If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Ormer Mayfair Opens in London

Submitted by on September 18, 2016 – 8:41 amNo Comment

england_london_ormer-mayfairChef Shaun Rankin’s newest restaurant Ormer Mayfair opens Tuesday (September 20, 2016) in the Flemings Mayfair Hotel, 7-12 Half Moon Street, Mayfair, London, England.

Remaining true to his conviction that sustainably-sourced, locally foraged and seasonal produce is absolute – an ethos that earned his original, Jersey-based Ormer a Michelin star – Shaun’s Ormer Mayfair menu includes British fare that is simply prepared and cooked to perfection.

It’ll be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a range of menu options including a vegetarian and vegan section plus an eight-course tasting menu.

Ormer Mayfair’s sommelier Andreas Rosendal has previously curated the wine lists at Brasserie Chavot, Restaurant Sat Bains and The Greenhouse.

Make time before or after your meal to slip away to Manetta’s bar, hidden at the far end of the restaurant. Reviving the name of the original hang-out at Flemings back in the 1930s, the reinvented bar recaptures the surreptitious spirit of a place where spies used to swap secrets and clandestine trysts took place.

The quintessentially British, 1930’s-inspired space designed by Tony Filmer (also responsible for refreshing Flemings’ 129 guest rooms and suites) is awash with understated glamour and artistry. Look for aged oak wood panelling, Carrara and Nero Marquina geometrical, monochrome marble floors, forest green velvet banquettes threaded with gold and British racing green distressed leather chairs.

The 85-cover restaurant is part of a £15 million refurbishment of Flemings Mayfair: the historical boutique hotel that dates back to 1851. One of the oldest family-owned hotels in London, Flemings was originally converted from 13 Georgian townhouses. Part of Small Luxury Hotels Of The World Limited, the hotel offers luxury accommodation near Green Park and Piccadilly Circus, and a short walk from Buckingham Palace.

Chef Shaun Rankin will continue to run his Michelin star restaurant Ormer Jersey alongside Ormer Mayfair.
