the eleven madison park team is coming to claridge’s

There have been rumours about Eleven Madison Park hopping across the pond from NYC for months and now it’s been confirmed that chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara are taking over the space at Claridge’s left by Fera. Given that Eleven Madison Park holds three Michelin stars and topped the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list in 2017, this is massive news.

The restaurant will be called Davies and Brook (after the streets that the hotel sits on) and whilst it’ll be a fine dining affair, don’t expect extravagant, long tasting menus. And it’s definitely not going to be a carbon copy of EMP even though chef de cuisine Dmitri Magi is coming over to lead the kitchen.

Humm is a big fan of Claridge’s, having worked in the hotel as a teenager, and he seems keen to honour its heritage with this restaurant. Given that the NoMad Hotel, that Humm and Guidara also run the restaurants for, is due to come to London we wonder what this will mean for the food concept there.
