If you want to dine at one of the hottest eating spots in town, then book pronto for the Colony Grill Room at The Beaumont Hotel, the latest offering from Jeremy King and Chris Corbin. When we ate there earlier this week, we spotted Charles Saatchi holding court at one table, whilst Tom Ford and Joan Collins chatted away on another. King and Corbin have ditched their Viennese/Parisian brasserie menu that worked so well at The Woleseley and at their other restaurants: The Delaunay, Colbert and Fischer’s. Instead, the restaurant and hotel have a strong 1920s American art deco vibe, echoed in the menu with offerings such as Pastrami-on-rye, Baked Alaska, Colony Club Salad and the Colony Burger. The restaurant (and the American bar next door) have quite a grown-up, almost masculine feel with lots of dark wood and polished red leather seating but they are also warm and slick with a buzzy atmosphere. As with all of King and Corbin’s ventures, the service is impeccable (we went to another restaurant opening this week and the contrast was stark) and our evening felt like a real treat. Another hit for King and Corbin, for sure.
