Squaremeal Review of Hotel Chantelle ?


This upscale NYC import is a restaurant not a hotel, but from the strict 'dressy-chic' dress code (whatever that means) to the banging music, red-tinged lighting and overblown cooking, it all seems a bit wrong. The menu looks promising (if a little "over-engineered"), but the results are inconsistent: our sushi-grade tuna tartare 'cigar' arrived in soggy casing with a tasteless cucumber dip, while glorified chicken nuggets on a stick came drizzled with watery maple syrup. On the plus side, succulent grilled Ibérico pork was complemented by sweet beets and apple, and we also liked the chocolate fondant – although the peanut butter was superfluous. Drinks-wise, the cocktails are inspired and the global wine list should keep most people happy. Chantelle's transatlantic flashiness might make it popular among London's B-list celebs, but we fail to see the attraction.

How to get it so wrong

by   bronze reviewer (9)

Aug 2015

This restaurant has starters around the £18 mark and mains rising into the £30's and peaking at a steak to share at £100. The tables are comfortable yet there is a DJ which inevitably gets in the way of conversation. The place seems full of the kind of non entity celebrity types that show up in the Daily Mail or are on reality TV shows But then that is probably par for the course as the "Executive Chef" (really?) Seth Levine apparently is most recommended for his...

    Went to Hotel Chantelle for dinner with Mark Howden and his SYF – aka significantly younger fiancée. Those are his terms, not mine. She used to be the SYG (girlfriend) but during their trip to the Rockies this summer, he proposed in style and dropped a rock on her finger whilst (I am getting so British) hiking (or puffing, huffing and complaining of being tired). He called it Rock in the Rockies.
