Percy & Founders, the restaurant from former Murano head chef Diego Cardoso, has launched a private dining room named Percy's Den.
With capacity for 24 seated and 35 standing, the Den opened on Tuesday 4 August and features 12 handmade tables in contrasting colours, which can be arranged into a variety of configurations to host anything from a banquet to a drinks reception.
The restaurant will offer event-specific, seasonally-changing menus from £35 per person, with dishes such as rabbit terrine with pickled girolles and mustard crème fraiche; Goosnargh duck breast with watercress, cauliflower and granola; and peanut butter parfait with fresh cherries. There is also a £20 per person breakfast menu with filled bagels, savoury muffins and granola, designed for business meetings.
Interior features include a floor-to-ceiling wooden and glass bar, with a pull-put drinks trolley with bar staff able to make cocktails on request. There is also adjustable lighting, a hidden 60-inch full HD LED television, Apple TV for AirPlaying presentations, a Mac Mini with wireless keyboard and mouse, and a standalone Bose surround sound system to either play guests' own music or the music from the rest of the restaurant.
The design also features one-off printed wallpaper panels from American artist Michael Waraksa, and a monochrome ceiling pattern mirroring the upstairs entrance marble floor.
Located on the corner of Mortimer Street and Berners Street, in the Fitzroy Place development on the site of the old Middlesex Hospital, Percy & Founders is a 200-cover venue, with a 24-cover terrace. It is operated by Open House, the sister company to Cubitt House.
The name was inspired by the Duke of Northumberland, Hugh Percy, and the group of philanthropists who founded the Middlesex Hospital in 1755.
