SquareMeal Review of
The Colony Grill Room at The Beaumont
Elegance and a warm welcome come as standard at Messrs Corbin and King’s hotel grill room, which has powerful echoes of New York’s old-timers with its art-deco murals and framed photographic portraits. As one of the most successful pairings in hospitality, C&K see no reason to alter their favoured approach, so the buzz lasts all day from breakfast to midnight – although the Colony’s comfort food comes with a distinctly American twang. On the carte, chicken pot pie and macaroni cheese vie for attention with buttermilk fried chicken and Cajun-spiced swordfish, while breakfast brings pancakes, French toast and duck egg hashes with a choice of black pudding, smoked haddock, mushroom and spinach or corned beef. For dessert, bananas Foster and a baked Alaska involving pistachios and cherries are prepared tableside. Jimmy’s (aka the American Bar) makes for an appealing, low-lit stopping-off point with a fondness for bourbon and American whiskey.
