I was invited to attend JW Marriott Grosvenor House London food safari as part of a press event and my food was complimentary. I was not paid to attend and was not under contractual obligation to write this blog post or create content on any platform.
I remember about eight years ago attending a grand charity dinner at a London hotel… row upon row of beautifully decorated tables in the grandest ballroom I’d ever seen in my life! Fast forward to now and I was invited back to the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London, the biggest and and one of the grandest hotels in London! With memories of the grandeur of that epic ballroom, I knew I was in for a treat we would be experiencing a food safari, sampling the different restaurants around the hotel. I’ve even visited their cellars in the Champagne region. I already knew about the association of the champagne with the arts and about the gorgeous bottle design but one thing I didn’t know was Oscar Wilde’s fondness for the champagne … he even ordered cases to his prison cell!Rüya London. Restauranteur Unut Ozkanca’s drew inspiration from his heritage in Istanbul for the menu at his original Rüya in Dubai which features dishes from the Anatolian region – the concept is mimicked here with Chef Patron Colin Clague, who has also worked at Jean Georges, Zuma and Rüya Dubai, at the helm
Hungry for main course? It was time for our next stop. Corrigan’s Mayfair has been highly regarded on the London scene for years with multi-Michelin starred Irish chef Richard Corrigan running the show. The elegant blue dining room is the perfect place for a quintessential British menu that champions seasonal produce. Meat and fish are the star here but I couldn’t resist a spinach and truffle tagliatelle plus their fantastic bread with lots of butter.
However, the course we’d been most excitedly anticipating was the dessert and the promise of the famous JW Cheesecake!The JW Steakhouse is the hotel’s signature steak restaurant but perfect meat (from the very finest American suppliers) and delicious seafood aren’t all the place is known for. That cheesecake has grown rather a cult status but the other desserts shouldn’t be forgotten either … nor should the Bourbon bar which has the largest selection in London with over 160 rare, pre prohibition, single barrel and small batch Bourbons and very own Jim Beam Single Barrel.
But our wonderful day at Grosvenor House wasn’t over yet as we were led up to one of the top suites for a history lesson of the hotel. With 496 rooms, it’s clear to see why this is the most sizeable hotel in London plus the fantastic Mayfair location has made it a favourite of celebrities and royalty for the last 90 years. One of the hotel’s most notable historical facts is that the hotel’s Great Room was once a ice-rink and it was here that the young Queen Elizabeth II learnt to skate.
If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I can’t think of anything better than a day exploring a beautiful hotel AND eating too! A huge thank you to Grosvenor House for having me for such a fun experience!
