About The Betterment
OPENS SUMMER 2019
This glamorous hotel restaurant marks a return to Grosvenor Square for Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, who first rose to fame launching Gordon Ramsay’s Maze on the square in 2005.
The all-day restaurant is part of The Biltmore Mayfair hotel, the first European property within the LXR Hotels & Resorts collection. The kitchen is headed up by Atherton’s long-time colleague Paul Walsh, who launched City Social with Atherton back in 2014, and led the kitchen to gain a Michelin star less than a year after it opened.
Expect seasonally inspired cooking, including meat and fish dishes prepared on the rustic wood-fired grill that takes up the centre of the space, bringing the kitchen into the main dining room and adding a sense of theatre.
Elsewhere on the menu, there are fresh seafood dishes, signature salads and plant-based options for vegan diners. Cosy banquettes, glass-panelled walls and ornate finishes, meanwhile, live up to the chic opulence of Atherton’s other restaurants. The chef is also responsible for the food and drink offering at the hotel’s Terrace and Tea Lounge, as well as its Pine Bar.
Atherton might be best known for his Social restaurants (Pollen Street Social, City Social, Social Eating House) but is no stranger to hotel dining, with Berners Tavern at the London Edition and the Clocktower at the New York Edition part of his global portfolio. Mayfair is hardly short of hotel restaurants from big-name chefs, but Atherton's knowledge of the local scene is likely to make it into a smash hit.
