Colagreco is best-known for his Mirazur restaurant in Menton, France which was voted the best restaurant in the world at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2019 but runs a string of restaurants in China, Argentina and France.
The names of the venues have yet to be announced but will comprise a fine dining restaurant, a brasserie ‘with a twist’ and a ‘private’ chef’s table.
All three experiences will ‘showcase the UK’s best organic produce sourced daily from farms, fields and shores across the country’.
Some of Colagreco dishes also be available for in-room dining, curated events and for residents of The OWO Residences by Raffles.
The partnership with Colagreco is the first to be announced by the upcoming hotel, which will have a total of 11 restaurants and bars.
The hotel will be located in the former Old War Office building, Winston Churchill’s headquarters during World War II, which has been closed to the public for more than a century.
“Chef Mauro is undoubtedly one of the world’s most recognised chefs and our partnership reaffirms London as a preeminent global dining destination. Mauro has a phenomenal reputation and we’re excited to see him bring his experience to Raffles London with concepts that are tailor-made for our well-travelled guests,” says Stephen Alden, CEO of Raffles and Orient Express.
“The culinary offering will truly be the heart and soul of the hotel, featuring unique experiences in which guests and locals will come together to celebrate, meet, entertain and delight," adds Philippe Leboeuf, managing director at Raffles London at The OWO.
