Tom Kerridge has announced plans to open his first London restaurant situated on the ground floor of the Corinthia Hotel in Westminster. The current restaurant within the hotel will close in June for the transition to take place with luxury interior design specialists in charge of converting the space into a relaxed British brasserie-style restaurant by Tom Kerridge.
After planning to launch his debut London restaurant at The Rib Room at Jumeirah Carlton Tower last year, Kerridge has had to alter his plans which means that we will now see him open at a different venue. Thomas Kichs, Corinthia’s hotel managing director explained that they have been looking to provide their guests with the true British hospitality experience. Speaking on why he thought Tom was the ideal fit to achieve this: “When we met Tom, we knew he was the perfect partner to open a restaurant together. We admire his approach to food, restaurants and his spirit of hospitality. I am confident that together we will create an incredible dining experience.”
The news comes only a few months after Tom’s most recent opening, The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow, opened in November. His impressive portfolio also contains the Michelin-starred pub, The Coach and the two-Michelin starred restaurant, The Hand and Flowers.
