The Biltmore Mayfair Hotel has announced the opening of its newest dining venue, Grill 88, with reservations now open. Set to be a dining highlight on the historic Grosvenor Square, Grill 88 will offer guests and visitors premium-quality steaks and seafood in an intimate setting, ideal for everyday relaxed yet sophisticated dining.
The menu, designed by Executive Chef Luis Campos, features the highest-quality meats, from aged Lake District Sirloin Steaks to Japanese Wagyu, Australian cuts, and the finest Kelly and Gillardeau oysters. Every dish is prepared with specially-sourced Holm Oak charcoal, rich and earthy with peaty notes.
“To me, cooking is a lifestyle. It gives you not only what you need to stay creative on a daily basis, but also something special to share with your family, friends and community” said Executive Chef Luis Campos. “When designing the menu, I looked back on my travels around the globe and aimed to bring not only some of the world’s highest-quality meat cuts, but also experimental flavours, to Grill 88 and Mayfair.”
Diners will be able to select from a variety of prime beef cuts – such as the grain-fed Japanese A5 Kagoshima Black Breed Ribeye Wagyu – as well as large cuts to share – such as the Full-Blood Wagyu Chateaubriand or Butcher’s Platter. For convivial celebrations and a touch of ceremony, guests can enjoy steak cooked at the table on Himalayan salt or a lava block, including a Black Pork Iberico Presa.
Evoking the glamour of times gone by with its sleek art-deco-inspired interiors, the restaurant’s ambience is serene yet sultry. With just 32 covers, an open-plan kitchen and live cooking, Grill 88 promises personalised and intimate dining experiences.
Sage green tones are complemented by cool white marble surfaces and brushed brass metalwork. The early evening sunlight flows in at dusk, thanks to large sash windows overlooking Grosvenor Square, and highlights the abstract hanging artworks by La Viola.
