An exciting project in conjunction with The Manhattan Loft Corporation Andre Balazs. The operation close to London’s Baker Street has opened and become an immediate destination restaurant. The restaurant is designed around a completely open kitchen that includes a purpose built live fuel grill.
Amesta Restaurant is located within The Halkin Hotel that we first designed 10 years ago for Como Holdings. Amesta is a one star Basque restaurant operated with Arzak instruction. Originating from San Sebastian in Spain the culinary team is headed by Elena Arzak who has been voted as the best female chef in the world.
Como Holdings did not hesitate to appoint GWP again to undertake this dramatic refurbishment adapting the kitchen design from the original Thai inspired cuisine to the very different demands of western high quality production.
GWP were appointed by Developers PDL, Knightsbridge to work with the International Design Team responsible for putting together this exclusive hotel. Situated in Knightsbridge, London as one might expect the hotel offers guests the ultimate luxury experience. Our brief was to work closely with the management and F & B team based at the Bulgari in Milan establishing the operational methodology for the new London venue.
This is a new venture for NOBU, following the successful opening of their first Hotel in Las Vegas as a part of the Caesars Palace estate. The Riyadh operation is to be a boutique style hotel – thought to be the first boutique operation in the Kingdom. As you might expect, Food & Beverage plays an important part of the hotel operation, including a full NOBU restaurant and funky All Day Dining offer. Banqueting is also a major design element in this property all serviced from two major kitchen installations.
