Seven Park Place, the newly named restaurant at London’s five-star St. James’s Hotel, has officially launched this week with William Drabble, former head chef of Aubergine, at the helm.

The 26-cover restaurant has been designed by Tony Filmer of hotel interior specialist Tully Filmer to complement the hotel’s 1920s architecture, with deep aubergines and flamboyant floral prints.

Drabble, who joins St. James’s after leaving his position at Aubergine​ in June, has designed a modern-French menu consisting of predominantly British ingredients, which features dishes such as Snail braised in Red Wine with Bacon, Root Vegetables and Garlic Puree; Roasted Grouse with Blackberries and Thyme; and Fillet of Turbot with a Fricassee of Langoustines and Giroles, and Baby Leeks.

Drabble will oversee all aspects of the hotel’s dining offer, including private dining, room service, and St. James’s more informal space, William’s Bar & Bistro alongside head chef Philipp Vogel, and food and beverage manager Christophe Thuilot, former restaurant manager at The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge.
