W Dining Series
The Perception launches Electric Dining Series with Coveted Chef Magnus Reid.
Calling all Foodies!
From the opening of The Perception on Friday 27th October, the bar and lounge will welcome some of the capital’s most playful and renowned culinary talents to create a dinner menu combining their unique gastronomic identity with the daring attitude of W Hotels.
We’re kicking off the series with the highly-acclaimed Magnus Reid, owner of Shoreditch haunt, C.R.E.A.M and Hackney favourite, Legs, which gained a Bib Gourmand after just four months of opening. With no official cooking qualifications, his past life working in a tattoo studio and a transcontinental upbringing beginning in Australia, Reid’s dynamic background and current foothold in the east of the capital will inject a new zest into central London’s food offering, challenging the conventional codes of luxury hotel dining.
“I’m hoping to bring a pinch of east London’s casual attitude to the unmistakably vibrant Soho, complementing the glam atmosphere and the bustling streets surrounding the hotel. The menu will showcase my passion for quality ingredients, bold flavours and sharp plating perfectly paired with the Head Barman’s new killer cocktail menu.” Magnus Reid says.
Magnus’ menu for The Perception remixes Mediterranean, Australian and Modern-European flavours served as snack, small, medium or large plates creating a flexible dining experience that encourages sharing. Guests will savour twisted classics such as burrata with chilli jam and fried garlic and show-stopping larger plates like the parpadelle with crab and chilli or the impressive gilt head bream crudo.
Dinner is served in the W Lounge, an area housing intimate leather booths sitting snug against the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Wardour Street. The show-stopping long sharing table, embellished with British pennies, is the hot-spot of the house for those looking to keep it fun with groups of friends.
The first menu by Magnus Reid is available from 27th October until end of February 2018.
Monday – Sunday, from 6pm to 11pm.
