Review on The Grill at The Dorchester
The Dorchester's iconic, venerable restaurant first established in 1931 was relaunched in November 2014 with new interiors, head chef and menu. Parisian interior architect Bruno Moinard has created an elegant dining room using materials such as zinc and copper, together with traditional marble, butterscotch leather and oak parquet flooring. A stunning hand-blown Murano glass chandelier hangs from the original ceiling and pivoting wall panels swivel, creating a separate ambience as the restaurant moves from day to night.
Christophe Marleix has been appointed to take the reins of the kitchen having previously worked for the Dorchester's sister hotel in Paris, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée and more recently as an instructing chef and consultant at Alain Ducasse Education, the chefs' cookery school in Argenteuil. The new menu still retains various dishes The Grill is already famous for, such as their grill options and their signature lobster chowder, alongside new options including an extensive sweet soufflé menu, the first of its kind in London.
Open your account with coddled egg, crayfish and herb fricassée or Westcombe Cheddar Farmhouse soufflé before moving onto a main course of whole Dover sole, lemon, capers and croutons or from the land choose organic Aberdeen Angus beef tournedos, bone marrow, Yorkshire pudding and Bordelaise sauce. When it comes to desserts there's mango crumble paired with exotic fruit sorbet or choose one of their delicious soufflés made from unique ingredients from around the world. The food is matched by a serious - and seriously priced - global wine list.
