About Berners Tavern: Phil Carmichael, who has cooked with Jason for over ten years, is heading up the kitchen at Berners Tavern, creating a contemporary British menu. In partnership with Marriot International, The London EDITION opening marks Ian Schrager’s return to London for the first time in fifteen years.

Sample dishes include Orkney scallop carpaccio served with avocado, radish, jalapeño and lime; chargrilled quail served with Alsace bacon, smoked tomato jam, shallot and parsley; and grass-fed Baccleuch Estate cuts of beef cooked on a charcoal grill.

Berners Tavern will celebrate traditional and iconic British dishes, such as fish Friday’s with weekly specials, as well as the heralded Sunday roast with fine cuts of Red Ruby beef from the heart of Devon served with all the trimmings.

Inspired by the classic muted colours of Johannes Vermeer paintings and American artist Donald Judd, Berners Tavern has taupe coloured walls, dusty rose chairs, with a subtle play between modern and period design. Tub chairs in the front of the space create a café setting, while banquettes covered in chestnut mohair and taupe leather and round; rift-cut bleached oak tables define the central dining area. Two large custom bronze chandeliers, inspired by NYC’s Grand Central Station, scale down the original 5.5 meter (18-foot) ceilings to make the space more intimate. The walls are adorned with a series of photographic portraits, landscapes and still life, curated as if a private collection. The pewter topped bar is paired with custom leather upholstered bar stools and sits in front an illuminated, amber-backed display.

Located above Berners Tavern is the private dining room; an exclusive, intimate space which seats up to fourteen. The modern, long dark walnut table with rose upholstered chairs is placed under an original historic skylight with custom lighting, the ideal space for VIP dining. / Twitter: @EDITIONhotels / Instagram: @EDITIONhotels
