Shoreditch hotel The Curtain is no more. It's just been taken over by Accor - and they're going to relaunch it as Mondrian Shoreditch.
The previous hotel was a complete new-build so, decor aside, we can't see any major structural changes happening but it does mean that the hotel restaurant will change - so Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster has left the building and they've brought in Spanish chef Dani Garcia to set up the restaurant here.
Garcia had three Michelin stars at his eponymous Dani Garcia restaurant in Marbella, which closed in 2019 but he still runs BIBO restaurants in Marbella, Madrid, Tarifa, Doha and Málaga. London will be the fifth.
It's billed as a brasserie and tapas bar with dishes including:
- Oxtail Brioche, a pulled oxtail brioche with thin mushroom slices, DG sauce and rocket
- Russian Salad with Quail Eggs - potato, extra virgin olive oil mayo, tuna belly, fried quail eggs and garlic chips
- Freshly Made Guacamole, tableside in a molcajete mortar, with avocado, green peas, broken-up burrata, mint and nachos
They'll also be bringing in the rooftop lounge, The Rumpus Room - previously seen in Sea Containers overlooking the Thames (which used to be a Mondrian but now is now privately owned) so we'll add news on that as soon as we get it.
