Square Meal Review of The Grill at The Dorchester ?

The Grill at the Dorchester looks a million dollars after a makeover that could have cost several times that. Thankfully, all that garish Caledonian kitsch has gone, to be replaced by ornate wall panels, Versailles-style oak parquet floors and a Murano glass chandelier the size of a small country, while the new look (and super-confident service) lends the whole place a sense of occasion that – just about – justifies scary bills. Alain Ducasse protégé Christophe Marleix doesn’t go in for high-wire culinary thrills, but his highly precise style and controlled creativity give grill-room stalwarts as chicken Caesar salad, salmon steak with béarnaise sauce, rib of beef and roast chicken that je ne sais quoi. This is comfort food of the highest order. To finish, don’t miss the exquisite soufflés (rum and raisin, for example). Wines are predictably French, classic and très cher.

    It just oozes that 1930's old school glamour we all secretly love.

    As soon as you step foot inside, displays of diamond jewellery twinkle at you behind glass cases, and in the opulent Promenade lobby you will no doubt see a flurry of ladies clad in their Christian Louboutins teetering past, and businessmen gathering amongst the marble pillars and giant floral displays.

    The decadence here is unmatched.

    Yet despite being unashamedly upper-class, The Dorchester is surprisingly very friendly and welcoming...

  1. The Dorchester Hotel is one the best known establishments in the city, not only in london, but across the world. Opening its doors in 1931 its been at the epitome of luxury both in its interior design, service and of course, food and wine. It has been a home to famous faces who treat it as their second residency and a place where royalty and politicians regularly visit. The car park outside is always full of some of the worlds most expensive super cars - a night here isn't cheap, but you do get what you're paying for, and thats the same with the food...

  1. Gone are the days of the glamour, the refinement, the elegant clientele. The wealth remains, but the class has long since dissipated. The Coupe de Champagne struggled to justify itself against the backdrop of barking Australasians and a carpet littered with ghastly ‘wheelie bags’-the unnecessarily oversized briefcase of the modern era. ‘C’ and I had arrived a little early, a consequence of our giddy excitement for the opening night of the Dorchester’s new Grill room, and found ourselves grumbling over the drunken hoards like a pair of old farts, whilst labouring to enjoy the crisp mousse of a Laurent Perrier.
