How to improve a dining scene that’s already red-hot? Add another Marcus Wareing restaurant to the mix. The acclaimed chef is getting ready to open The Gilbert Scott at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, and London foodies are chomping at the bit to check it out. After a dramatic $244 million renovation, the old railway station hotel—a Victorian landmark in red brick—has been restored to its former glory and on May 5 it will have a restaurant to match its gorgeous new interiors. Marcus Wareing’s second resto is in fact a tribute to the historic location; the British brasserie is named for the building’s original architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, and will be designed by the David Collins Studio with subtle references to the world’s grand train stations. A word about the food from the official website:
...Celebrating the quality array of British produce available today. Expect to see Dorset Jugged Steak (braised featherblade with port, pork dumplings and redcurrant), Tweed Kettle (sea trout with a lemon, nutmeg and herb crust) and Water pudding (a creamy, soft, lemon treat).
There will be both a private dining room and a kitchen table open for 10 guests. The Gilbert Scott will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now taking reservations online.
