Revamped May Fair Hotel eatery to offer Mediterranean small plates

May Fair Kitchen tables and chairs

May Fair Kitchen, the acclaimed restaurant in the heart of Mayfair on London’s Stratton Street at the May Fair Hotel, is to become a Mediterranean haven, offering modern small plates in a cool, contemporary interior.

Following a two-week closure, the restaurant will open on 4th May serving a fresh take on Spanish and Italian cuisine. The new May Fair Kitchen will embrace the art of shared dining with a sophisticated yet unassuming setting. Evoking an ambience to recreate the culinary delights of the Mediterranean, an exquisite selection of Spanish and Italian small plates will be showcased to complement the finest wines and cocktails.

The transformation will be overseen by Amir Jati, the former head of private dining at Nobu who recently led the relaunch of May Fair Bar.

Amir Jati, service excellence director said: “The new May Fair Kitchen is going to sit alongside the best of the area’s burgeoning food scene. Our aim is to create something beautiful, social and most importantly unique in London’s iconic district of Mayfair. The concept is simple, light, fresh, delicious food to be shared among friends and colleagues alike in London’s luxury quarter.”

Rob Steul, creative director, has redefined the space to reflect this new Mediterranean vision and delivered a relaxed open space. Floor to ceilings windows have replaced walls to make a seamless path between Lobby and May Fair Kitchen. The new space is filled with glamorous marble and copper topped tables of differing heights, two huge rustic feature tables to gather round and comfortable leather chairs to spend hours in. The dark lounge bar is an intimate and moody space for private meetings and late night cocktails.
