Savoy Grill, is without doubt one of London's legendary restaurants. Frequented by celebrated diners such as Sir Winston Churchill, Oscar Wilde, Frank Sinatra and HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, the original seating plan has been brought back for the reopening. Designer, Russell Sage, took inspiration from the restaurant's heyday and original 1920s Art Deco features have been restored. Chef Patron Stuart Gillies, of Gordon Ramsay Holdings, and Head Chef Andy Cook, oversee a menu that returns to the classic Escoffier-inspired grill rooms of old. Dishes include charcoal grilled Chateaubriand with pommes souffl?s, king crab and prawn cocktail, lime and chocolate souffl? and iced Peach Melba.The American Bar has long been one of London's favourite meeting spots and is one of the most iconic cocktail bars in the world. It was home to legendary bartenders such as Ada Coley' Coleman and Harry Craddock, who wrote The Savoy Cocktail book (still regarded 80 years later as the bartenders' bible). Daniel Baernreuther, the new American Bar Manager, is joined by an award-winning team of bartenders including Head Bartender, Erik Lorincz (Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year 2010) and Stefano Cossio (winner of the UKBG Akvinta National Cocktail Competition). Together they have created a cocktail list that includes both classic cocktails with a twist, new creations and tribute cocktails, such as The Savoy Daisy, inspired by past American Bar Managers. Completing the vibrant ambience and timeless elegance, the bar features a live pianist seven days a week, playing American Jazz.
