THE FOOD

Since opening in 2014, The Colony has been a popular local Mayfair breakfast haunt for its morning menu of home-made viennoiseries, the freshest egg dishes and excellent coffees.

The restaurant's wide-ranging lunch and dinner menu celebrates chic transatlantic comfort food, with timeless New York grill classics, salads, shellfish and steaks, served alongside Chef Ben Boeynaems' contemporary take on enduring favourites.

Table-side preparation and flambés presented with a touch of theatre are perennially popular, as are the Colony's now iconic bespoke Ice-Cream Sundaes.

Ingredients are chosen for flavour and seasonality, and as locally sourced as possible.

THE CHEF

With an impeccable culinary background encompassing The Zetter Group, The Goring, The Capital Hotel, Petrus and Claridges, London born, bred and based Chef Ben Boeynaems joined The Beaumont just before lock-down, bringing a light and contemporary approach to The Colony's transatlantic menus.

The seasonality, sustainability and flavour of the ingredients he works with are of paramount importance to him and he has brought together an exciting roster of suppliers, producers and growers, from small farms to Elephant & Castle-based Crate to Plate, who grow nutrient dense, sustainable, chemical and pesticide-free lettuces especially for The Colony. He hand-selects the restaurant's British beef for the best fat content and marbling, and matures it in the restaurant's own salt maturing chamber for at least 42 days.
