The long-anticipated Davies and Brook, Claridge's newest restaurant, is now officially open! This spectacular new restaurant is brought to London by world-renowned chef Daniel Humm, most widely known for running the world-famous Eleven Madison Park in New York which holds three Michelin stars and was previously named #1 restaurant by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
The 'sibling' restaurant of Eleven Madison Park, Davies and Brook invites guests for an experience of casual elegance, delivering a gracious dining experience with an attitude rooted in warmth and fun.
The menu will offer contemporary dishes influenced by London’s eclectic food and cultural scene; as well as reflecting Daniel’s upbringing in Europe during which he spent a stint at Claridge’s as a 15 year old commis chef. Additionally there will be influences from his time in NYC and the rich bounty of ingredients from across the UK.
Dishes will include an array of delicacies such as crispy rice salad with citrus-marinated yellowtail with pickled white carrots, jicama and an herb pesto, the Winter Squab accompanied by bitter greens, lemongrass and crispy shallots and short rib with mint, poached endive and a mojo vinaigrette. There will also be the option of having both hot and cold oysters and the famed roasted duck dish from Eleven Madison Park will also cross the pond especially for Claridge's.
The menus for both lunch and dinner at Davies and Brook will be changing seasonally. In the restaurant there is also a delicious tasting menu, and a more speedy daily lunch menu too.
Davies and Brook will also be home to a newly created bar and lounge, under the direction of acclaimed Bar Director Pietro Collina, who worked as part of the team responsible for creating the award winning NoMad Bars. Here guests can enjoy his legendary cocktail menu, as well as a selection of casual small plate dishes including Claridge’s fried chicken, hereon known as C.F.C.
The restaurant has been re-designed by architect Brad Cloepfil, founder of Allied Works, who first collaborated with Chef Daniel on the design of Eleven Madison Park in 2017. Especially for this restaurant, bespoke furniture, textile, and lighting designs have been created and to honour the history of the original room, the design revitalises the space, removing layers, simplifying materials and colours as it opens the dining experience to the light of Davies Street and the vibrant urban fabric of London.
