The Franklin Restaurant – Decorated in dramatic monochrome, with velvet, marble, and immense Venetian églomisé mirrors, the restaurant makes an immediate impact — and with seating for just 30, your experience will be all the more special for its intimacy. The menu from Chef Alfredo Russo blends Italian traditions with modern techniques, resulting in dishes like octopus with potato foam and olive iced powder, or lamb casserole with roasted carrots and liquorice radish. Even breakfast is indulgent — expect truffled eggs and pancakes with Chantilly and maple syrup.
The Franklin Bar – Take a seat on a velvet stool at the glamorous mirror-walled, candle-strewn bar and, as ice clinks in your glass, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to the Roaring Twenties. Alongside seven different Champagnes, 22 gins, and a host of innovative cocktails, there’s a delicious and creative bar menu.
