Let’s talk a little bit more about the crack team of food, drink, and service specialists at work in London’s bastion of British cuisine, The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant, on the corner of Sloane Street and Cadogan Place in Belgravia. We’ve mentioned head chef Ian Rudge already, whose previous posts include working alongside Nigel Haworth at the Michelin-starred Northcote Manor and a role as senior chef de partie at the two Michelin-starred Whatley Manor Hotel and Spa. Moreover, Rudge brings his passion for local produce sourced from specialist suppliers over into The Rib Room’s menu, where signature dishes like the prawn cocktail and Aberdeen Angus beef rib serve to salute the possibilities of British cuisine. Rudge’s creations are perfectly matched to glorious wines from around the globe by in-house sommelier Robert Toszer, a leading light in the European oenological scene. No dinner at The Rib Room would be complete without paying a visit to manager Saverio Vicari’s bar, where the award-winning mixologist will happily concoct a classic, a contemporary, or an as-yet-unknown cocktail to whet your appetite or quench your thirst.
Yet another reason that The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant garners consistent rave reviews from London’s discerning critics and diners is the superlative standards of service at this luxurious Belgravia restaurant. Knowledgeable, professional wait staff offer diners a warm welcome and a pleasurable dining experience under the guidance of award-winning restaurant manager Michele Caggianese, whose impeccable credentials include awards and stints at Galvin at Windows and the Lanesborough Hotel. This incredible team keeps The Rib Room’s main dining area buzzing, but there are also three areas available for private hire at their premises on the corner of Sloane Street and Cadogan Place. One of these includes a terrace for after-dinner cigars and all are decorated with artworks by renowned expressionist and London flaneur Feliks Topolski.
