The Petrichor has received its second AA Rosette Award for culinary excellence.
Petrichor is situated on the first floor of the hotel overlooking the exclusive boutiques and galleries of Jermyn Street, St James's and Piccadilly. The restaurant is so named after the scent of rain on earth after a dry spell arising from the yellow organic oil that yields the Petrichor (scent). The restaurant serves a British breakfast daily, a la carte and set lunch service Monday-Friday and pre-theatre and a la carte dinner every day. Head Chef Nitin Padwal and his team create bi-monthly changing menus using the best seasonal and regional produce. All recipes and dishes are entirely ?homemade? and are prepared with creative flair and passion.
About the AA Rosette
The long-established Rosette scheme recognises successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Success in achieving Rosettes is based on one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant and are solely awarded by AA Hotel and Restaurant Inspectors. The AA Restaurant Guide define the award of Two Rosettes to: "Excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency. A greater precision is apparent in the cooking, and there will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients."

We are delighted to achieve our second Rosette having retained our one Rosette award for the last 4 years. We set the goal to get our second Rosette because myself and the team have always wanted to take our food quality and presentation to a higher level. We are proud to receive this award that confirms we have achieved this goal. It has been a great journey and everyone has enjoyed being part of it."
