The Henrietta Hotel, named after its Covent Garden street, is a luxury bolthole, a compact hideaway of just 18 rooms. The hotel's eponymous restaurant is run by Dabbous and focuses on modern British cuisine. Dabbous surely has his eye on more Michelin stars.
Ollie Dabbous's past successes include the Michelin-starred Dabbous restaurant, over in Bloomsbury, with a waiting list months long, and Fitzrovia's farm-to-fork restaurant, Barnyard, on Charlotte Street.
Other than the menu's subtle French notes, food is seasonal and ingredient-led, and the look and feel of the restaurant pays tribute to the ancient convent gardens of Covent Garden, which gave the area its name, with a glass-roofed atrium ceiling and generous indoor 'flora and fauna atmosphere'. The ground floor restaurant also features rich accents of oak and marble.
Cocktails come courtesy of drink historians Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller, paying homage to Covent Garden's rich history.
As for The Experimental Group, it is the international bar-superbrain behind Shoreditch's Joyeux Bordel, the ornate cocktail bar recently opened on Curtain Road. The Group also run popular experimental cocktails bars in New York, Ibiza and Paris, including Compagnie des vins Surnaturels, thriving in Paris, New York and London, at Neal's Yard, Seven Dials.
