Dine Well at May Fair Kitchen


By: Five Star Alliance

The May Fair London was first opened by King George V in 1927 and has been known as one of London's quintessential luxury hotels ever since. Part of the luxury experience here should include a visit to the May Fair Kitchen. Nestled in the heart of London's West End, the refined menu and sophisticated ambiance compliments the elegance of the luxury hotel's elegant location. 

At the May Fair Kitchen, chefs have sourced all ingredients from the farmer, fisherman, or grower who originally produced it. Every member of the staff is trained to tell diners the provenance of those ingredients. Even better, the open kitchen provides a show with dinner.
