Hot new eats
King’s Social House sets St. Mortiz’ dining scene ablaze with celebrated British chef and restauranteur, Jason Atherton.
The restaurant, formerly known as King’s Club, sees a complete redesign by Rosendale Design and features a showstopping mural by Swiss street artist duo, Bane + Pest. Grey pine panels, upcycled from old barns, slate columns and timber come together to create a luxe take on the farmhouses that pepper the Engadine countryside. Expect lavish dishes, from a truffle morel fondue to a roasted lobster with triplecooked duck fat chips. As the night goes on, the venue will transform into a club, with a programme of international DJS and slick drinks. Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, Via Serlas 27, 7500 St. Moritz, Switzerland.

New in Hackney’s food, drink and design consortium, Mare Street Market, is The Dining Room, a 45-seater restaurant serving up quintessential British fare. There’s a strong emphasis on East London’s homegrown producers and artisans – as with the rest of the market – which will complement neighbouring establishment, Open Kitchen. Enjoy Art Deco interiors, accentuated with antiquities from Pure White Lines, as well as the seasonal dishes by head chef Dominik Moldenhauer. The Duck Breast with Chestnut Gnocchi (£13/S$23) and Pastrami Braised Ox Cheek (£13) have proven popular among guests, but save room for the Brioche Doughnut. The latter is topped with salted caramel sauce and a cardamom cheesecake mousse (£5). Vegetarian and vegan menus are also available. 117 Mare Street, London E8 4RU, U.K. Tel: +44 20 3745 2470
