Served in the soon-to-open The Perception at W London, overlooking the buzzing streets of Soho below, the roster of emerging and established chefs will deliver an evolving menu set to shake-up the scene, pleasing the taste buds of London’s food fanatics and international gourmet travellers alike.
Kicking off the dining series is the highly-acclaimed Magnus Reid, owner of Shoreditch haunt, C.R.E.A.M and Hackney favourite, Legs, which gained a Bib Gourmand after just four months of opening. With no official cooking qualifications, his past life working in a tattoo studio and a transcontinental upbringing beginning in Australia, Reid’s dynamic background and current foothold in the east of the capital will inject a new zest into central London’s food offering, challenging the conventional codes of luxury hotel dining.
Magnus Reid said: “I’m hoping to bring a pinch of east London’s casual attitude to the unmistakably vibrant Soho, complementing the glam atmosphere of The Perception and the bustling streets surrounding the hotel. The menu will showcase my passion for quality ingredients, bold flavours and sharp plating perfectly paired with the Head Barman’s new killer cocktail menu.”
Reid’s menu for The Perception remixes Mediterranean, Australian and Modern-European flavours served as snack, small, medium or large plates creating a flexible dining experience that encourages sharing. Guests will savour twisted classics such as burrata with chilli jam and fried garlic and show- stopping larger plates like the parpadelle with crab and chilli or the impressive gilt head bream crudo.
