Harrods reveals new Dining Hall concept

The iconic department store in London’s Knightsbridge has unveiled details of its new Dining Hall which is set to feature a number of restaurants with a wine bar at its core.

Known formerly as the Meat & Fish Hall, the launch of the Dining Hall will mark the subsequent stage of a two-year renovation of the department store’s celebrated food halls.

Designed by David Collins Studio, the hall will feature six bars and restaurants with a wine bar at its heart offering more that 100 wines available by the glass alongside a selection of bar snacks and ‘special dishes’ devised by Caviar House & Prunier.

Created utilising produce from the Roastery & Bake Hall and the Fresh Market Hall, diners will have the opportunity to sample dishes prepared by Harrods’s own chefs.

Serving seafood sourced directly from Harrods’s fishmongers, the Hall’s Fish Bar will feature dishes such as Faroe Islands smoked salmon, catch of the day and Harrods’s signature fish and chips.

The Grill’s menu will include dry-aged beef, rotisserie chicken and seasonal game alongside T-bone, fillet and porterhouse steak with sides of triple-cooked fries, truffle mac-and-cheese and creamed greens.

Offering fresh pasta hand-made in-house, The Pasta Bar will serve traditional carbonara and pappardelle al ragù while Vineet Bhatia’s 26-cover restaurant, Kama by Vineet, will offer a selection of ‘modernised regional Indian classics.’

Eddie Lim, also behind the Mango Tree and Chai Wu restaurant within the department store, will oversee operations at the Dining Hall’s Sushi Bar.

Chris Dee, Harrods’s director of food, said: “The Dining Hall is a true celebration of everything we have to offer in our Food Halls. Not only is the food impeccably sourced by our team of expert food buyers, the creation of the dishes – which are all made in-house – is a live showcase of the talent and passion we have for food.”

Founded by Charles Henry Harrod in 1834, Harrods has occupied its current building on Knightsbridge’s Brompton Road since 1912.
