The Stafford London
With three very distinct buildings, this refined property offers something for everyone: the main house, fresh from a renovation, features tastefully appointed rooms with a traditional decor; rooms in the Carriage House have a country flair; and Stafford Mews houses modern suites that sprawl over seemingly endless square feet. There’s also plenty of choice at the newly launched Lyttelton restaurant, which focuses on rustic, British cuisine, such as summer truffle pappardelle and wild sea bass with heirloom tomatoes. At the American bar, more than 3,000 memorabilia items (knick-knacks, photographs, airplane models, ties) hang from the walls, and the in-house wine cellar specializes in Burgundy and Bordeaux.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
