Cedric Grolet at The Berkeley

13 December 2021

In early 2022, Cedric Grolet – widely considered and voted as one of the world’s best pastry chefs – will unveil his first patisserie outside of France, at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge. This will be a key new addition to The Berkeley’s already impressive food and beverage roster, bringing Grolet’s world renowned artistry to the capital. Creations will be available to take away or enjoy within the hotel, in an entirely new space.

Cedric Grolet at The Berkeley will see two iconic patisserie signatures brought together for the first time – Grolet’s famous Fruit creations, and his exquisite Flowers. Grolet is famed for his culinary ‘trompe-l'œil’ where patisserie genius is used to create optical illusions – these masterpieces cause a particular stir on the chef’s instagram channel, where he has over 2 million followers. Pastries, viennoisseries and exclusive new creations will also be available for guests and customers alike.

Opening in London is a monumental event for me. It’s the first time we will be outside of France, and London - particularly The Berkeley with its forward thinking attitude - was the obvious choice. It is such a special city and its energy completely inspires me. I can’t wait to open early next year and share with the capital the result of mixing my two universes for the very first time.

The entrance to Cedric Grolet at The Berkeley will be positioned on Knightsbridge, overlooking leafy Hyde Park. This patisserie – designed by Remi Tessier – will be a pastry theatre where Grolet’s team will create his masterpieces for all to see, and eight immersive seats will overlook the kitchen.

Customers will be able to take away, or sit and enjoy his creations at The Berkeley Café, an entirely new 60 seater space within the hotel. The Berkeley Café will serve ‘Le petit déjeuner’ and ‘Goûter Cedric Grolet’ – an entirely new teatime ritual.
