It was the third day for Luxury Week London and I had just come from an outdoor catwalk. To top it off I had a selfie with David Gandy not a bad way to start the morning. I was invited to experience the uniquely named ‘Spatisserie’, an opulent, but intimate space for light lunches and luxury afternoon teas, exclusive to The Dorchester Spa in Mayfair. I have not been here for awhile and forgot how amazing it was whilst entering. In today’s world you don’t have to be intimidated by the word luxury or such places like the Dorchester. The decor and fresh flowers were amazing and worth exploring another time. The Spatisserie is a luxurious yet informal dining space, open to both restaurant goers and spa appointment clients. Now coming from a catwalk the dress code on this occasion, ranges from normal day wear to dressing robes. We were only experiencing champagne and lunch, so no dress code changes required. I was hosting a very top client and he was well impressed when walking in to the Spatisserie.
Spatisserie Spa Dining
When entering you must look at the 72,000 pearl chandelier. I am a pearl lover so I was blown away with this. Don’t worry as they only book three tables at a time so the exclusive eating decor is catered for the very few. So make sure you book in advanced. The setting is very much like a princess going in to her private den. My male colleague was more than happy to be the only guy seated. The flowers and decor are very old school but I liked it. Just think rose and lots of pale pink. Now guys this would be a great gift for your girlfriend, sister, mum or grandmother. But hey in 2016 where male grooming is bigger than ever there is no reason why you can’t pamper yourself along with your mates.
My male companion went for their new Bento Box concept which was called Vitality Bento. Within the box was Banana, blueberry and avacado smoothie with flax seeds. It had tomato soup, teamed with a seeded roll, then a beef chili cashew and honey stirfry, to finish it off with a fruit platter with seeded chocolate energy bites. It came in a box which was a nice surprise once you opened it. The food was fresh it took awhile to come out but you’re not here to rush off, that is the whole idea. It is a great place to enjoy and reflect on life.
I chose a beef fillet with boiled new potatoes and pepper sauce. It was really yummy and the whole eating experience was just great. We drank the Laurent Perrier Brut 1812 champagne. This is a perfect place to host a good friend or someone your really value or in my case someone who I want to get to know more and do business with. It was the perfect getaway from the hectic life such as a city like London. Or if you have had a hard day shopping what a better way to chill. I would make sure you make time for this as it is a lovely experience.
