Yet another day in London trying to sort out wedding stuff. We were at the Dorchester hotel where our wedding reception would be held to discuss with our events manager in detail with regards to a few bits and bobs around the wedding. Our meeting finished at 2pm by which time we were desperately hungry and opted to just dine in the hotel itself. There were of course a few choices at the Dorchester but we were yet to visit the Grill since it reopened.
The most striking thing with the new Grill is of course the decor. Let’s not beat around the bush – the tartan motif which previously adorned the walls of the old Grill room was a complete eye sore. They have completely ripped that apart and the new brown/ beige/ gold tones may be more conservative but it is elegant in its own right. In the middle of the dining room hangs an impressive murano glass chandelier.
