Exciting new eating and drinking space arrives at
Hotel Indigo London Kensington Earl’s Court
Dynamic hospitality brand the Quarter Group is joining forces with IHG to launch The Kensington Quarter, an innovative new café, bar, restaurant and deli at the four star boutique Hotel Indigo London Kensington Earl’s Court.
Opening on 1st November, The Kensington Quarter will present an exciting all-day dining option for locals and hotel guests alike.The concept will follow in the successful footsteps of the four other eateries in Doron and Valeria Zilkha’s Quarter Group collection, all of which combine stylish yet relaxed surroundings with a passion for fine food and wine.
A strong community spirit lies at the heart of everything the Zilkhas do and a home from home atmosphere will be a key part of this new offering.
Designed by award winning consultancy Dexter Moren Associates, The Kensington Quarter will offer west London a fabulous new venue in which to drink and dine as well as a social space for the local community. It is destined to become a much favoured haunt throughout the day, whether it’s a business breakfast, a lunch with friends, a post work drink or a romantic evening meal.
Under the command of head chef Riad Zailuk (Oxo Tower Brasserie, Pont de la Tour, The Phene), The Kensington Quarter will offer a range of imaginative, locally inspired dishes. In keeping with the Quarter Group’s ethos, all will be prepared from organic, seasonal and locally crafted ingredients, with meat and poultry sourced from independent suppliers who only engage in ethical methods.
Menu highlights will feature starters such as handpicked Cornish crab salad and salad of confit Lancaster duck leg, whilst mains will include native lobster roll; five spices braised mutton shoulder and free range chicken & pigeon pastilla pie.
Desserts are equally as impressive, comprising irresistible concoctions like Valrhona chocolate fondant and spicy banana & ginger tarte tatin.
The Kensington Quarter will also offer an array of sharing platters, from Mediterranean meze through to Quarter seafood platter, the latter a true pescatarian’s delight with stuffed baby squid with herb cous cous just one of an array of delicacies.
Accompanying the food is a wine list that works its way from quaffable Italian and southern French wines to top names from Rioja and Burgundy. Customers can also choose from an inventive cocktail list spearheaded by the signature Kensington Infusion (Jack Daniel’s No 7 American whiskey, crème de cassis, a drop of coffee and London stout beer.)
Set to be a hugely popular part of The Kensington Quarter will be its in-house deli. Valeria Zilkha has spent months sourcing a fine array of locally sourced artisan produce. Among the many standouts are Doisy & Dam’s superdelicious luxury organic chocolate; Farrington’s award-winning rapeseed oil; organic apple juice from family run Moor’s Farm in Kent and Dodd’s gin, a small batch gin made from organic botanicals created by Battersea-based The London Distillery.
The Kensington Quarter will be open Monday to Sunday, 7am to 11pm.
