Squaremeal Review of Holborn Dining Room ?

Boasting an all-day menu that stretches from filling hot breakfasts to late-night suppers, this versatile brasserie within the smart Rosewood London receives generous praise for "amazing ambience, very good food and great service". The grand, marble-pillared room previously housed the underwriters at Pearl Assurance, and Martin Brudnizki's makeover captures that sense of heritage with a clubby look both traditional and on-trend: warm russet leather, reclaimed oak, antique mirrors and plenty of cosy booths. Recent highlights from a crowd-pleasing menu included a juicy shrimp burger lifted with zesty jalapeño tartare, rich short-rib cottage pie and indulgent sticky toffee pudding, all preceded by exemplary White Negronis. Elsewhere, you'll find classic seafood dishes, steaks and burgers, and 
a decent wine list to boot.

    TRUsocial :: TRUsocial: Playing Safe at Holborn Dining Room!

    Sometimes I wonder how much my gluttonous cravings will get me into trouble, as the waistband increases, weekday bedtimes are pushed past a reasonable hour too often, and the bank balance teeters rather precariously between zero and minus sums. I am not at all helped either, by my natural propensity to say "yes" to almost anything socially adventurous, except of course, all things I unequivocally know would evoke anger, irrational fear and/or imminent displeasure (bungee jumping, eating insects, or visiting Benidorm, for example). I remember a time when all my spare pennies sank into a feckless pit of handbags, shoes,...

    Her Favourite Food :: Her Favourite Food: The Holborn Dining Room at Christmas

    Diners cannot ask for a more festive location for a Christmas meal than the Holborn Dining Room. Located in the beautiful five-star Rosewood Hotel the entire exterior is lined with twinkling fairy lights and gleaming red decorations, along with a gorgeous large traditional Christmas tree placed in the central archway. Walking past the hotel the dining room looks cosy and elegant and I couldn’t wait to get inside!

    The restaurant itself is a beautiful slick space composed of plush red leather upholstery, polished marble floors, reclaimed oak, antique mirrors and two patina copper-topped bars. Topped off with...

    Holborn Dining Room opened about a year ago and makes for a welcome addition to the London dining room. Located in the glorious Rosewood Hotel (which was once Pearl Restaurant by Jun Tanaka), it is a bustling restaurant with the look of a grand brasserie.

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London - A luxury lifestyle blog : Getting Meaty at the Holborn Dining Room

    I've often mentioned on my blog that I'm not a big meat eater, I'm more of a salmon or SushiSpoon than a SteakSpoon. But when I was invited to a steak testing at one of my bucket list restaurants with the opportunity for a kitchen tour and the chance to meet the chef, I couldn't say no despite my lack of carnivorous preferences.

    Today I would be ticking Holborn Dining Room off my bucket list....
