A modern live-fire grill opens in Mayfair
COMO Metropolitan London has launched Gridiron by COMO, a modern live-fire grill on Old Park Lane. In a unique collaboration with leading British chef Richard Turner, the restaurant combines Turner’s expertise in open flame cooking and ethical sourcing with COMO’s warm, sincere hospitality and history in destination-defining restaurants.
Gridiron by COMO pays homage to the ancient art of grilling with its open kitchen format. The exposed grill, feature bar and countertop dining add to the spontaneity of service, offering a sensorial experience of smoke, fire and interactivity.
The hearty menu celebrates in-season, ethically-sourced ingredients with meat, native fish and beautiful vegetables given equal attention. Fire-cooked specialities to be shared or enjoyed individually include grilled squid with roast cod and girolles, lemon and parsley, fire-baked pumpkin, pickled walnuts and buttermilk, Barnsley Hillside hogget chop, and rare-breed Sirloin on the bone. Finely sourced charcuterie are on the menu, as well as comely English deserts such as honey tart and pumpkin ice cream with pistachio candy.
Old world grapes dominate Gridiron by COMO’s beverage list, curated by Fiona Beckett with Gridiron’s smoky flavours in mind. Max and Noel Venning, brothers and award-winning mixologists, have created light and refreshing drinks to complement the depth of flavours and warmth of the design by leading interior design firm Macaulay Sinclair.
