Hans Sloane, the man who was credited for bringing cocoa and hot chocolate to the UK will be lending his name to the new restaurant opening on the Pavilion Road, from the team behind Chewton Glen, Lygon Arms, Cliveden House and 11 Cadogan Gardens.
A few minutes from both Sloane Square and Hans Place Garden (they really did like using his name, the restaurant will be serving up an all-day seasonal menu making the most of British produce and heading up the kitchen will be Adam England (Le Pont de la Tour). Start the day with the likes of eggs benedict, steak tartare and fresh-pressed juices before moving on to dishes such as duck breast, confit salmon, goats curd and cucumber and Adam’s take on the classic veal carpaccio. Finish with their signature hot chocolate or chocolate pudding, a nod to Hans of course.
Housed behind one of Pavilion Road’s mews facades, the restaurant has been designed by Goddard Littlefair. White fluted timber walls will be offset with yellow-stock brick, a pale oak parquet floor and sky light windows. Dark green banquettes and velvet chairs will sit alongside white marble and black oak topped tables, brass detailing and feature lights. The bar will seat 20 and if you’re looking to host a party then there’s a private dining room, ‘The Curio’ which will be inspired by Sloane’s love of adventure and travelling.
