London’s May Fair Kitchen Debuts its Mediterranean Makeover

This posh, re-designed hotel restaurant now serves shareable Spanish and Italian plates

The new layout features sleek, modern furnishings, and standout copper “chandeliers.”

The May Fair Kitchen unveiled its new look and new menu this month, offering modern Italian and Spanish small plates in the affluent heart of London’s Mayfair neighborhood. As the flagship eatery for The May Fair Hotel, a 5-star hotel less than a minute walk from Green Park, it’s destined to be a well-visited spot for both local diners and travelers.

Nobu alum Amir Jati and creative director Rob Steul spearhead the restaurant’s re-design, opting for an open plan with a contemporary, understated look. Varying table tops made of wood, marble, or copper, plush leather chairs and banquettes, cool gray tones, and two stunning designer “chandeliers” in copper tubing all give the space modern flair.

The Mediterranean-inspired menu features for-sharing antipasti, salads, pizzas, and meat and seafood dishes, ranges from £6 ($8.70) for small bites to £22 ($29) for larger meat and seafood plates. The menu includes homely, authentic treats such as the moreish gambas a pil pil (a Spanish shrimp dish) to more creative dishes such as the smoked lamb carpaccio with creme fraiche.

Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea.
