Corinthia Hotel London is proud to announce that renowned Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge, will open his first London restaurant, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, at the hotel on Monday, September 10, 2018, with reservation lines now open. 

Menu

Tom and Head Chef, Nick Beardshaw, have created a menu which harks back to classic British dishes and traditional techniques. Guests can expect a culinary experience to rival Tom’s Michelin-starred establishments. Tom has a reputation for serving his take on the UK’s most celebrated dishes. As such, the fish and chips will use the finest British fish, encased in a crisp batter to maintain moisture and flavor.

The menu reflects refined British comfort food and re-born classics, including:

- Fresh Cornish crab vol-au-vent with avocado, green apple, and crab bisque

- Claude’s mushroom ‘risotto’ with Daniel’s crispy egg and aged parmesan

- Glazed omelette ‘Lobster Thermidor’

- Kerridge’s fish and chips with pease pudding, tartar and matson spiced sauce

From the Rotisserie:

- Dry aged rib of beef from The Butcher’s Tap with ox cheek bordelaise, gherkin ketchup and triple cooked chips

- Creedy Carver duck breast and faggot with savoy cabbage, rotisserie apple sauce and duck fat pomme anna

- Half a Cotswold White chicken with braised gem lettuce, pickled lemon and soft polenta

Desserts:

- Dark chocolate pudding with crystallized malt biscuit, salted caramel and malted milk ice cream

- Scottish raspberry and rose geranium trifle with white chocolate, gin baba, and salted oats

- Brown butter tart with buttermilk ice cream

According to Tom and Nick, "The rotisserie gives huge benefit to anything that normally lends itself to being roasted. Not only does it create incredible caramelization it also provides a really even cook, from the edge to the center. With this in mind we will use the very best quality produce and serve it simply to allow it to stand out as the star of the dish." 

There will also be a set Sunday lunch menu as well as pre and post theater dining.

A Private Dining Room to the left of the bar will accommodate 18 people at a custom-made table. Guests can enjoy an exclusive dining experience whilst watching chefs prepare and cook dishes in front of them at a kitchen space within the wood-paneled dining room.

The Bar

Divided from the dining room by a partition of antique mirror panels, the bar area seats 40 and will become a destination bar for London.  Curved banquettes and large lounge seats finished in burgundy leather, as well as high stools at the marble bar set the informal seating area for this elegant yet relaxed space. There will be an extensive list of international wines and Champagne, with a focus on English sparkling wines.  A variety of ales and lagers will be available on tap from wooden beer casks visible through Georgian glass paneling as guests enter the restaurant.  A menu of cocktails and delicious bar snacks, including sausage rolls and Scotch eggs are also on offer.

Design

Kerridge’s Bar & Grill is situated in the grand, high-ceilinged restaurant space of almost 400m ² (approx 1,300 ft. ²), with 90 covers in the restaurant and 40 in the adjacent bar. The room features a dark green and burgundy color palette and is furnished with a mixture of leather-upholstered dining chairs and deep, button-backed banquettes.

A striking rotisserie, with a counter top, roasting large joints of meat, fish and vegetables in front of diners is a key attraction in the main restaurant space, adding theater to guests’ dining experience. Inspired by the menu at The Coach in Marlow, the rotisserie offers a daily special dish. Feature fridges showcasing meat supplied by Tom’s own butchers, The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow, adorn some of the main restaurant walls.

Pure CF, a furniture manufacturer based on Staffordshire, worked closely with Tom, his team and interior designers David Collins Studio to create bespoke furnishings for the restaurant. Pure CF’s team of skilled craftsmen designed banquettes and booths as well as a cheese and bread station, and four sommelier stations specifically for the venue.

Artwork

The restaurant will showcase a thoughtfully curated collection of artworks from gallerists West Contemporary.  Tom’s wife, Beth Cullen-Kerridge includes two major bronze sculptures ‘Steve’ and ‘Dorsal Angel’, which are positioned dramatically in the heart of the dining room. Smaller works by Beth are also displayed within an ‘art wall, also featuring a number of other West Contemporary artists including painters Chris Moon, Jim Threapleton, Carne Griffiths and Peter Ceredig- Evans, photographer Pascal Barker and sculptor Mark Beattie.

Mixed-media artist Robi Walters, known for taking discarded objects and making them beautiful again, has created a variety of signature ‘petal’ pieces for Kerridge's using menus collected from the general public by Tom through his social media channels. These vary from wedding menus and first dates to souvenir menus from all over the world and have been used to create two bespoke table tops within the restaurant to help preserve, yet evoke new food memories for diners at the restaurant. A 4 x 4ft wall piece will be completed by Tom and Robi together on site, with a limited edition print signed by both the artist and the chef which will be made available later in the year.
