The menu will be inspired by the seasons and the finest fresh ingredients, with specialities such as melon soup with shrimp and lemongrass, homemade duck and foie gras rillette, and chicken tagine with saffron cauliflower and green olives all making an appearance. Diners to the restaurant can expect an art deco design them throughout the venue, with a stunning mirrored ceiling set to be one of the aesthetic highlights.
The restaurant is set to open in September this year, with chef Daniel Boulud revealing he is looking forward to team up with the hotel brand, saying: “They share in our passion for excellence in both hospitality and cuisine, and we look forward to providing an extraordinary experience to their guests.”
