Read's Hotel adds 'chef's table'

Read’s Hotel & Spa is adding a ‘chef’s table’ to the kitchen of its Michelin-starred restaurant with a view to attracting more corporate groups. The Mallorca-based property, whose recent clients include Boeing, Hyundai, Mercedes Benz and Boeing, is adding the facility in response to the concept’s growing popularity in prestigious venues such as Gordon Ramsay’s Claridges. It will be the first restaurant on the island to offer the facility that allows guests to sample dishes in the kitchen as they are being prepared. Kentish chef Marc Fosh will remain in charge of the restaurant’s menu, and the project will be launched on 22 December after a three-week renovation beginning on Monday. Read’s Hotel & Spa marketing director Simone Wyse said the facility would increase its appeal for corporate groups. "A chef’s table is in the ‘in-thing’ in London at the moment, and it gives a VIP-feel to the restaurant, which has become well known on the island," Wyse said. "This, coupled with the hotel’s range of facilities for delegates, including the refurbished spa that opens in February, will bolster our offering for groups."
