The Colony Grill Room at The Beaumont 1

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 meatloaf with Madeira sauce vie for attention with popcorn chicken and Cajun-spiced swordfish, while breakfast brings pancakes, French toast and duck egg hashes with a choice of black pudding, smoked haddock 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.

We are lucky to live in a city that has so many new restaurants to whet our appetite. The Colony Grill Room, the latest offering from Corbin and King, housed in The Beaumont, their first hotel, is one of them. I am a great fan of Fischers and The Wolseley, so I was looking forward to trying The Colony and it certainly exceeded my expectations. From the moment I walked into the elegant Art Deco inspired lobby of The Beaumont, I knew that I was in for a treat. A set of double doors leads you...

Fantastic Service

by   silver reviewer (28)

Jul 2015

We celebrated my husband's birthday last night at Colony Grill. I arrived 30 mins early to have a drink at the fantastic Art Deco style bar but it was too busy. The staff showed me to our table early so I could wait for my husband who was running late. The staff welcomed me and nothing was too much trouble. I enjoyed a margarita whilst I perused the menu and wine list, which is fantastic! The table behind me were a bit noisy so I asked to move tables, which was accommodated with no problem...

Remember Steak Diane

by   platinum reviewer (51)

Apr 2015

Colony Grill Room is Mayfair's restaurant du jour, given to us by the clever people behind The Wolesley. Colony grill room is the main restaurant in the new Beaumont hotel, so new, that my london cabbie was embarrassed not to have heard of its' existence. I have been 3 times now and I can't get enough of it, it's that x factor in a restaurant. For me it's the classic dishes done to perfection that win here... think steak Diane with unctuous red wine jus, which surprisingly I have...

Not every restaurant can be a winner

The Colony Grill is the latest venture from Corbin & King, but certainly not their best. Just as this famous restaurant duo gave us their take on the grand European café with The Wolseley, on the French brasserie with Zédel and the Austrian experience with Fischer’s, here is their interpretation of the traditional Grill Room of the 1920s. The Colony is located in the tastefully classy and discrete Beaumont Hotel in London’s Mayfair and one cannot help being impressed by both the hotel...

    There’s something just a little old fashioned about the idea of a Grill Room. At the Beaumont Hotel, the latest venture from Corbin & King, I might have thought the Colony Grill Room had been there for thirty, fourty years or more, if I didn’t know the hotel opened just last year. It’s a smart setting and an ageless style that exists in every large city in Europe and the USA. Recently in Louisville I enjoyed dinner at the English Grill, The Brown Hotel, hesitating before asking for a reservation because I wanted to try local food. In fact, it was every much a product of the USA as Proof on the Main where I dined...

    When The Colony Grill Room opened last year, it immediately went on my list of restaurants I wanted to visit. It is the latest venture from Corbin and King who run the very successful Wolseley and Delaunay restaurants. This time they have not only opened an American style old school grill restaurant, but it is also part of their first ever deluxe hotel.
    The restaurant is wood panelled, low lit and very art deco - I loved it and felt like I had been transported to Manhattan. There were also plenty of smart booths to sit in, great if you are in a small group.
    I have been drooling over the menu for over a year...

    SilverSpoon London :: The Colony Grill Room

    My family and I are big fans of Corbin and King restaurants; whether it’s schnitzel at Fischer’s, breakfast at The Wolseley or Egg’s Benedict at The Delaunay…you know you’re in safe hands with the famous duo of restauranteurs. In 2014, the partners added a hotel to their portfolio and The Beaumont is a glorious art-deco jewel located near Oxford Street, rather conveniently close to Selfridge’s. A couple of months ago I’d popped by to have a snoop around tour of the hotel and I was quite taken by the restaurant, The Colony Grill Room.

    The Critics Guide :: The Colony Grill Room

    The Colony Grill Room is tucked away inside The Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair. The d&cor is a take on the traditional grill rooms found in New York back in the 1920’s, much thought has gone into the design concept. We had the pleasure of a nice spacious leather booth, and although the restaurant is windowless it’s nicely lit. I can see the windows being missed at lunch time, but it’s part of the experience. The service was attentive, and the food certainly didn’t disappoint.
