London’s five-star Landmark Hotel will launch its new restaurant and bar next week after a million pound refurbishment.
Twotwentytwo Restaurant and Bar will launch next Tuesday (May 5), after a complete renovation. The new restaurant replaces the Cellar Bar of the 300-room Grade II Listed hotel.
The eatery seats 85 and is open for drinks, lunch and dinner during the week from 11.30am until 11pm. The modern European menu offers starters including wild mushroom and tarragon soup (£5.50) and chicken liver parfait with toasted sourdough bread (£7.50), and mains including open tart of wild mushrooms and goats cheese, home dried tomato, mizuna and dandelion (£12) and pan fried fillet of seabass served with a fennel, watercress and orange salad (£17). There’s also a grill section and guests can design their own sharing platter choosing three options from several dishes (£12). The bar offers an extensive wine list and signature cocktails.
The new restaurant has been sympathetically refurbished with a mix of the traditional and modern. The original wood panelling and antique fireplaces remain, while an eleven metre-long Chesterfield-style sofa takes pride of place in front of the large windows. Another quirk – and a reference to the hotel’s history of horse-drawn carriages dropping off guests – is the life-size black horse lamp by Mooi, which stands by the entrance.
A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the Landmark is also nearing completion of the refurbishment of its top nine suites (including its presidential suite), due to be unveiled by the end of May.
Guests staying in the new lifestyle suites will be treated to a VIP package (from £1,000), including a private bar, laundry and dry cleaning, English breakfast at the hotel’s iconic Winter Garden, free entry to the spa and health club, and free internet access and fresh fruit every day.
The Landmark Hotel is located on Marylebone Road directly opposite Marylebone Station, and around the corner from Regent’s Park and Baker Street tube station.
