Davies and Brook, Allied Works’ newest collaboration with Chef Daniel Humm, opens at Claridge’s

Dec 16, 2019

After months of careful preparation, Davies and Brook, the latest restaurant by Chef Daniel Humm and his team at Make it Nice, officially opened December 9th in the historic dining room of Claridge’s Hotel, London. The project marks a continuation of the collaboration between Chef Humm and Brad Cloepfil, and builds on their redesign of New York’s Eleven Madison Park in 2017. Davies and Brook was hailed by London’s Evening Standard as the most eagerly anticipated opening of the year, and the reviews of the cuisine, the atmosphere, and the overall experience have been glowing.

Named for the intersection in Mayfair where it resides, the restaurant is a study in contemporary design within a traditional and refined setting, connecting with the vibrant culture, cuisine and urban fabric of London. The design looks to the rich history of the space to reveal an essence that is uniquely Claridge’s. With sculpted light reflectors in the ceiling coffers, colonnades wrapped in Irish cast crystal, custom textiles, furniture and tableware, the design revives and illuminates the space in diverse ways, creating a room that shimmers with light and energy, and provides a space that serves the singular creativity and culinary vision of Chef Humm. 

A selection of recent press is below; more details and photography to follow in the days ahead.
