SquareMeal Review of
Homage at The Waldorf Hilton
Inspired by the grand cafés that once populated Europe’s great cities, this elegant, Louis XVI-style Grand Salon pays homage with gilded columns & chandeliers hanging from a spectacular
double-height ceiling. It’s a striking setting for a theatreland meal, even if the touristy location prevents it from ever becoming one of London’s ‘in’ dining rooms. Classic, internationally
inspired cooking suits the setting, with elegant options such as Waldorf salad (of course), crab tian & Dover sole glazed with crayfish bisque in addition to a pricey grill menu of steaks,
lobster & chicken. Set menus (£22.50 for three courses) offer better value to the pre-theatre crowd. The sensuously clad, art-deco patisserie near the lobby feels less stiff, if you fancy
afternoon tea with a touch of romance, while the Homage bar is worth remembering for pre-show cocktails or a clandestine assignation at any time.
