The Biltmore Mayfair has announced the opening of its newest restaurant, Grill 88, with reservations now open. Set to be a sophisticated new spot on historic Grosvenor Square, Grill 88 will offer guests and visitors the highest-quality steaks and seafood in an intimate setting ideal for celebrations as well as everyday relaxed dining.
The menu, designed by Executive Chef Luis Campos, celebrates the highestquality ingredients, from outstanding aged Lake District Sirloin Steaks to Japanese Wagyu, Australian cuts, and the finest Kelly and Gillardeau oysters. Every dish will be prepared with the specially-sourced Holm Oak charcoal, rich and earthy with peaty notes, that adds an underscore of sweetness to the menu.
“To me, cooking is a lifestyle. It gives you not only what you need to stay creative on a daily basis, but also something special to share with your family, friends and community” said Executive Chef Luis Campos. “When designing the menu, I looked back on my travels around the globe and aimed to bring not only some of the world’s highest-quality meat cuts, but also experimental flavours, to Grill 88 and Mayfair”.
Diners will be able to select from a variety of prime beef cuts, including grain-fed Japanese A5 Kagoshima Black Breed Ribeye Wagyu, and large cuts to share including a Full-Blood Wagyu Chateaubriand or Butcher’s Platter. For convivial celebrations and a touch of ceremony, guests can enjoy steak cooked at the table on Himalayan salt or a lava block, including a Black Pork Iberico Presa.
The restaurant’s signature cocktail list celebrates the local Mayfair neighbourhood, with specialty drinks, such as the ‘Mezcal Mews’ and ‘Grosvenor Affair’ served alongside classic cocktails.
Evoking the glamour of times-gone-by with its sleek art-deco inspired interiors, the restaurant’s ambiance is serene yet sultry. With just 32 covers, an open-plan kitchen and live cooking, Grill 88 promises personalised and intimate dining experiences. Sage green tones are complemented by cool white marble surfaces and brushed brass metalwork. The early evening sunlight flows in at dusk, thanks to large sash windows overlooking Grosvenor Square, and highlights the abstract hanging artworks by La Viola.
Grill 88 is open for dinner from Tuesdays to Sundays, from 6pm to 10.30pm.
