The ground floor Grand Café, is a gorgeous space with floods of natural light, cast steel columns and Victorian archways. It serves an all-day modern European menu of German classics. Signature dishes include Beef goulash soup with bell peppers, sour cream and paprika and Pickled Bismarck herring with onion, apple and Vollkornbrot. There is also a choice of German sausages such as Nürnberger Rostbratwurst or smoked Schinkenknacker, served with sauerkraut and potato purée or pommes frites.
The patisserie counter sells freshly baked breads and pastries including Sour cherry and pistachio buns or Berlin Doughnuts with jam, all available to take away. When the bespoke Smiths of Derby clock strikes 4, a chime will sound signalling the beginning of the quintessentially German tradition of Kaffee und Kuchen. Guests are offered cakes and pastries from the patisserie display, such as apple strudel with vanilla sauce and Sachertorte with Chantilly cream.
Already the stomping ground of London’s socialites and the elite, the restaurant opens in the evening offering glamour and style. This menu, in keeping with the traditional cuisine offeres beautifully crafted plates of German classics such as Truffled beef broth liver dumplings, shaved black truffles and Tafelspitz; slow cooked beef rump, rösti, wilted spinach, beef broth, chive sauce, grated horseradish and apple.
