Daniel Humm crosses the pond in time for Christmas

After months of build up, Davies and Brook at Claridge’s by Daniel Humm — who split with his long-time collaborator, Will Guidara in July — finally has an opening date: Monday 9 December. The three-Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park chef’s London debut is being framed as a “sibling” to his New York restaurant, which was named the “world’s best” in 2017 — dishes such as the famous roasted duck, which is dry aged in-house for 14 days and glazed with lavender and honey, will cross the pond. Humm and Claridge’s have history: as a 15-year-old commis chef he did a stint in the kitchen. Customers can now make a reservation here.
