May Fair Kitchen to relaunch as a Mediterranean restaurant

The restaurant at London's luxury, 404-bedroom May Fair hotel is to be relaunched less than two years after it opened as the May Fair Kitchen.

Originally launched in June 2014, offering what was described as a "building blocks menu", the new-look restaurant will close for two weeks and reopen on 4 May with a Mediterranean focus.

The new May Fair Kitchen will offer a shared dining experience with small plates of Spanish and Italian cuisine.

Amir Jati, former head of private dining at Nobu and now services excellence director at the May Fair, is overseeing the transformation. He recently led the relaunch of the May Fair Bar.

"The new May Fair Kitchen is going to sit alongside the best of the area's burgeoning food scene," he said. "Our aim is to create something beautiful, social and, most importantly, unique in London's iconic district of Mayfair. The concept is simple, light, fresh, delicious food to be shared among friends and colleagues alike in London's luxury quarter."

Rob Steul, creative director of Edwardian Hotels London, the owner and operator of the hotel, has designed a light and relaxed open space for the new restaurant. Floor to ceiling windows will replace walls, with marble- and copper-topped tables of differing heights, two rustic tables for sharing and leather chairs.

May Fair Kitchen in its original form offered 19 cuts of meat, fish and seafood alongside 20 side dishes and 14 sauces or butter. It was overseen by Russ Brown, the Edwardian Group London's head of food and beverage, who has recently left the company to become food and beverage director at QHotels.
