No word yet on whether the restaurant will simply be called "Simon Rogan at Claridge's", or something a touch more imaginative will be thought of between now and next year. The use of fresh ingredients will be a "defining factor" for the restaurant (we'd be surprised if they weren't, at this price and quality level), which will probably come in part from Rogan's own farm in Cumbria. Everything else is still unknown, down to the interior design or who will be responsible for it.
The Royal Suite
Also new at Claridge's though? A refurbished Royal Suite, with over 2400 square feet to share between just two bedrooms, dining room, and living room with grand piano. We'll have more for you on that later.
