Restaurant[edit]

Gary Rhodes who worked at the hotel restaurant

In 1974 the hotel's restaurant, The Capital Restaurant, was one of the first three hotel restaurants in London to achieve a Michelin Star under chefs Richard Shepherd and Brian Turner.[4] In 2001 it earned a second star under Éric Chavot.[5] Other notable chefs who have worked there include Gary Rhodes and Paul Merrett.[6] The restaurant lost its stars after Chavot's departure in 2009.[7]

By 2013, the hotel's restaurant had been replaced by a new restaurant, Outlaw's at The Capital, the only London restaurant of seafood chef Nathan Outlaw.[8] Outlaw's at The Capital has one Michelin star.[citation needed]
