Executive Head Chef Carlos Martinez uses the finest selection of British produce in The Lyttelton Restaurant. He has worked at many Michelin starred restaurants and as Head Executive Chef of Cliveden’s three restaurants he retained their Michelin Star after Daniel Galmiche’s departure who he had worked with for some time. Originally from Valencia, Spain, he began helping at his grandmother’s restaurant at a very young age. It was her encouragement that motivated Carlos to pursue a career as a chef. Carlos spent time working across Europe including in Fribourg, Switzerland, with Chef Pierrot Ayer, from whom he learned modern techniques.
The Lyttelton Restaurant offers 45 covers in a spacious elegant environment. The decor includes an ivory, purple and grey colour palette with a stunning custom-designed chandelier at the centre of the room.
The Stafford London is fortunate to have Master Sommelier Gino Nardella overseeing its 380-year old Wine Cellars. Gino’s experience is vast, from his childhood spent on the family owned vineyard in Southern France to over 40 years accumulated experience as a Sommelier. The wine list at The Stafford London is extensive and covers all of the Old world and much of the New world. 17 wines are available by the glass.
After the meal why not enjoy a cocktail in the famous American Bar?
