Introducing The Betterment

Published on: June 11, 2019

We are pleased to announce that we are launching a brand new London restaurant, The Betterment, opening at The Biltmore Mayfair. Located on Grosvenor Square, the opening marks a grand return to the area as it is where Jason rose to prominence launching Maze in 2005. The Biltmore Mayfair is Europe’s first property within the LXR Hotels & Resorts collection.

The Betterment’s Head Chef will be Paul Walsh, who launched and led Jason Atherton’s City Social for five years and achieved the restaurant’s Michelin-starred status within seven months of its opening. The Betterment’s seasonally driven menu will feature beautifully presented dishes of wood-fired fish and meats, fresh seafood, signature salads and plant-based plates. At the heart of the restaurant will be a dramatic and rustic open grill, which will bring the kitchen into the dining room and add a sense of theatre to the space. Also in The Biltmore Mayfair and led by The Social Company is The Terrace, The Tea Lounge and The Pine Bar serving world-class cocktails.

On the launch of The Betterment, Jason Atherton comments: “To be working on the launch of The Betterment at The Biltmore Mayfair is incredibly exciting. When we were approached by Mr Kwek, Chairman of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, owner of the Biltmore Mayfair, we just knew it was an opportunity we couldn’t let pass. We chose the name The Betterment to encapsulate our journey from opening Pollen Street Social in 2011 to today, highlighting the progression of our food, ethos and way of thinking. To be returning to Mayfair’s Grosvenor Square after nine years is very special to me, and I’m thrilled to be doing it alongside world class chef and friend, Paul Walsh.”

Stay tuned for opening details.
