Gary Rhodes' new Rhodes W1 Restaurant at the Cumbernauld Hotel in Marble Arch, London, is to open towards the end of April.
Situated next to his Rhodes W1 Brasserie, the 45-cover restaurant will be "very pretty, small-scale, top-end and very glam", according to a spokesperson. It will "use many more French influences than Gary's ever used before".
Part of the menu will be made up of small dishes, with no minimum spending limit so diners can visit for a glass of wine and one dish or a fuller meal.
Brian Hughson, formerly Head Chef at the Gherkin in the City, is heading up the kitchen, while Kelly Hoppen has designed the venue – her first restaurant project.
