It was announced today that chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara of Make It Nice Hospitality will take the helm at Claridge’s new restaurant, Davies & Brook, set to open summer 2019.

Widely regarded as two of the world’s culinary leaders and innovators, Humm and Guidara operate Eleven Madison Park, voted No. 1 in the world by The World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2017, as well as the NoMad restaurants and bars in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and Made Nice, a fast-casual restaurant in New York City. 

The restaurant, which will be designed by Brad Cloepfil from Allied Works, who recently completed a redesign of Eleven Madison Park, will be led by executive chef Dmitri Magi, previously chef de cuisine at Eleven Madison Park. Davies & Brook will focus on “warm, inviting and engaging hospitality.” Guests of the fine dining restaurant can expect a menu “that embraces the heritage of its location with a contemporary sensibility.”

In a written release, Humm said: “Having the opportunity to bring our cuisine and hospitality to the most storied hotel in the world is really a remarkable feeling and a dream come true. But on a more personal level, this is my first time opening a restaurant in Europe, a place I left so many years ago to forge a career in America. Most people don’t know this, but I even worked at Claridge’s when I was 15 years only and it left an indelible mark on me. Claridge’s has always been a place I’ve felt connected to, so being able to come full circle Is really emotional and exciting – it feels likes coming home.”

No dates for the official opening or bookings has been announced.
