HOTEL CHANTELLE PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN APRIL 2016
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.
Signature dinner dishes include Waffle-Crusted Fried Chicken With Maple Syrup Cotton Candy and a Tuna Tartare Cigar served in a vintage glass ashtray. So you can be assured unique food pairings and an innovative take on New York classics will keep your experiences new and surprising time and time again. The weekend brunch menu is equally creative, with highlights including Frosted Flake-Encrusted Stuffed French Toast, Lobster Benedict, Steak & Eggs, and a Baked Alaska Waffle, accompanied by live jazz performances every Saturday and Sunday, curated by jazz maestro Dandy Wellington...

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.
