Split between a 66 cover restaurant on the first floor and an exclusive 24 cover “Chef’s Restaurant” on the second floor which provides a personalised unique dining experience which overlooks the kitchen, enabling special attention from the chefs and greater interaction with the culinary team. Kurt Says “The evolution of traditional British cuisine has been a process spread over some two thousand years.
This has been the result of successive peoples who settled here, bringing with them their own culinary traditions and novel ingredients. The ancient Romans, for example, not only introduced Britain to asparagus, celery, chives, coriander, rosemary , to name but a few , but even planted their own vineyards here. When they left, although the vineyards gradually disappeared, their dishes remained and British cooking was that much more interesting and varied for it.The absorption of these culinary novelties has not always been due to invasions or waves of immigration, but to British spreading over the world and bringing back ingredients and dishes from the diverse cultures which formed part of the former British Empire. Tea was brought from Asia, but what could now be more British than a cup of tea? Chutney and curry, both from India, are now as British as John Bull.The restaurant at Mews of Mayfair is to be a traditional British restaurant serving prime British produce transformed by history and a new modern culture”
