The dining room features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, giving diners a view of the kitchen and its unique pulley system. Modeled after a version used by the royal court, the pulleys rotate the spit over an open fire. The ivory-painted walls are decorated with custom-made porcelain wall sconces in the shape of antique jelly moulds and of course, the uninterrupted views of Hyde Park brings the connection to history full circle.
