The Grill at The Dorchester has officially reopened its doors, ushering in a new chapter in the restaurant’s 88 year history.

Head chef Tom Booton presents his interpretation of a modern-day British grill, with an interior refresh and vibrant atmosphere to match. Offering a more relaxed approach to the dining experience, the legendary dining room now features a statement Pudding Bar, intimate banquette seating and a new cocktail concept – The Grill Bar at The Dorchester.

With front-row seats to the chefs in action, the dedicated Pudding Bar at The Dorchester has been designed to add an element of theatre to The Grill experience, allowing guests to enjoy their final course of delectable desserts in new surroundings at the countertop.

Those who visit the six-seater Pudding Bar can have a chat to chef Tom and indulge in one of the signature deserts.

One of London’s finest young chefs, Tom has injected a fresh energy across both the food and service with the aid of a talented brigade – all of whom are under the age of 30. Jennifer Santner has joined as general manager, Adam Nevin as sous chef and Eugenio Egorov as head sommelier.

Tom’s ever-evolving menu shines a light on British growers with dishes including homemade Stout bread served with black pudding and freshly churned butter; baby artichoke salad, foie gras snow, loaded skin and truffle; prawn scotch egg, warm tartar sauce and pickled gherkin; The Grill’s ‘Lobster Thermidor Tart’; and ribeye, beef roll, mushroom and tarragon mayonnaise.

London creatives have been selected by Tom to design the new bespoke table centre-pieces and crockery, including Peckham potter, Laura Hughes, and British designer, Richard Brendon.
