Strand Palace Launch New Art Deco Inspired Haxells Restaurant & Bar
The launch of Haxells, the brand-new art deco restaurant and bar at Strand Palace, marks a new era in dining for one of London’s most iconic hotels. The 240 cover restaurant is an all-day dining affair, serving guests breakfast, lunch and dinner – with a quintessential afternoon tearoom and private dining room.
New Executive Chef, Chef Alfonso Salvaggio whose résumé includes roles at Radisson Blu London and Crowne Plaza Dubai has carefully curated a brand-new menu, with an emphasis on sourcing top quality ingredients.
The menu will showcase modern British cuisine dishes, including sharing platters of British charcuterie and cheeseboards. There is a wide variety of mains, featuring Grilled Marinated Tuna, Superfood Salad, Asparagus Risotto, to well-known British classics such as Beer Battered Fish & Chips, Shepherd’s Pie and Sticky Toffee Pudding.
The extensive ground floor concept was designed by Trevillion Interiors. Haxells is beautifully decorated and heavily inspired by the hotel’s roaring twenties design, combining art deco glitz and gilded age elegance with a contemporary twist. The private dining room, set in a beautiful hue of blue provides the perfect space for private functions and can fit 40 guests seated or 60 standing.
The elegant new bar is the perfect spot to catch up with friends and colleagues. The drinks menu is ideal for wine connoisseurs to cocktail aficionados – new serves include the Spicy Vanilla Sidecar, Black Forest Mojito and Lychee Spritz.
The Haxells Restaurant & Bar launch has been overseen by the new Director of Food & Beverage, Eirini Papadopoulou. Eirini’s wealth of international food and beverage experience spans over 15 years, which has seen her working on brands across the UK, Greece and Australia.
Eirini Papadopoulou, Director of Food & Beverage at Strand Palace said:
“It is an exciting time to have joined Strand Palace. It is my goal to provide an unforgettable experience of service to all guests dining at Haxells and build a reputation for excellence in the hospitality sector.”
David MacRae, Managing Director of Strand Palace said:
“Haxells has something for everyone. The menu is full of creative modern dishes, served within a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere. You can dine with colleagues, enjoy afternoon tea with family or enjoy small nibbles with friends whilst at the bar. London has one of the most diverse food and beverage offerings in the world and it is important to innovate, yet be consistent in standards of service and the quality of the offering. 2019 marks a new era for the hotel and we are excited to introduce Haxells to our guests, old and new.”
