Scottish chef Adam Handling has injected some serious street cred to the bluechip Belmond brand by way of his innovative menu and contemporary interior design. His restaurant with The Cadogan hotel on Sloane Street is a beacon for foodies, with a number of private dining spaces for those looking to enjoy the plush surroundings and superb food and drink offering behind closed doors.
There are two private rooms available for hire at Adam Handling’s Chelsea restaurant named Oscar and Lillie. Oscar can seat up to 14 guests and Lillie can accommodate up to 24 seated guests, though the two rooms can be combined to provide space for seated meetings, lunches or dinners of up to 50 guests. Both rooms are bright and comfortable, with large windows, mirrors and round tables. The setting is ideal for celebration lunches and dinners, and for wining and dining clients you’re looking to impress.
Cadogan’s by Adam Handling – the dedicated afternoon tea lounge – is also available for private hire and can seat up to 32 guests. The pretty crockery used for the restaurant’s afternoon tea offering matches the daintiness of the savoury bites and sweet delicacies on the plate, so if it’s a refined afternoon tea party you’re after, it’s the obvious choice.
Lastly there’s the Chef’s Table, which seats just two – truly exclusive private dining for those extra special occasions.
There are a number of menus available, from hot and cold working lunch menus containing dishes such as wild garlic risotto, Wagyu ragù, salads, sandwiches and a smoked fish platter, to tasting and set menus, and even a kids’ party selection. The set menus are seasonal, meaning in spring/summer guests can look forward to the likes of grilled octopus, roast salmon, and Eton mess to finish, while in winter options might include dishes such as game terrine, beef Wellington and salted chocolate crémeux.
