The English Grill, a luxurious new fine dining restaurant at The Rubens at the Palace, has officially opened its doors.
Boasting a glass-walled kitchen, a signature 20-ounce steak, luxurious décor, and regal views over the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace, the restaurant is the new jewel in the crown of the recently revitalised central London neighbourhood of Victoria.
Embracing the best of English tradition, design and flavours, the elegant brassiere-style restaurant serves an exquisite menu designed around premium seasonal produce.
The highest quality ingredients are locally sourced from top English suppliers, including meats from Aubrey Allen, Royal Warrant holder to Her Majesty the Queen.
In homage to The Rubens’ rich royal history and links with traditional English high society, The English Grill delivers warm and impeccable service from tail-coated waiters, including the daily roast, which is carved tableside on a bespoke silver trolley.
The English Grill’s menu also features a selection of vegetarian and seafood dishes, as well as the spectacular 20-ounce Aubrey Allen Tomahawk Steak, which is perfect for sharing.
The 28-strong team of chefs is led by executive chef Ben Kelliher, who joins The English Grill from Butlers Restaurant at The Chesterfield Mayfair, another sister property.
Part of the five-year, multi-million pound refurbishment of the Rubens, the design of English Grill combines polished silver, luxurious fabrics and beautiful chandeliers to create a feeling of grandeur and elegance.
“With the loving restoration of this historic property now complete, The Rubens has simply never looked better,” said Malcolm Hendry, general manager of The Rubens at the Palace.
“We are very proud to launch The English Grill at a time when Victoria and the Nova complex are firmly establishing themselves as dining destinations in their own rights.
“This amazing new restaurant offers guests even more choice, bringing unrivalled glamour and the elegance of traditional English fine dining to the area.”
