Expansion Plans and Early Success
London icon, The Wolseley, is set to expand its grand European style internationally, driven by the collaboration between Minor Hotels and The Wolseley Hospitality Group. The iconic brand aims to establish its presence in gateway cities across key markets. This strategic move comes in the wake of the remarkable reception of Café Wolseley during its three-month residency at Minor Hotels’ flagship property, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. The demand for The Wolseley’s fine European fare extended far beyond its home in London.
A Blend of British Heritage and European Grandeur
Renowned for its fusion of British heritage and European grandeur, The Wolseley on Piccadilly has emerged as one of London’s most esteemed restaurants. It has garnered international acclaim and achieved the status of an iconic institution, backed by numerous accolades and awards. The upcoming months will witness the debut of a sister restaurant in London’s financial district, as a precursor to the brand’s global expansion plans. The Wolseley aims to establish its presence in target locations, including New York, Singapore, Shanghai, and Dubai.
London Icon The Wolseley at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel
Café Wolseley at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel mirrors the splendor of its heritage-listed London counterpart. Drawing inspiration from the Classic Revival style, the interiors pay homage to the flagship location. Starting in late April, the kitchen has been under the expert guidance of David Stevens, the Group Executive Chef at The Wolseley Hospitality Group. Stevens, formerly the Head Chef at The Wolseley in London, brought along a team of chefs to deliver an authentic taste of The Wolseley to Thai diners.
Patrons in Bangkok can indulge in an all-day menu at Café Wolseley, featuring European grand café classics alongside contemporary additions. The culinary offerings include tantalizing dishes like dressed Dorset crab and Coq au Vin, a red wine-braised chicken with pancetta. To satisfy the sweet tooth, the restaurant offers decadent desserts such as apple strudel with calvados cream, Coupe Lucian sundae drizzled in butterscotch sauce, and mixed berry pavlova with strawberry compote and whipped cream.
As Minor Hotels and The Wolseley Hospitality Group embark on their strategic expansion journey, The Wolseley’s fine European fare is set to captivate the palates of discerning diners in gateway cities around the world.
