This evening (Monday 5th February), Brooklands by Claude Bosi at The Peninsula London has been awarded two Michelin Stars, the most sought after accolade dedicated to restaurants showcasing outstanding cooking, in its debut year.

Under the guidance and leadership of Chef Director, Claude Bosi, and Chef de Cuisine, Francesco Dibenedetto, the newly launched restaurant pairs creative European cuisine with The Peninsula London’s unparalleled hospitality.

Brooklands menus are crafted using the finest British ingredients and traditional French techniques, offering guests a modern yet classic fine dining experience. Chefs Bosi and Dibenedetto, whose long standing culinary partnership has brought both acclaim, work closely together to create seven-, five-, and three-course menus that invite diners on a gastronomic journey across the British Isles.

Bosi’s decision to focus on modern British cuisine through the lens of his classic French training invites creativity and innovation, and places British produce at the forefront of dishes served and stories told through the menu. The pioneering spirit of the Concorde that inspired the restaurant underpins each culinary decision to guarantee an exceptional experience for each guest.

Working together with remarkable suppliers across the British Isles, the team at Brooklands by Claude Bosi ensure only the highest quality of ingredients to match the levels of skill used to create the final dishes. Seasonal, signature dishes are a roadmap of the UK. Current dishes including Exmoor caviar with Roscoff onion and duck jelly; Great Fen Farm celeriac nosotto with crab and coconut; Racan guinea fowl with sea beet and Scottish razor clams; and Scottish cèpe, banana and crème fraîche for dessert.

The unwavering attention to detail in technique and flavour are not just complemented by the design, but directly informed and impacted by the space. The distinct design by architects Archer Humphryes is inspired by its namesake Brooklands racetrack – synonymous with ground-breaking speed, flight, and adventure of the Concorde. The dramatic dining room pays full-sensory tribute to the supersonic jet, with an arresting scale replica that spans the entire ceiling, whilst the bar echoes the cutting-edge achievements in automotive and aviation design.

The forward-thinking ethos of Brooklands’ design and cuisine is equally reflected in its exceptional wine list from Head Sommelier, Gioele Musco, reflects Lyon-born Bosi’s heritage with a focus on French vintages, alongside an expansive list of New World wines.

The Michelin Stars for Brooklands by Claude Bosi marks the most recent award from Michelin for Chef Bosi. His first solo venture, Hibiscus, won its first Michelin star one year after opening, with a second in 2004. Claude Bosi at Bibendum launched in March 2017 with Dibenedetto, and in October of the same year it was awarded two stars; which it has retained ever since.

In response to the news he comments; “To create a new experience with Francesco and our incredible team that now holds two Michelin Stars is a proud moment for us all. This restaurant epitomises our dedication to hospitality and our continued strive for innovation, so it means a lot to have been recognised for the hard work. Thank you to the team at The Peninsula London for giving us the freedom to create, and the most beautiful space in which to let our food shine.”

Chef de Cuisine, Francesco Dibenedetto, notes; “I have been working with Claude for almost ten years and I believe that we have grown together to create a unique and distinct identity which has been truly realised at our newest restaurant. Being given the opportunity to launch Brooklands, from developing the menu from scratch, to visiting each of our suppliers to make sure every single element is the best it can be, has been one of the most rewarding experiences. It’s a true passion project.”

Opened in October 2023, Brooklands by Claude Bosi is set on the rooftop of The Peninsula London hotel on Hyde Park Corner. The restaurant offers uninterrupted views of London’s skyline as well as a 360° drinking and dining experience, from its own dedicated entrance on the ground floor of the hotel, to Brooklands Bar, and The Delage Lounge.

In January 2024, the restaurant launched the Concorde Lunch, a three-course menu that offers diners a taste of the culinary excellence that defines the Brooklands dining experience without compromising on the innovation and quality. Priced at £58, the menu takes diners on a gastronomic journey across the British Isles over the course of lunch, with dishes including St. Austell Bay Mussels, paired with cider and three-cornered garlic; Veal cheek with smoked blanquette and pickled red onion; and Ringden Farm quince with cocoa mucilage ice cream and Moscato emulsion.

Created by The Peninsula London’s Director of Mixology, Florian Thireau, the bar’s cocktails balance precision engineering with inventive creativity alongside a menu that highlights reimagined classics using modern and playful techniques and fresh, daily-made ingredients including shrubs, tinctures and infused spirits.

Hosted by Master of Cigars Manu Harit, The Delage Lounge offers a rarefied and personalised cigar experience with a Tasting Room and Tabac, housing a humidor which displays a collection of over 2,000 premier cigars from around the world.

The restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Prices start from £95pp for a two course lunch menu, up to £195pp for a seven course menu, and additional wine pairing from £105pp. The Concorde menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday between 12pm - 1.30pm and is priced at £58 for three courses. Private hire with bespoke culinary experiences from Claude Bosi are also available in the private dining room, Mach II.
