Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen

Description

This year’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will see brilliant chef Ani Arora serve up some bistro-inspired festive fare at Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen.

Open for lunch, dinner and any time in-between from 29th November, this irresistible pop-up will be available to book - which is highly recommended - but will also take walk-ins.

You'll find a warm and welcoming atmosphere at Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen. The space is set across some impressive tepees which are made up of large communal tables, cosy fire pits and rustic décor.

Great attractions await such as thrilling rides, ice skating, giant wheel and charming Christmas markets that together have seen Hyde Park Winter Wonderland become a landmark event for Londoners and visitors alike.

Ani’s brand Hankies, with its shared plates inspired by Indian street food, continues to delight at its Shaftesbury Avenue and Marble Arch restaurants. For the Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen concept, he has taken festive British favourites and given them a global twist.

Created using seasonal, responsibly sourced ingredients, dishes comprise starters such as cranberry & brie wonton with chilli cranberry jam as well as mains including turkey roulade with bacon & spinach stuffing & glazed root vegetables and steak pie, mash & classic mushroom gravy. Finish with, what else but, a Christmas pudding slice with brandy sauce, or perhaps some raspberry & white chocolate cheesecake for the less traditional.

All dishes can be enjoyed à la carte or as a set offering with two courses priced at £23.50 per head or three courses at £27.50.

The restaurant is also the ideal destination for families before and after pre-bookable attractions, such as the Magical Ice Kingdom’s “A Christmas Carol” and spectacular shows, including Paddington on Ice, with a kid’s menu available for just £8.50.

If you're looking for something smaller and want to enjoy the bar, Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen also offers a joyful selection of mulled wine and cider. In addition, there's champagne, prosecco, spirits and craft beers. 

Food on offer includes tasty options such as crispy prawns with wasabi drizzle & tomato salsa, cheese jalapeños or venison & fig samosa served with apple chutney.

Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen which will run from 21st November as a bar, guests will be welcomed in with a tipple (or two) with food service starting from 29th November.

  • A word from the chef:

    Renowned culinary talent Ani Aurora was born and brought up in Delhi. Following his graduation, he was headhunted by Oberoi Hotels, going on to work with them for five years, the youngest Indian chef in that huge empire. Travelling to London in 2003 in search of new challenges, he opened Moti Mahal in Covent Garden where he spent over a decade as head chef. Ani then went on to open three London restaurants of his own: Nirvana Kitchen in Marylebone, Hankies Café in Shaftesbury Avenue and Hankies Marble Arch. When he is not working in his kitchen, Ani travels the world catering for private individuals as well as prestigious events such as the Hero World Challenge at Albany, Bahamas (hosted by Tiger Woods) and the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum at Davos. An avid researcher of India’s ancient culinary traditions, Ani has also devoted his career to the gathering of long-forgotten rural recipes. The result was the best-selling book, Food of the Grand Trunk Road, written with Hardeep Singh Kohli.
