Founded by KP Kofler, Pret a Diner started with an idea, which envisioned a dining experience where Michelin starred food, masterful cocktails, art, music and people are all fused together to create a sensory experience for culture seekers wherever they land. Not bound by buildings or borders, Pret A Diner journeys across the globe embracing new traditions.
The entourage of PRET A DINER are now preparing for the next leg of their journey, their comeback to the UK and will be taking over the exclusive private member’s club The Domino, located within the iconic Hotel Café Royal.
“There is no other place in the world that has hosted so many icons. Rock stars, politicians, actors and writers like Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Virginia Woolf, Winston Churchill, Princess Diana, Brigitte Bardot, David Bowie, Muhammed Ali, Andy Warhol, The Beatles, Madonna and Tracey Emin to name just a few. The legacy of Café Royal is soaked in inspiration. We can’t wait to become a part of this history!” KP Kofler, Founder of PRET A DINER
Hotel Café Royal’s Executive Chef, Andrew Turner will team up with two New York based chefs Patti Jackson (Michelin star restaurant, Delaware and Hudson in Brooklyn) and West Village resident Ryan Tate (formerly at Blenheim and Le Restaurant where he garnered a Michelin star within six months of opening his latter establishment). All chefs will create a combined sharing selection of snacks, followed by one course from each chef forming a four-course menu. Tiziano Tasso, Bar Manager of The Club at Café Royal, is to collaborate with Dominic Jacobs (The Whip, Mayfair) to create a range of cocktails, inspired by the original Café Royal cocktail book, compiled in 1937.
Local Brit Jake Wood-Evans and Cape Town talent Ryan Hewett, join Pret a Diner in artistic revolt. Evoking faded memories and spectres of a past time, Jake Wood-Evans’ oil paintings often depict disintegrating and dissolving moments. Taking inspiration from a range of Baroque Old Masters and contemporary figurative painters; Wood-Evans creates images that are both unsettling and beautiful. Awarded a scholarship from the Royal Academy, Jake is quickly earning a reputation as one of the leading talents in British painting. Ryan Hewett has been described as one of South Africa’s most revered artists and has held numerous sell out solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London and Berlin. Hewett’s work morphs from realism to abstraction and his portraits evoke a tension between external representation and what lies beneath. Renowned for brooding evocative paintings, he explores the polarities of portraiture by embracing the ties between self and other.
