Recently I entertained a beautiful lady to dinner at Rosewood London, after arlier on in the summer I had visited the hotel for the first time since its highly successful renovations.

As part of London Collections I had attended Duchamp and Lutwyche shows and was really impressed by the mix of old school glamour but with such a contemporary décor.

So it came as no surprise the fashion world had embraced it, its golden glows mirroring off the brass interiors is not only original but genuinely gives one a feel of The Orient, an idea I felt was a bit of a coup in central London.

Sat in their reception the goings on of a 5star International hotel were in full but gentle swing. Within in a few minutes my friend had arrived and we were escorted through the courtyard which looked its best on a hot balmy evening. It has the air of a Parisian Hotel and with a well to do group enjoying life at their outside bar, a gentle and wonderfully frivolous mood was set.

Over the last few years there has been a move to French style café restaurants in London. It’s something they do exceptionally well and I suppose the name “The Holborn Dining Room” gives us a clue. I would also say it has a slight American feel, reminding me of some lovely restaurants I visited in Chicago. So for those of you that like a good gastro pub, it’s the hotel equivalent. If you think this is disparaging, far from it as some of the best evenings and meals I have eaten have been in gastro pubs.

The food I would describe as not only tasty but predominately Anglo with a touch of French though the menu is updated regularly. To give you an idea have a look through there menu Rosewood London – Holborn Dining Room – Evening_Menu

The service was very friendly though do not expect them all to be Michelin trained. They are predominately young, friendly and international which for a relaxed dinner is perfect.

The ambience was as you might expect, a gentle buzz that was pretty much just right. Loud enough to feel the place was alive though very easy to hear what the other person was saying.

3 hours of chat from fashion, film, clients a touch of gossip through to travel and of course food, so you judge for yourself but I would say a success….
