This is pretty big news, The Stafford London has announced that it will be launching its first independent restaurant project this year. Following the opening of The Game Bird back in 2017 and the relaunch of the American Bar last year, the new restaurant, in a first, will not be housed within the hotel. Instead, the restaurant will be opening on the foodie Charlotte Street but The Stafford’s Culinary Director, Ben Tish will still be at the helm.
The restaurant, Norma, will be inspired by the food and culture of Sicily with a particular emphasis on the Moorish influences on the island’s cuisine. Emulating the grand café culture found in Sicily, the restaurant will be all about that old-school Italian hospitality, flair and charm but with a contemporary vibe.
