Last week, we noted that the Dorchester, 45 Park Lane and the Four Seasons Park Lane had all earned Forbes' Travel Guide's London Star Awards. The other honorees are the Savoy, the Lanesborough and Claridge's.

This marks the first hotel ratings in Europe for Forbes Travel Guide, which has anonymously inspected and rated hotels, restaurants and spas since the company’s founding in 1958 as Mobil Travel Guide.

Speaking of the Savoy, we hear that the Savoy has announced two new concepts for this month, including the introduction of a new restaurant, Kaspar’s Seafood Bar & Grill, and a partnership with the Savoy Pier, a private pier where several luxury river yachts are available for private events and tours on the Thames. 

Kaspar's, which opens today, will have all-day dining with a seafood bar that displays shellfish, cured and smoked fish. Starters include a smoked brown shrimp and eel cocktail or a roasted ox tail consomme, while the main dishes include smoked salmon sausage with apple sauerkraut and a Dover sole with brown butter caper sauce. 

Also recently introduced is The Savoy Suite Welcome, which includes butler service, private car transfers, in-room bar, wi-fi and the pressing of one garment per guest for those staying in one-bedroom suites and above.
