The second, highly-anticipated restaurant from chef Marcus Wareing has finally made its debut, serving up classic British fare in an uniquely opulent setting. Until now, protégé of celeb chef Gordon Ramsey Marcus Wareing has been focusing all attention on his Michelin-starred eponymous restaurant in the Berkeley Hotel. For The Gilbert Scott, Wareing enlisted the help of David Collins Studio (The Connaught, The Wolseley) to restore the cavernous space (located in the newly remodeled St Pancras Renaissance Hotel,) to a modern version of its original Victorian Gothic glamour. That translates to lots of red, lots of crystal, lots of light fixtures and an overall aesthetic that revels in transporting diners to another era, the era of the space’s original architect for which the restaurant is named, the famed sir George Gilbert Scott.
The insanely high-ceilinged Gilbert Scott features a beautiful bar area, formal dining room, private dining room for up to 12 guests and a super private kitchen-side table for 10 dubbed (naturally) The Kitchen Table. At £600 for four courses or seven courses for £800, guests can watch the chefs in action, sequestered from sight of other diners by a wall of wine bottles.
In honor of this weekend’s Bank Holiday, join The Gilbert Scott for a preview of their new cocktail afternoon tea, Taking Tea with George, and enjoy tea-based cocktails and old-fashioned delicacies such as the charmingly named Mrs. Beeton’s cheese butterflies.
