belmond Cadogan
Adam Handling is fast becoming the new Jason Atherton in terms of his restlessness and rapid rate of expansion. Having opened a second Frog in Covent Garden, as a more fine dining sister site to his Shoretich original serving spellbinding dishes packed with flavour, the talented Scot will now be heading up the food offering at the uber swish Belmond Cadogan Hotel in Chelsea.
Handling will be responsible for everything from breakfast and afternoon tea to room service, but his attention will be focused on the hotel’s flagship restaurant, due to open in March, where he’ll offer a tasting menu and a pared down à la carte featuring six starters, mains and desserts.
Wine will play a starring role at the restaurant, which will shine a light on Burgundy and Champange, offering an enviable selection by the glass.
