The Holborn Dining Room — London, UK
The launch of Rosewood’s 306-room London hotel, in a grand Grade II-listed Edwardian building, is now complete with the arrival of its restaurant, the Holborn Dining Room & Delicatessen. The handsome street-side bistro - run by restaurateur Des McDonald - has been restored and converted by designer Martin Brudnizki to feature impressive chandeliers, reclaimed-oak furnishings and plush leather banquettes, offsetting the building’s original marble details. The menu offers a thoughtfully prepared British feast with traditional dishes such as ham hock terrine, steak with Camden Ink suet pudding and steamed jam sponge for dessert. Adjoining the brasserie is the delicatessen, which opens directly onto High Holborn and sells an assortment of quick bites for those on the move.
