Called L’Epicerie, the 14-seat chef’s table will be home to private dining, masterclasses, wine dinners and interactive feasts, all led by executive chef Martyn Nail and his team.
The new space plays a key role in what the hotel describes as its ongoing evolution, turning what would traditionally be back of house areas into guest-facing experiential areas.
Diners will be able to see as dishes are prepared and presented on the marble pass with the hotel creating bespoke menus for each occasion.
Made from American black walnut, the table will be separated from the kitchen by a large block of marble, which will act as a pass for the chefs. The table has soft red leather chairs and is surrounded by shelves of Nail’s favourite ingredients from around the world including spices, olive oil, rosé, pink Himalayan salt and truffle honey.
L’Epicerie will be available for breakfast, lunch and dinner with special masterclasses covering everything from how to make afternoon tea cakes and the hotel’s signature lobster wellington, to cocktails and canapés.
Private dining menus are available from £150 per diner, with interactive experiences at £350 per guest.
