Two rosettes are only awarded to local restaurants “achieving high standards, consistency in delivery, precision and attention given to the selection of ingredients”. To be awarded with a double rosette, food must be prepared with “care, understanding and skill all while using good quality ingredients and ensuring each dish successfully delivers to the diner the promise of the menu”.
Serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, Podium offers seasonal contemporary British dishes, and is renowned for its creative afternoon teas which include miniature fancies, home-baked pastries and a selection of savouries.
Anthony Marshall, executive chef at London Hilton on Park Lane, said: “To say that we are delighted is an understatement, I am very proud that we have won a second AA Rosette for the food in Podium. I would like to thank the whole team for their commitment and effort, as we have always strived to get this second rosette.
“I would also like to thank our general manager here at the London Hilton on Park Lane, Michael Shepherd, for his support and belief in me for over 22 years. Now we must strive for the third.”
