St. John Hotel, London

Something not to miss.

The St. John Hotel will open in November 2010 at 1 Leicester St, London.

Manzi’s “famous seafood restaurant” had been open for some 60 years on the same site. Along with J. Sheekey’s it was the last of the long established “theatre” restaurants in the West End. In a conversation about future thoughts Manzi’s was mentioned and then Trevor Gulliver and Fergus Henderson were reminded that it was a hotel too, they were intrigued. There had been time spent in Beirut looking at a restaurant and hotel project and a seed had been sown there.

Like most London folk Fergus and Trevor have memories of Manzi’s through the years and if it was to have a new life it seemed right that St. John should be the ones to do it. Through the years the building had developed its own extensions, corners and idiosyncracies, the truth was that it needed to be completely rebuilt and this is what has been done.

‘Nose-to-tail eating’ has become ‘From table to bed’
