The restaurant Athanaeum is situated in the hotel of the same name, overlooking Green Park in the heart of Central London. The decadence, splendour and grace of the hotel is reflected in the restaurant, where an 'Essentially English' dining experience is offered. This doesn't mean a fry up and strong tea in chipped mugs; this is something altogether more refined, think more Pride and Prejudice than Eastenders - classic British dishes given a thorough makeover and served in extremely opulent surroundings.
Not to be missed at Athenaeum is the Laduree afternoon tea, which is the only London-based location where one can enjoy this most refined of Parisian pastimes. Simply relax in the sumptuous surroundings while enjoying fine patisseries, macaroons, tea infusions, scones, finger sandwiches, Laduree House Champagnes and faultlessly attentive service.
Whether enjoying lunch or dinner, the Athenaeum restaurant will leave you impressed with what it has to offer. This 'Best of British' stance serves the restaurant well, enabling it to source the freshest seasonal and organic produce, with local vegetables, pork, beef and lamb on the menu. Sunday lunch is not to be missed, where a beautifully tender roast beef is accompanied by fluffy Yorkshire puddings and masses of sides that will leave even the hungriest of guests struggling to clear their plate.
With over 250 whiskies, beautifully creative cocktails and some of the finest old and new world wines available, the bar and drinks menu at Athenaeum is as impressive as the plush decor, the gorgeous food and the faultless staff. Whether wooing a loved one, impressing business clients or simply treating friends and family, your experience of dining at the Athenaeum restaurant is sure to be a memorable one.
