Celebrated chef Shaun Rankin and Flemings Mayfair are delighted to reveal further exciting details about the Michelin-starred chef’s much anticipated restaurant opening at the boutique hotel later this year.
The name of the sophisticated 85-cover restaurant will be Ormer Mayfair – which Rankin will run alongside his famous Ormer establishment in Jersey – and will take inspiration from the St Helier shores, introducing it to the heart of London with a distinctive Mayfair twist, befitting its new luxury location.
Opening its doors with Rankin at the helm on 14th September 2016, Ormer Mayfair will be a true celebration of British heritage, seamlessly drawing together the freshness of foraged herbs, English wines and seasonal produce from land and sea with the history of the iconic Mayfair hotel in which it is set.
Crisp English sparkling wines will accompany light and refreshing dishes such as hand-dived scallops fresh from the Channel Islands or Jersey lobster ravioli in a crab and lemongrass bisque. Deep reds will pair tender meat dishes including venison loin with medjool dates, quinoa, parsnips and chocolate tortellini and sweet cravings satisfied with decadent desserts like the double chocolate brownie with salt caramel and milk ice cream.
Part of a £14million refurbishment at the boutique hotel, interior designers Tully Filmer will create a beautifully intimate dining space for Ormer Mayfair guests. Dark wood panelling and British racing green leather and velvet banquette seating will be complimented with delicate bronze highlights, creating an Art Deco-inspired space awash with 1930’s glamour and artistry.
Two private dining rooms that seat up to 20 guests will also provide the perfect hideaways for special and intimate occasions and the restaurant’s own entrance on Clarges Street to follow later in the autumn will ensure it’s a stand-alone destination restaurant in its own right.
Impeccable service in a relaxed environment and the freshest of ingredients from a Michelin-starred chef will provide the ultimate affordable luxury dining experience in the heart of London’s Mayfair.
More details about this hotly anticipated autumn opening – and the adjoining 40-cover bar – will be revealed soon.
